Our top 3 ISP choices in Four Corners, FL

CenturyLink is our #1 pick for internet in Four corners, but only if you can get its fiber service. If all you can get is CenturyLink DSL—or no CenturyLink at all—we recommend Spectrum or Xfinity.

#1: CenturyLink fiber internet

Centurylink fiber has decent availability in Four Corners, especially in the northern part of the city. It’s fast, inexpensive, and reliable. You’ll have to sign a contract if you want unlimited data, and customer service is just okay. But it’s still the best option in Four Corners.

#2: Spectrum internet

Spectrum is more widely available than both CenturyLink and Xfinity. It’s not as good as either, but you’re more likely to find it throughout the city. You’ll get plenty of plan options up to 1 gig in speed at a decent price. But you’ll have to deal with hidden fees, price hikes, and poor customer service. Spectrum also has a reputation for being less reliable than some other cable internet companies.

#3: Xfinity internet

Xfinity covers most of the southern parts of Four Corners with its cable internet service. It’s a lot more reliable than Spectrum at around the same price, but you’ll deal with similar hidden fees, contracts, and customer service issues—though Xfinity is improving its customer service over time.

All internet providers in Four Corners

Beyond our top picks, Four Corners has seven more internet providers. BlueStream offers fiber plans near Davenport Creek Swamp, but few people can get it. Frontier offers both fiber and DSL in the area, and if we were to pick a fourth place provider, Frontier fiber would be it. It’s also one of our top DSL providers nationally, but almost any fiber or cable service will offer a better value and higher speeds.

Two fixed wireless providers are available in Four Corner—T-Mobile and Verizon. T-Mobile is far more available and offers higher speeds. Both companies give deep discounts when you bundle internet with a cell phone plan though, so either could still be worth it if you’re on a strict budget.

Finally, three satellite companies offer service nearly everywhere in Four Corners, but we don’t recommend any of them unless they’re all you can get. Satellite is almost always slower, less reliable, and more expensive than other kinds of internet. HughesNet and Visasat offer immediate service, while Starlink has a waitlist for this region.

Fastest internet providers in Four Corners

The fastest internet in Four Corners is Xfinity’s 1,200 Mbps plan, but not everyone can get it. CenturyLink has a 940 Mbps plan with matching upload speeds, and Spectrum has a 1,000 Mbps plan with 100 Mbps upload speeds.

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. Learn how much speed your household needs in our guide to internet speed.

Cheapest internet providers in Four Corners

Xfinity has the cheapest plan in the area, delivering 50 Mbps for around $20 per month. For a few dollars more, you can get 200 Mbps from CenturyLink, which is a way better value. Finally, T-Mobile cell phone customers can get a steep discount when you bundle in internet, so it’s possible this is your cheapest option.

Internet options in nearby cities

Four Corners is one of the most rural areas near Orlando, but it has a surprisingly solid set of internet choices anyway. Most nearby communities have better access to 1 gig speeds, but availability of 250 Mbps plans is about the same. (1)

Because so many providers serve Four Corners, few other communities have access to a company that Four Corners doesn’t. The exception is Orlando Telephone Company, which is a small local provider that serves a small portion of Kissimmee and Ocoee.

What Four Corners residents are saying on Reddit

The locals seem to generally like CenturyLink fiber service the best. That said, some residents have experienced frequent dropped signals, possibly due to the equipment CenturyLink itself provides. Using your own router helps, but even when it doesn’t, some residents plan to keep the service because it’s so inexpensive.

Spectrum also seems to be a common choice in the area, but customers are less happy about it. They cite Spectrum’s frequent price hikes and lack of reliability. Some people have switched to T-Mobile, but signal quality can be spotty depending on where you live.

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.

Most helpful response

AT&T fiber.

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.

Anyone in the area have Quantum Fiber/Century Link Fiber?

I just got Quantum Fiber installed a couple days ago, it’s really fast. The only problem is my Internet drops at least once to twice a day, whereas with spectrum I could go months without it dropping. Is anyone else having the same issues? Is this just a century link thing that I have to get used to?

Most helpful response

I now have Quantum fiber as it was cheaper and faster speeds than spectrum in my area. The router they provide is not the greatest quality so I constantly had connection issues throughout the house so I had to buy a mesh system to fix this issue and never had any drops in connection ever since.

Internet news and infrastructure in Four Corners, FL

Internet infrastructure in Four Corners is handled by four different counties, each of which does at least a decent job of providing broadband coverage. However, its more rural areas, like those near Lake Louisa State Park, Withlacoochee State Forest, and Hilochee Wildlife Management Area, have spotty coverage.

Orange county has a deal with Spectrum to provide every residence with a broadband connection by 2024. (2) Polk County has funding to expand its fiber network, but Four Corners doesn’t seem to be part of that initiative. (3)

In Four Corners, FL, 94% of households can get 100 Mbps, 93% can get 250 Mbps, and 22% can get 1 Gbps.

Frequently asked internet questions in Four Corners

Xfinity is slightly better, but Spectrum has more availability in Four Corners. Spectrum has cheaper equipment and installation, but Xfinity offers more speed for the money and better reliability. Xfinity is also improving its customer service, leaving Spectrum behind in that area too.

If you can get Xfinity where you live in Four Corners, go with that. If you can't, Spectrum isn’t too far behind in overall quality, so it’s a good alternative. Compare them both.

Most rural areas have three internet types: DSL, fixed wireless, and satellite, and you can find all three in most rural areas in Florida. DSL is usually slow and expensive, but reliable. Fixed wireless is less reliable and has inconsistent speeds but is inexpensive. Satellite is the worst of all worlds because it’s expensive, slow, and unreliable. However, it has the most availability.

In rural Four Corners, you can get all of these. Your fastest option is probably T-Mobile, which delivers an average of 182 Mbps. It may also be your cheapest option if you already have T-Mobile cell service. If you don’t get a great signal though, try Verizon instead.

Yes, AT&T has fiber in Florida—up to 5 gig speeds in some places. But it’s much less common than AT&T’s DSL service, which is much slower and offers less value. AT&T is phasing out its DSL service as it builds more fiber infrastructure, but it will be a while before that process is complete.

In Four Corners, very little AT&T is available. You’re more likely to find its DSL service, and even that’s mostly near Walt Disney Resort. The closest AT&T fiber is on the other side of the resort, closer to Orlando proper. Learn about fiber vs. DSL.
