How to get internet and television?

Asked by Dave, Fort Myers, FL Sat Feb 14, 2009

We just bought our vacation home in Cape Coral and are preparing to get it livable. We will be in our Cape Coral home only 6 to 8 weeks a year.

Our vacation home in Cape Coral does have a satellite dish already. Do I need to subscribe to any company to get the television running or is buying a tv (and decoder) enough to get the silver screen up and running?

What about internet. I do not need a telephone line, internet only is ok. Which company would be the best choice for me?

You should check out the rates for Comcast and Verizon .They sometimes offer introductory prices . Sometimes if you have cable and internet the telephone service does not cost extra.

Thank you all for your replies. Does anyone of you know if the high speed internet from Verizon is available in Cape Coral? It seems to be the most cost efficient option but I am unable to verify any Cape Coral address is being serviced (see link)

Hi Dave,

Welcome to Southwest Florida.......

Probably the two largest providers are Comcast and Verizon. We suggest contacting them for their range of services and rates. They will both be able to provide you with television and internet service.

Good luck with your new home.
