Internet Access in Tampa, Florida

3-4 Internet providers are available for the average Tampa resident. This is a high amount of competition in comparison to other communities. Competition is correlated with more affordable pricing.

The plans listed above are manually collected by our research staff.

Spectrum and Frontier Communications can also provide coverage in Tampa, often competing for the same customers.

Coverage from the two most common companies, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As residents might expect, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is common.

Overall, Tampa's Internet situation follows a similar pattern to other Florida cities and towns: strong access to bundled cable and DSL, with the caveat that the majority of houses are stuck with one company for setting up either type of Internet service. The cable/DSL pattern is normal because Internet companies used to be TV and phone corporations. So, they use these existing networks for delivering their broadband Internet services. Fiber is growing as a third option. While some "Fiber" services aren't actually true "Fiber to the Home" connections, 96.52 percent of the population has coverage by fiber Internet that reaches as far as a box near the property line.

Internet Provider Competition Map For Tampa

Tampa is the 15th most connected city in Florida ahead of Brandon, Riverview, Lutz, Gibsonton, and Apollo Beach.

The “Connected” metric is a citywide average based on FCC data showing the density of broadband options at the census block level.

Approximately 4,000 people in Hillsborough County don't have access to any wired internet.

This statistic is drawn from the population in census blocks not served by at least one wired broadband provider.

Fiber Availability: 97% of people living in Tampa have residential fiber service available to them.

Fiber coverage data is sourced from FCC Form 477 filings and cross-validated through BroadbandNow with private datasets and direct provider reporting.

Approximately 98% of Tampa residents are serviced by multiple wired providers.

This coverage statistic is based on a mix of FCC and private provider reporting in the past two quarters.

As of this month, 33612 is the zip code with the fastest average download speed in Tampa.

Zip-based speed averages are calculated from M-Labs consumer speed tests run by IP addresses in the area.

In Hillsborough County, approximately 6,000 people do not have access to 25 Mbps wired broadband.

25 Mbps download and 3 Mbps upload is the minimum speed for an Internet connection to be classified as “Broadband” by the FCC.

Internet Access for Education in Tampa

University Of South Florida-Main Campus and The University Of Tampa are the biggest universities in Tampa. For the 49,621 combined students living in the area, strong internet access is a must for obtaining online course materials and viewing research. University Of South Florida-Main Campus residential buildings have 1-2 providers servicing the area on average, while The University Of Tampa has nearer to 1. Both local colleges are showing an average documented speed of 116.01 Mbps. This stat is based on 863 aggregated speed test data originating surrounding campus buildings. FCC and US Government reports regularly cite the need to better internet service access for college and high school attendees.

Data Cap Issues Around Tampa

Data collected by our market researchers suggests that common providers in the area place some sort of limit on streaming on residential Internet packages. Data caps are disliked since consumers see them as a strategy to discourage streaming services, while providers insist caps are a necessary tool as they struggle to manage network congestion. In either case, the problem is video streaming, which easily uses anywhere from 1–7GB per hour.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Tampa

Good Technician, Benny

Solved my problem, good job

Awesome customer service

I made a call because of my bill. Customer service rep in North Carolina went over and beyond the call. It took less than 5 minutes to get a credit on the account and he was so sweet and professional. You normally don't receive this kind of customer service with Spectrum but today I did. Thanks, you made a difference.

Free modem

I'm a new customer with Spectrum and I signed a contract that promised a free modem. Was happy with the tech's installation. He was very professional. The gripe I have is that I assumed the free modem would be new and not one that looks to have seen better days. I hope customer service will be understanding and helpful when the modem crashes.

Decent Internet for poorly covered areas

Decent Internet with surprisingly fast download speeds albeit with high latencies. Pages and streaming very slow to get started but once they start, good speed is held. Upload speeds good enough, though slow. Due to high latency, VPN usage is almost useless.

consistent reliable service
