Internet providers in Orlando, Florida

Orlando is an international tourist destination, with wide-ranging attractions from Walt Disney World and the Kennedy Space Center, to major sports like Orlando Magic basketball and Orlando Solar Bears hockey. If you’re lucky enough to live here, though, there will still be times you’ll skip the crowds and stay home. Orlando is also fantastic for that. With so many internet providers to choose from, you’ll never be out of the action.

As is true in any of the 50 states, you can opt for satellite service from HughesNet or Viasat at download speeds of up to 25 Mbps, a speed generally regarded as adequate for streaming live video to one or two PCs, TVs or other devices. Satellite services connect you to the internet by using a satellite dish on your rooftop, which communicates with satellites in the sky. Much higher speeds are available in and around Orlando, though, from multiple cables, Digital Subscriber Line (DSL) and fiber network providers. The faster the internet service, the better it is for multi-player gaming and streaming sports, movies and TV to multiple devices.

National cable providers in the Orlando area include Comcast Xfinity, offering download speeds of up to 100 Mbps and Charter Spectrum, with download speeds up to 200 Mbps. Internet cable services run over the same lines as those used for cable TV. A cable modem is needed for data access. Beyond that, local telecom providers Summit Broadband and Smart City offer blazing speeds of up to 1 Gbps using fiber-optic networks, which work by sending beams of light over special cables made of strands of glass. Meanwhile, AT&T and CenturyLink each offer a choice of fiber or more-affordable but lower-speed DSL in various communities. DSL uses the same copper wiring as standard home telephone service but requires a special DSL modem. DSL plans under 25 Mbps are usually fine for email, casual browsing and work-from-home as long as streaming media isn’t involved.

The three largest internet providers near Orlando are AT&T, Charter Spectrum and CenturyLink. As with other companies, speeds vary according to the exact location. You can use our zip code tool to find plans in your neighborhood.

AT&T

One of the largest telecommunications companies worldwide, AT&T, is a highly reliable provider offering internet in 22 states. AT&T began in 2014 to build up Gigabit fiber optic services in dozens of U.S. cities. Nationwide, most of AT&T’s internet services are still based on lower-speed DSL. In Orlando, however, AT&T is now phasing out DSL in favor of fiber. In portions of Orlando where AT&T services are available, the company offers both 300 Mbps and 940 Mbps fiber plans to new customers. On the positive side, AT&T imposes no data limits and lets you save money by bundling internet service with both TV and phone. On the negative side, the company requires either a 12- or 24-month contract, and early termination fees (EFTs) apply if you break the agreement. AT&T’s prices start at $60 monthly. Check the zip code tool to find out if your area is covered.

Charter Spectrum

Through a merger in 2016 with Time-Warner and Bright House Networks, Charter Communications became the second-largest broadband provider in the U.S., available to more than 30 percent of the nation’s population. It offers a Spectrum Gigabit plan with download speeds of up to 940 Mbps in select U.S. markets. Charter Spectrum has a big presence in Orlando, but its fastest-advertised internet plan operates at download speeds of up to 200 Mbps. Spectrum does offer several great perks to customers, though, including contract-free plans, no data limits, a free modem and free anti-virus software. You can bundle internet service with TV and/or phone, as well. Plans start at $49.99 per month. You can search your address in our zip code tool to find out if Charter Spectrum is available in your neighborhood.

CenturyLink

Much like AT&T, CenturyLink offers both fiber and lower-speed DSL access in large portions of the U.S., including Orlando. It offers DSL at download speeds of up to 100 Mbps in 36 states, and 940 Mbps fiber plans are also available in a growing number of cities. In contrast to AT&T, though, CenturyLink is not phasing out DSL in Orlando. CenturyLink offers a “price for life” deal on all plans with download speeds up to 100 Mbps. Plan prices start at $49 per month, but availability depends on your location (check using our zip code tool). CenturyLink plans are contract-free. The company also rolls in free CenturyLink@Ease internet security. Phone bundles are available, but TV bundles are not.

Best internet speeds in Orlando, Florida

  • Summit Broadband: Once dubbed Orlando Telephone Company, Summit Broadband offers 1 Gbps fiber connectivity in Orlando. TV and phone services are also available on Summit's fiber-optic network. There are no data caps or throttling, but services are limited to select pockets in the southern part of the city, including portions of the Walt Disney World Resort. What's more, services are offered solely through bulk agreements with homeowners' associations (HOAs).
  • Smart City Telecom: Smart City Telecom is another small local provider near Orlando with 1 Gbps symmetrical fiber connectivity. Its fiber services, however, are only available to homes in some subdivisions of the city of Celebration. In Celebration, Lake Buena Vista and Little Lake Bryan, Smart City also offers DSL at download speeds of up to 12 Mbps to apartment complexes with contracts. Depending on the technology used, DSL connections can be symmetrical, but many are asymmetrical, with much slower speeds for uploads than downloads. Smart City's DSL speeds vary. Smart City customers receive free email accounts plus access to a network of WiFi hotspots in downtown Celebration.
  • AT&T: AT&T's fastest speeds in Orlando are available through its fiber network at 940 Mbps for downloads and 940 Mbps for uploads. Symmetrical speeds of up to 300 Mbps are also available on fiber for slightly lower pricing. For TV bundles, AT&T offers two different services: DirecTV and U-verse. But a contract is required and there are early termination fees (EFTs).
  • CenturyLink: Much like AT&T, CenturyLink is a large multi-state DSL and fiber-optic internet provider that's expanding its 940 Mbps symmetrical fiber network in Orlando. Its fiber network is still limited to certain pockets of the city. CenturyLink's lower-speed DSL network is prevalent in several communities to the south, north and west of Orlando.
  • Charter Spectrum: The highest advertised download speed for Charter Spectrum in the Orlando area is 200 Mbps/10 Mbps, but the cable company offers downloads of up to 940 Mbps/35 Mbps in some other U.S. cities.  Right now, cable connections are asymmetrical. If you see two speeds listed for the same plan, the second number is for uploads. Generally, low upload speeds don't matter much, but they can hinder performance when uploading large files or videoconferencing. Spectrum will buy you out of an existing contract with another provider for up to $500.
