Hi bees! LONG time no post for me. Hubby and I are moving from Indiana to Orlando (Metro West area) and I’m trying to find good internet for our rental house – with no luck! I am looking at 24 mbps – ish. I called AT&T u-verse but they can only do up to 18 mbps in our area and won’t let us provide our own modem/router (they charge $100 for equiptment and $149 to insall, so we’d rather spend that money on our own router and modem to keep.)
Brighthouse jumps from 20 mbps to 40 mbps are are so, so pricey per month.
Anyone hav internet in the area that they LOVE? Working from home I need good internet but we also do a lot of streaming since we won’t have cable. All suggestions welcome!! AND- any dog lovers in the area? Hopefully I will make some new friends too! 😀

When I lived in Orlando (moving back in 2 months!!!) we had Brighthouse, but agree SO EXPENSIVE! I work from home as well so definitely need reliable internet service (I have a dog too, let’s be friends!)
Where I currently live (Utah) we have Dish. This is the first time we’ve ever had Dish because I’ve been skeptical about quality of signal etc, but it’s actually pretty good and prices are way better than Brighthouse. Of course you’d have to see if your apt allows you to have a Dish.

We only left FL about a year ago and did 6 months in Chicago and then the past 4 months in Utah due to FI’s job changes. It’s been really hard to make friends in Utah, especially since I work virtually. My only real socialization here is when I go to the gym, the grocery store or the hair salon hahaha. We dont’ really fit into the mold here in UT, just my Fiance and I “living in sin” 🙂
