What is the best internet provider in Port St. Lucie?

CNET recommends Xfinity as the best internet service provider for most Port St. Lucie households. Xfinity's wide coverage map and competitive prices for home broadband make it a reliable and affordable option in this coastal Florida city. However, if you're hunting for other types of connectivity, such as fiber internet or fixed wireless, AT&T Fiber and T-Mobile Home Internet are also available in different parts of the city.

We've also found the lowest-priced and speediest service in Port St. Lucie. Xfinity offers the cheapest plans: $20 per month for 150 megabits per second and $35 for 300Mbps. Watch out for a price hike in the second year of service. For those needing speed, consider AT&T Fiber for a lightning-fast connection. AT&T Fiber offers 2- and 5-gigabit plans, costing $150 and $250 monthly, respectively, with no data caps.

Other available internet providers in Port St. Lucie

  • Blue Stream Fiber: This Florida-based internet provider offers fiber-optic coverage to only 1% of residents in Port St. Lucie, per the latest data from the FCC. While coverage is very limited for most of the city, residents on the border near Portofino At Jensen Beach may find coverage. That is also the case for certain residents south of the city near South West Paar Drive and South West Becker Road. If available at your address, plans come with symmetrical speeds ranging from 200Mbps to 2,000Mbps. Standard service costs $64 monthly and features no contracts, data caps or monthly equipment fees. 
  • Satellite internet: If you're out of luck finding fixed wireless and fiber coverage in the city, satellite connections might be your best option. With Hughesnet, Viasat and Starlink, coverage is pretty consistent everywhere. However, the slow speeds and the steep monthly rates deter many people from this connection type, often our last recommendation. Hughesnet plans require a two-year contract, which isn't the case with Starlink and Viasat. Starlink is the fastest ISP of the three, but for standard service, you're looking at $120 monthly and an upfront cost of almost $600 for equipment. 

Cheap internet options in Port St. Lucie

The average starting monthly price in Port St. Lucie is around $46. The cheapest internet offering belongs to Xfinity's $20-a-month 150Mbps plan.

For example, Verizon and T-Mobile both offer discounts to eligible mobile customers.

What’s a good internet speed?

Most internet connection plans can now handle basic productivity and communication tasks. If you're looking for an internet plan that can accommodate videoconferencing, streaming video or gaming, you'll have a better experience with a more robust connection. Here's an overview of the recommended minimum download speeds for various applications, according to the Federal Communications Commission. Note that these are only guidelines -- and that internet speed, service and performance vary by connection type, provider and address.

For more information, refer to our guide on how much internet speed you really need.

  • 0 to 5Mbps allows you to tackle the basics -- browsing the internet, sending and receiving email, streaming low-quality video.
  • 5 to 40Mbps gives you higher-quality video streaming and videoconferencing.
  • 40 to 100Mbps should give one user sufficient bandwidth to satisfy the demands of modern telecommuting, video streaming and online gaming. 
  • 100 to 500Mbps allows one to two users to simultaneously engage in high-bandwidth activities like videoconferencing, streaming and gaming. 
  • 500 to 1,000Mbps allows three or more users to engage in high-bandwidth activities at the same time.

How CNET chose the best internet providers in Port St. Lucie

Internet service providers are numerous and regional. Unlike the latest smartphone, laptop, router or kitchen tool, it’s impractical to personally test every ISP in a given city. So what’s our approach? We start by researching the pricing, availability and speed information, drawing on our own historical ISP data, the provider sites and mapping information from FCC.gov.

But it doesn’t end there. We go to the FCC’s website to check our data and ensure we consider every ISP that provides service in an area. We also input local addresses on provider websites to find specific options for residents. We look at sources, including the American Customer Satisfaction Index and J.D. Power, to evaluate how happy customers are with an ISP’s service. ISP plans and prices are subject to frequent changes; all information provided is accurate as of publication.

Once we have this localized information, we ask three main questions:

  1. Does the provider offer access to reasonably fast internet speeds?
  2. Do customers get decent value for what they’re paying?
  3. Are customers happy with their service?

While the answers to those questions are often layered and complex, the providers that come closest to “yes” on all three are the ones we recommend. When selecting the cheapest internet service, we look for the plans with the lowest monthly fee, though we also factor in things like price increases, equipment fees and contracts. Choosing the fastest internet service is relatively straightforward. We look at advertised upload and download speeds and also consider real-world speed data from sources like Ookla and FCC reports.

What's the final word on internet providers in Port St. Lucie?

Some of your broadband options could be limited depending on where you are in the city. Xfinity's cable internet service has the widest coverage in the area, but as we say here at CNET, fiber is the gold standard of all the connection types. AT&T's fiber-optic connection is available to about one in four households but offers symmetrical speeds that might just be what your home requires.
