How can I compare the major internet providers in Miami?

It takes time to find the right internet provider that meets your needs. Here is a look at some of the most important factors to consider before signing up with a new provider or committing to a contract:

  • Price: Deciding how much you can pay per month for internet is recommended before choosing a plan and provider.
  • Speed: Depending on your internet usage needs, you may require faster or slower speeds. Consider your household size, frequent internet activities, and how many devices will be connected at once.
  • Data Caps: Your internet usage needs will also determine whether data caps or unlimited data is suitable for you.
  • Contracts: Most internet providers in Miami require a contract, but not all do. Are you more comfortable going month-to-month with a provider, or would you prefer the reassurance of a contract with its guaranteed price?

What do I need to keep in mind when moving to Miami?

Miami has become one of the most attractive locations for professionals in the U.S. With businesses expanding rapidly and sectors such as IT/software, hospitality, healthcare, education, and creative services on the rise, Miami is growing faster than almost anywhere else in the country. If you are among the many prospective residents who would like to move to the tropical metropolis, here are some important broadband factors to keep in mind when signing up for internet service.

Numerous internet providers in Miami are available, but there is no guarantee that your current provider services your new residence. Transferring internet service is sometimes possible, but it depends on the provider’s availability in your new area. Be sure to check whether you can transfer your current plan and provider, or if you’ll have to start anew.

If it turns out that you do have to start fresh with a new plan and provider, be prepared to pay early termination fees (ETF). These are quite common with most internet contracts, and in Miami they can cost anywhere between $0-400.

The majority of internet providers in Miami require contracts ranging from 0-2 years. Contract-free options are available with providers like AT&T Internet and XFINITY from Comcast. Before committing to a provider, it is always recommended that you check the specifics of each provider’s plans before signing up.

Installation Fees in Miami

When signing up for new internet service, installation fees are inevitable. Typically, internet providers will give you the option for self-installation, which is cheaper, or professional installation. In the event that professional installation is required, these fees can range anywhere between $0 to $99 in Miami. If you sign up for a bundle, these installation fees may be waived.

How much data do you need for your home or business internet in Miami?

How much internet you’ll need for your business or residence in Miami depends on your actual usage. If you are a frequent internet user—heavy streaming, serious gaming, and uploading or downloading large files—a more robust internet connection with no data cap is ideal. Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and AT&T Fiber offer plans with no data caps, while others like AT&T Internet provide plans with a 1 TB data cap.

What are the most-connected neighborhoods in Miami?

The areas slightly south of Downtown Miami, in Spring Gardens, and in between Little Havana and Coconut Grove are the most connected neighborhoods in Miami with 4-5 internet providers available. However, some areas in Miami only have 1-2 providers available. AT&T Internet and XFINITY from Comcast are the two dominant providers by coverage area throughout Miami.
