What is the best internet provider in Tampa?

Tampa Residential Internet Coverage

Tampa is one of the largest cities, in terms of population and physical size. Despite Tamps_s sprawling layout, internet coverage is varied and far-reaching, providing customers with many options.

Fiber service is provided by Frontier. Their Fios reaches most key points in Tampa, reaching points as far south as Ballast Point and Interlay. Service is available in northern communities like University Square and Terrace Park. The vast majority of areas between these points are also covered, including coastal communities.

DSL is also provided by Frontier, although coverage is more limited than it is with their fiber service. Certain parts of eastern Tampa have access to Xfinity cable internet. Included neighborhoods are Palmetto Beach, the historic neighborhood of East Ybor, and Highland Pines. The city_s business and civic district is also in Xfinity_s service area.

Customers of Megapath can choose from standard Ethernet over copper internet or DSL. These coverage maps barely overlap, and together they span nearly all of Tampa. Central neighborhoods like Seminole Heights, Wellswood, and Parkland Estates have coverage from both types of internet.

High-speed fiber internet through Cogent Communication is just starting to expand into Tampa. Barbour Island, the Channel District, parts of downtown Tampa, and the downtown arts district are serviced by Cogent Communication fiber. FPL FiberNet is available in northern parts of Tampa. Service is available in the northern peninsula communities of Bayshore Gardens, Gulfview, and Beach Park. Neighborhoods north and east of these communities are part of the service area. Customers that choose Brighthouse Networks can get high-speed cable set up anywhere in Tampa.

Finally, covering about 99% of Tampa, HughesNet is one of the largest satellite providers in this area.

My mom paid for the 400mbps 6 days ago and still no one has came for installation and we’ve been told 3 times they were going to come out that day and still never came for no reason at all. The lady on customer service said she put us on a priority list and still no show. Just doesn’t make sense whatsoever

Verizon Fios is ok. I thought it would be faster and it is expensive. I would change however in my market the other options are worse.
