Internet Access in Polk City, Florida

Data on this page is calculated from the FCC's bi-annual broadband coverage filings. We also use direct reporting from providers to further validate the information, down to the census block or lit address level. Plane and pricing data is aggregated manually by our market research team. BroadbandNow has analyzed and verified 372 broadband deals in Polk City since 2014. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 142 records as of 2021. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

Frontier Communications provides an second choice to the primary providers. They offer 83 percent coverage and a maximum speed of 12 Mbps. There are also 5 providers in the area offering enterprise-level technologies such as SD-WAN. We list all providers with business packages online, but keep in mind that consumer-focused companies might have unlisted business packages as well.

Viasat Internet has the largest coverage area for Polk City residents. The provider is available to virtually one hundred percent of Polk City. HughesNet is the most common second choice, with coverage in virtually one hundred percent of Polk City with predominantly Satellite service. HughesNet's strongest package in Polk City is 25 Mbps.

Looking at network technology offered Polk City, the most widespread wired Internet technology options are Cable and DSL, with 62.61% and 83.48% respectively. TV corporations are where customers look for cable home Internet service, thanks to the fact that they can use their existing TV wires — which already connect to most homes — to connect customers to Internet service. Polk City-area customers of cable providers like Spectrum overwhelmingly select it thanks to the combination of low prices for decent speeds. (At least, compared to DSL.) Phone providers are the main source for DSL Internet service, which makes technical sense because DSL transmits digital information via telephone lines. As copper wires go, the twisted copper bundle construction of telephone wires has slightly less bandwidth compared to more modern techs like cable and significantly less than fiber.

Data Cap Issues in Polk City

Data collected by our market researchers shows that common ISPs currently place some sort of limit on data use on home broadband packages. Data caps are controversial because customers view caps as a strategy for limiting "cord cutting", while providers explain that they are a necessary strategy as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the culprit is over-the-top streaming, which can eat up 1–7GB per hour.
