Internet Access in Lake Wales, Florida

Viasat Internet has the most coverage in Lake Wales. HughesNet is also a common option.

20.46 percent of residents (7,000 residents total) have a single choice for home residential broadband, or none.

The data on this page is sourced from FCC filings. Data is enhanced through privatized databases and direct provider reporting to output more useful results than governmental websites. Information on pricing and speeds of listed Internet plans is generated by manually collecting thousands of plans each year.

Frontier Communications provides a common second choice to the primary providers (Viasat and HughesNet). They offer 84 percent local coverage and a maximum speed of 12 Mbps. Wired Internet isn't the only choice for Internet in Lake Wales. For example, fixed wireless outfits like MORnet Communications are able to deliver 20 Mbps or more over wireless links. Outside of home broadband, there are also 7 providers in Lake Wales marketing enterprise-level subscriptions like SD-WAN or custom fiber loops. The small business listings on this page include all providers with explicit business plans advertised on their website.

In summary, Lake Wales's broadband situation follows a similar pattern to other Florida metro areas: strong availability of bundled cable and DSL, but limited choice since most houses are limited to one option for setting up either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern has a simple reason. Broadband Internet companies used to be TV and landline telephone corporations. So, they already own these legacy wired networks on utility poles to deliver broadband bundles.
