Default Good Prices on Internet Service in Fairhope or Baldwin County?

We are moving to Fairhope in a couple weeks.
In Arkansas, we have Cox Cable internet service that we can watch Netflix, Youtube, etc on with no issues for $19.99/ month, but Cox is not available in the area.
I called Mediacom (found online), but their LOWEST service was quoted at $55/month!

Those in Fairhope or Baldwin County - what internet do you use?
Any deals?

Thanks, I just checked Century Link (online) based on 36532 zip code, and the following screen is "Sorry, CenturyLink service is not available at this time"?

Forgot to mention that we do not use a home phone for anything, only cell phones. So, if a land line has to be added that would be an additional cost on top of the high-speed internet price which is why we liked using Cox Cable Modem Internet (internet only, no phone service required).

We have ATT Uverse, and it works great, as you do not lose reception when it rains hard. If you have ATT cell, and can combine them all, it comes out great. The DSL, cell, phone, ect...and price is pretty decent.

Welcome to Fairhope! It's a great town.

That is interesting and I`m sure that they serve that area. I just typed in the Zip Code for Semmes,Al where Century Link has a sizable customer base and it said the same thing I don`t know what is up with that...I do know that most neighborhoods are already built with a land line but if the case was different I don`t think they charge you if they have to add a land line.


Cox is in Mobile county as well.AT&T provides great and reasonable services...Try Wild Blue Satellite internet also.

I have prob the package mediacom quoted you. Basic cable and internet. They would not give internet alone back when I signed up. Last time I checked with Century link, you had to have phone service with them in order to get internet, which ended up being around $70 total.

Thanks everyone!
AT&T seems to be the best option so far and their service is available at this home.
It looks to cost 50% more than what I currently pay and is not even as fast..........oh well........
