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.

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.
