Internet Access in Alta, California

Alta's Internet availability information on this page is derived from FCC data. Then, we ensure the data is verifiable against private records. We've analyzed 1,833 rows of FCC and privatized data catalogues on broadband availability within Alta. We've hand-sourced pricing info and terms for 171 Internet deals in Alta and the surrounding area. There is currently limited speed test data on the Alta area. We've only seen 71 records in the last 12 months. For this reason you should note official speeds listed above for local companies such as HughesNet.

Coverage from the two biggest companies, Viasat Internet and HughesNet, as a rule, will overlap. As residents might expect, the decision between Viasat and HughesNet is common in Alta.

There's a strong level of market choice between companies around the Alta area, but 900 locals can't get service from multiple providers. If these subscribers aren't satisfied with their provider, they have to use a low-speed wireless option. Luckily, this isn't the norm in Alta — the majority of households have 4-5 Internet options.

DSL Internet from telephone companies has a wide coverage area compared with other Internet services within Alta because pretty much all houses are connected to telephone lines. The acronym "DSL" means "Digital Subscriber Line."

While the main ISPs are Viasat and HughesNet, AT&T Internet also serves Alta with a recorded top speed of 25 Mbps. Plans from companies like Sky Fiber can deliver 100 Mbps or more using direct wireless hardware. See the interactive map on the page below to see how many options residents have on the census block level.
