Hi,
I'm moving to Gainesville and need to know about internet providers there. I'm going to be in a condo, not an apartment with proprietary service. Someone said that they think Cox Cable services the area, but I've hard horrible things about them. Is there any alternative to Cox?

It would help if you mentioned the name of the community you plan to live at. I doubt there is a single cable provider that covers the entire city.

COX is the most popular internet provider in Gainesville. I used that for the 6 years that I lived there as a college student. It's true, it's not the best, but it was decent.

Was wondering the same thing for the Morriston area. Some folks say Brighthouse is the best.

To the best if my knowledge, any landline phone company in your service area can also provide internet at the home. No need to rely on the cable companies any longer.

Dial-up internet ??? I didn't think it still existed in this modern day and age. I am referring to high speed internet through the landline phone company.

Dantask, please tell me AT&T is not my only option, they are horrible in Miami, my Mom has had nothing but trouble. We would be most interested in a cable bundle.

An alternative option would be to buy a wireless "aircard" from Verizon/At&t/Sprint/T-mobile which connects to the celllar network for internet. I know Verizon does have coverage there, but cannot speak with any experience with the other cellular carriers.

I have never used At&t's bundle services in this area, only their cellular service with a good experience.

Hope that helps.

Thanks. I don't want to be fenced into a monopoly there. Here we only have one choice for phone/internet. I will never go back to satellite internet.
