Orlando residential internet coverage
AT&T , Spectrum, and CenturyLink are the largest internet providers in Orlando. EarthLink and Xfinity are also available, but their coverage is not quite so widespread. Viasat and HughesNet are your only satellite internet options if landline internet services are not available in your area.
Spectrum is a cable internet provider that blankets the entire city and most of the surrounding suburbs. Its plans range from up to 300 Mbps to 1,000 Mbps (wireless speeds may vary).
AT&T also has widespread coverage in Orlando. Its fiber internet ranges from 300 Mbps to 5,000 Mbps, while its DSL service maxes out at 75 Mbps or 100 Mbps, depending on the plan.
CenturyLink has better coverage on the west side compared to the southeast side of the city. CenturyLink offers just two plans: fiber internet with speeds up to 940 Mbps and DSL internet with speeds up to 100 Mbps.
Xfinity is a fiber and cable internet provider. It’s also available to much of Orlando, including neighborhoods extending all the way south to Kissimmee. Xfinity’s coverage doesn’t quite make it to northern parts of the city, however.
Finally, Summit Broadband provides fiber internet to Eatonville and much of the city proper. Cogent Communications beams internet connections to a very limited area: Callahan, Lake Eola Heights, and Lake Cherokee.
If no other options are available in your area, Viasat and HughesNet are your best alternatives. Satellite internet speeds are slower than physical connections, and the plans are more expensive.
