Sarasota Residential Internet Coverage

The coastal community of Sarasota has dozens of established neighborhoods, many of which are served by multiple internet service providers.

Starting in the western coastal neighborhoods of Lido Key and Saint Armands, the service area runs east to the city limits in Glen Oaks and Beechwood. The network reaches Indian Beach in the north and Granada in the south.

High-speed fiber internet is provided by FPL FiberNet to almost all of Sarasota. Only small parts of Lido Shores and Bay Isle fall outside the FPL FiberNet service area.

When it's working its great. The problem is the it's not reliable. Ot goes down at least three times a week. You would be streaming a movie and all of the sudden it's gone. When it's up the speed is enough to support two or three devices.

Very good availability. I haven't noticed any downtime in the last three months. I do notice some slow down during certain periods but otherwise excellent service.

Comcast has had almost 100% availability since I started using it over a year ago. I have noticed periods of slower performance in the evenings. I believe cost for Comcast ISP service is on the high side compared to other ISPs.
