Choosing an Affordable High-Speed Internet Provider

Choosing an affordable high-speed Internet provider requires a number of decisions and calculations.  Not all Internet Service Providers are available in all regions of California.  In fact, most areas are covered by only a few providers.  The information below is a step-by-step guide to finding affordable offers.


STEP 1: Go go to EveryoneOn.orgAllConnect.comMobile Citizen, and—please check all four!—Put in your home address and/or zip code.

STEP 2: Determine which Internet Service Provider serves your location and review the offers in your area to compare.

STEP 3: Determine your data usage. Every household uses the Internet differently. If you only send emails and do basic research online, you will need a low data usage plan.  If you plan to stream movies, play video games, or have multiple people using multiple devices simultaneously, you will need a higher data usage plan.
