Probably the best way to find out about local internet providers is to search internet service providers by zip code. That’s what I found out when I was moving. It can be really difficult to sift through all the advertising hype. Many providers may have service in your state or city, but not all the same plans throughout the entire service area. So searching by zip code helped me to find out precisely what was available to me.
I was looking first to see if I could duplicate the internet service I now have. I love ATT Uverse, because it is unmatched for speed and quality. I really need speed, since we have HDTV, and use the internet for videos, music, webcam, and secure internet transactions with banking and shopping. I do a lot of my work online too, and want my connection to my site to be secure.
Unfortunately Uverse was not available at my new address. Verizon FiOS was available, as well as cable internet and DSL. I was very interested in FiOS because I wanted to continue to have a fiber optic connection, since it really makes a difference for me with how our family uses the internet. I like having a distortion free connection, and linking my phone, internet, and high definition TV.
Interestingly, FiOS was not available yet in all areas of the county we moved to, but only in some parts. So searching by zip code was really important, to pinpoint where the service would be. It was a relief to find that at least one major internet service provider was available.
Searching for internet service providers in my area was pretty easy once I found a website that had the right search engine, so that I could search by zip code. I was able to view available services side by side, make comparisons of speed and cost, and decide what was best for me and for my family. I prefer the bundle price, since this is the best deal by far for what I need.
When you are relocating, do your search for your new internet service provider online first. You will find who is available, and you will also find the best deals for signing up online. You may also find incentives to stay with your current company if they are available. The search will give you an idea of what to expect in your new home as far as all your media is concerned. Doing all the planning up front, you won’t have to worry about it when you are in the middle of moving.
