First, make sure you check with your apartment community to make sure they don't offer free internet or cable before you go and pay for it. If they don't offer cable, research the local providers to find a deal you like. Comcast is pretty popular in Jacksonville, but some residents use satellites providers. It usually takes three or four days to get cable turned on, and you can expect to be given a four to five hour window when they will show up.
