Our top 3 ISP choices in Deltona, FL

The top providers in Deltona are AT&T fiber, Spectrum, and CenturyLink fiber.

#1: AT&T fiber internet

AT&T fiber is fast, reasonably priced, and doesn’t come with a contract, data cap, or a bunch of hidden fees. It’s our pick for best fiber internet provider and best internet provider overall—but only based on its fiber service. AT&T is phasing out its DSL service as it builds more fiber infrastructure. In Deltona, AT&T is most available near Interstate 4, but further east, you may have access to only DSL.

#2: Spectrum internet

Spectrum fiber is less available than AT&T fiber in Deltona, but its cable service is available to nearly all residents. You can get up to 1 gig of speed at a reasonable price, but you’ll have to sign a contract and deal with Spectrum’s less-than-stellar customer service. Still, Spectrum is available in nearly all households in Deltona, so it’s easy to get.

#3: CenturyLink fiber internet

CenturyLink fiber (Quantum Fiber) is a great deal, but its availability in Deltona is lower than Spectrum’s. If you live in northern Deltona near Florida Hospital Fish Memorial or Evans Lake, you might have CenturyLink’s fiber service. Its DSL service is more widely available, but you’ll get snail-slow speeds.

All internet providers in Deltona

In addition to AT&T, Spectrum, and CenturyLink, Deltona residents have access to two fixed wireless internet providers. T-Mobile is available to nearly all residents, while around 25% of residents will be able to get Verizon fixed wireless. However, it’s a good thing neither requires a contract, because knowing whether you’ll get a good signal at your home is nearly impossible until you try it out. Both companies offer steep discounts to existing cell phone customers, so this could be your cheapest option.

Deltona locals also have access to two satellite companies—Viasat and HughesNet—but we don’t generally recommend them unless they’re your only option. Satellite is notoriously slow, unreliable, and expensive. Starlink, a third satellite internet provider, is currently waitlisting new customers in Deltona with no indication of when you’ll be able to get service.

Fastest internet providers in Deltona

AT&T Fiber has the fastest internet in Deltona at a blazing 5 gigs. Almost no one needs anything close to that speed, but it’s available. Spectrum offers up to 1 gig, and CenturyLink fiber gets up to 940 Mbps— both of which are plenty for nearly all households.

How much speed do you need?

When choosing an internet plan, you want to keep all of your activities running smoothly without paying extra for speeds you don't need. At the bare minimum, you need 25 Mbps to do light browsing on one or two devices. Most households with multiple people and multiple devices will want to look for speeds in the 100–500 Mbps range.

Cheapest internet providers in Deltona

If you’re already a mobile phone customer of T-Mobile or Verizon, then their existing-customer discounts could be your cheapest internet option in Deltona. Otherwise, Spectrum’s slowest plans may be your best bet.

Internet options in nearby cities

Outside Deltona’s city limits, Spectrum still has a ton of availability. Satellite providers and fixed wireless provider T-Mobile are also widely available in this part of Florida. Xfinity is available in Alafaya and Four Corners, and a few cities in the area have access to small, local internet providers.

Your best bet for fiber internet outside Deltona will be AT&T and CenturyLink. Many of Deltona’s neighbors have better fiber internet availability.To the northeast, Daytona Beach has better fiber coverage than most cities in the area, and Orlando to the southwest has some decent fiber availability too. However, across Lake Monroe in Sanford, Fiber is more limited.

What Deltona residents are saying on Reddit

Most AT&T fiber customers in the area love their service and encourage others to switch if they can. Residents who report that they’ve requested fiber service where it’s not yet available say they were offered a slow, expensive DSL plan instead. So it looks like some new customers might be able to get AT&T DSL, but people agree that Spectrum is better in this case.

Most people don’t like Spectrum very much, and gamers report latency issues that make playing nearly impossible sometimes. It’s driving residents to seek alternatives, like T-Mobile—with mixed results.

I currently have spectrum, but I’ve been having issues with connectivity lately. I also pay about $80 a month just for internet (I use my own equip). Any suggestions on superior service or equal service for cheaper in the area? I’m located South East downtown, and would love fiber access.

AT&T fiber.

AT&T vs Spectrum

I currently pay around $50 a month for spectrum and get decent speeds but lately my ping has been all over the place. I stream rocket league and this causes issues both with playing and the stream.

Does anyone have experience with AT&T fiber while streaming/playing a game like rocket league where ping is really noticeable? How often do you get random ping/lag spikes?

Spectrum recently has been awful with nearly everyday having ping fluctuating from a nice 40 up to 300+ every couple of minutes.

I've had it for years and it's been reliable and speedy. Much better in comparison to cable.

Do you have T-mobile internet?

If so do you like it? In the Altamonte Springs area and thinking of switching to it.

Most helpful response

So I'm a big T-Mobile fan. I tried it but it didn't work out but not for reasons most people think. I'm a very technical person, so I figured out what happened.

If I stand on my roof, I can see the huge 5G T-Mobile cell tower, it's not that far away... 1.2 miles. However, I got a disappointing 16 Mbs inside my house. When I put my new Gateway (supplied modem/router) in my car on an inverter and drove to across the street from the tower, I could get speeds of over 400 Mbs down and 100 Mbs up. It would even fluctuate up to 500/150.

Lots of testing from further and further distances until I got home. Long story short - I live in a Faraday Cage. That's a wire cage that blocks wireless signals.

My house has stucco siding, which is basically chicken-wire with cement slathered over it. I also have windows that are hurricane resistant. They have a wire-mesh film on them to keep from shattering. Outside on my back porch, I can obtain speeds of 250/30. But inside my house - 16/5.

I called and asked about an external antenna option and they were unwilling to provide one even though I could easily modify my Gateway without any drilling, soldering or damage. I was unwilling to spend the $250 needed, plus drilling a hole in my house, to make their equipment work. So I returned it.

Internet news and infrastructure in Deltona, FL

Most Deltonans have access to broadband internet, but not all. Volusia County has partnered with Spectrum in a $19.6 million project to bring broadband internet to more than 3,700 residents, including some throughout Deltona.(1) Spectrum promises speeds of at least 100 Mbps.

Fiber has some room to grow in Deltona too, but cable and DSL infrastructure each reach around 50% of households. You can also get satellite and fixed wireless widely, but these options are less reliable than other types of internet.

In Alabaster, AL, 97% of households can get 100 Mbps, 89% can get 250 Mbps, and 50% can get 1 Gbps.

Frequently asked internet questions in Deltona

The fastest speed available in Florida is 6 gigs from Xfinity. It’s available in some places where Xfinity fiber is available, but not all.

However, even if 5 gig speeds are available to you, you probably don’t need them. You can’t get a full 5 gigs with most routers and modems on the market. And unless you plan to host half the city of Deltona for a LAN party, you won’t get even close to using all that speed. Stick with a 1 gig plan or lower and save yourself a ton of cash instead.

Rural residents are most likely to have access to DSL, fixed mobile, and satellite providers. In rural Deltona, your best options will be T-Mobile, Verizon, and CenturyLink DSL.

T-Mobile and Verizon are fixed wireless internet, which means they can reach faster speeds than DSL, but they’re way less reliable. How good the service will be depends on exactly where you live, where you place your router, and even what the weather is doing today. If reliability is more important than speed or cost, CenturyLink DSL could be a better option.

Deltona residents should expect to pay anywhere from $30 for less than 50 Mbps with Spectrum, all the way up to $80 for 1 gig from AT&T. You can get up to 5 gigs from AT&T for $180, but most people don’t need that speed, so you’d be throwing away $100 each month.

Additionally, some low-income households qualify for free internet through the Affordable Connectivity Program.

Cable is just one kind of internet available in Deltona. There’s also fiber, DSL, fixed wireless, and satellite. FIber is hard to get unless your house is already wired for it. DSL uses the same cables a phone jack does, so your home is likely already wired.

Satellite is available nearly everywhere, but you’ll need to mount a satellite dish on your roof. If that’s against your HOA or apartment complex rules, don’t risk it. Try fixed wireless instead, which doesn’t require any wires to your home. However, signal can be spotty depending on where you live.
