St. Petersburg Residential Internet Coverage

Jutting out onto a peninsula in western Florida, the city of St. Petersburg has many established internet service providers that bring coverage to its residents.

Frontier is one of the largest providers in this region. Their fiber network covers most of the city, reaching southern areas like Greater Pinellas and Bahama Shores before reaching north as far as Riviera Bay and Brighton Bay. While the fiber network doesn't reach the entire western half of the city, the DSL network does span all of St. Petersburg.

Service is available through WOW! This company has a network that runs as far west as Jungle Terrace, as far east as Venetian Isles, as far north as Brighton Bay, and as far south as Isla del Sol.

Through Megapath, most neighborhoods can access high-speed coverage. Some southern neighborhoods are not in this provider's service area; these neighborhoods include Child's Park and Perry Bayview.

Fiber coverage is offered by FPL FiberNet to most areas, except a handful of southwestern and southcentral neighborhoods.

Last, reaching the whole city of St. Petersburg, Brighthouse Networks is a popular choice in this area.

Every night my tv stops, buffers and you can even watch a show without stopping in mid speech. I could call and be on the phone for ever.

They say they give you 500 megs however on Wi-Fi you run between 10:00 and 200 mags you never see 500 megs from spectrum. Also they're streaming is absolutely pathetic I stream music it lasted for about 2 and 1/2 to 3 minutes before the music started skipping and messing up total waste if you have Google minis in the house 90% of the time the Google minis say that there is a glitch so obviously they don't work I've had technicians there and they told me if I want to have them do any work it'll cost me $70 so they are truly the worst company I have ever dealt with.

I set up service with Spectrum for internet on conditions that they will use my ACP with 0 money from my pocket. They ended up charging me $70 rounded without further notice. It's a total shock to me.

I just spent 20 minutes on hold to speak to a representative. They have raised our rates a couple of times, and we have to spend a ridiculous amount of time on the phone before a representative manages to come up with a slightly lower rate. When we called this evening to tell them we were switching to Direct TV, all of the sudden they are able to drop our monthly bill even further. Why do cable companies feel they need to take advantage of long term customers instead of reward them for their patronage.

Frontier told me I could have my old phone number and then, that didn't happen. I called 6 or more times to figure this out and the billing was different than the special they offered me. It seriously reduced me to tears. No agent took notes, and they didn't know what the other agents told me and they kept me on the phone for as long 30++ minutes, many times when I called. The agents lied to me on multiple occasions. I have never been reduced to almost crying, due to frustration before, from a customer service department.

This was the worst experience with a cable and internet service I have ever had. From the initial call, to not setting up appropriate installation, to mistepresenting channels, price, and equipment. Then to charging for services. It even used. The worst service and product. Will never recommend services.
