The information listed here is sourced via FCC coverage reports, and is confirmed with private data sources to provide more detailed resources than can be accessed through the FCC directly. Speed and pricing data is generated by our research and analysis team, who gather thousands of plans every year. We've catalogued 505 Sanford Internet plans from 2014–present, with 44 Internet packages currently available in the area.
When we're looking at network technologies with significant infrastructure already built around the Sanford area, the most common physical wire broadband Internet tech options are Cable (near one hundred percent coverage) and DSL (85.99 percent coverage). Cable Internet is sold by residential television operators, leveraging preexisting coaxial cable networks. Cable often makes sense for local residents due to the strong mix of speed and value. DSL is transmitted over telephone wires on utility poles, and is sold by companies like EarthLink that have existing phone networks. Compared to other copper cables, the twisted and bundled copper construction of phone lines provides slightly less bandwidth than newer wire types such as cable and several times less than fiber.
Outside of the Internet options detailed above, Spectrum is another option to consider. They have wired broadband in virtually one hundred percent of the Sanford area.

Data Cap Issues in Sanford
Data from our researchers suggests that many of the popular providers in Sanford currently use data caps for their home Internet connections. Data caps are disliked because customers see them as a tactic for limiting "cord cutting", while providers maintain they are a necessary strategy for managing network congestion. Either way, the culprit is streaming services, which easily consumes anywhere from 1–7GB/hr.
