Florida ISP Recommendation - pfSense friendly?

hey all, looks like i'm moving to FL in the near future for work.
Haven't decided exactly where yet, but looking at the Ft Lauderdale area.
Currently have 150/10 with Cox. It's alright, speeds fluctuate quite a bit.
I'm honestly planning on downgrading the speed. I very rarely find anything that maxes out the connection for our household, and those things are never time critical.
I've also got pfSense doing some great work with dummynet & fq_codel now so really not worried at all about lower bandwidths.
Probably looking at a 50Mbps plan?
Any recommendations that are:
Not going to force me to use their own equipment (already own stuff)
Cable Modem only
No weird configs that will mess with a pfSense config - I really just want to plug my router in at the new place, change a setting or 2 for limiters and move on.
Not just a total sh*tshow as far as ISP's go? i.e., not constantly throttling connections, reliable service, etc.
very consistent bandwidth (Cox I have now is subscribed at 150 but often dips down 120 even to 100 = annoying).
Cheap per Mbps
Respectable Upload speed - but doesn't need to be anything special.
