While the weather, beaches, and people will keep you busy in Ft. Lauderdale, you still need internet. To help shop, here are the best three providers in the city.
One of the best internet providers in the country, things are no different in Ft. Lauderdale. Xfinity gives you lots of options when choosing your internet plan, and all of them are fast. Standard packages will give you around 150 Mbps maximum, but you can also get 1000 Mbps if you feel you really need it.
It’s also super easy to save on your internet by bundling it with other services Xfinity offers, such as cable TV and phone service.
As a result, when looking for internet, you search should start, and might end, with Xfinity.
Another very viable option in the Ft. Lauderdale area is AT&T. Average speeds are around 200 Mbps, which is much more than even moderately heavy users need from their internet.
AT&T also offers other services, such as U-verse TV and DirecTV, which means there are lots of ways to bundle and save.
Around 30 percent of the city can also get AT&T Fiber, which delivers speeds up to 1000 Mbps. When this is more widely-available, expect AT&T to move up on this list.
IF you’re not interested in getting the fastest internet out there and would prefer to save some money, Earthlink, which is available to about 75 percent of Ft. Lauderdale, is an excellent option.
Connection speeds are slower – the average is about 30 Mbps and the maximum is around 100 Mbps – but if this is going to be enough for you, then definitely think about going with Earthlink, doing so could save you $20-30 per month.
Overall, since Ft. Lauderdale is so large, you have lots of options for internet providers. But these are the three best and are where you should be starting your search.
