Local Utility Services

Comcast Cable: The country's largest provider of broadband: cable, high speed internet and phone services. Many of the larger condominium communities have negotiated discounted rates and bundled services with Comcast, so be sure to first contact the association management offices for that information. These negotiated rates tend to be very attractive and most are included or partially included in the maintenance fees already being charged by the association. Details on Comcast products and services can be viewed on their website, click on their link above. Phone: (800) 266-2278.

Florida Power and Light: Florida Power and Light Company is the largest electric utility in Florida and one of the largest rate-regulated utilities in the United States. While most condominiums include water, sewer and garbage in their maintenance fees, electric is almost always the resposibility of each individual owner. Call in advance to setup your account to start on your day of closing, so there is no gap in service. No one wants to have to deal with a smelly refrigerator because it was left closed with the power off. Phone: (800) 226-3545.
