The State of Broadband

California is the 13th most well-connected state in the U.S. overall. Generally, southern California has more infrastructure than the northern part of the state. The state-wide average download speed currently at 92.6 Mbps.

The Digital Divide

In California, there are 1.5 million residents who have access to only one wired provider, while just under 889,000 residents don't have any wired internet providers available where they live at all. Fortunately, about 28 million of Californians have access to a standalone broadband internet plan under $60 per month as of 2019, which is nearly 20% higher than national averages.

Best-Connected Cities

Manhattan Beach boasts 100% resident access to multiple broadband-level internet options, including at least one fiber option. While Fullerton is the most connected larger city, enjoying the same widespread coverage and choice in technology. Other major cities in California like Los Angeles and San Francisco are similar.

Governmental Initiatives

Lawmakers in the state established the California Broadband Council (CBC) in 2010 in an effort to create an easier way for state agencies to work together to improve broadband access to residents. Some initiatives have received $60 million, toward grants aimed at improving digital literacy, educating local leaders, and supporting technology adoption in communities across the state.
