Internet Service in San Diego, California

San Diego resides along the Pacific Coast Highway, where beachgoers have easy access to restaurants, art galleries, historical museums, gardens, and downtown. While it’s not widely known for tech companies and startups, many internet providers keep the city’s residents and business owners connected. AT&T Internet and T-Mobile 5G Home Internet are mostly available in popular neighborhoods, such as Carmel Valley and La Jolla, and offer the latest technology to deliver the fastest speeds.

Fastest Internet Providers in San Diego

The fastest internet providers in San Diego are AT&T Fiber, Spectrum, and Cox. AT&T Fiber offers symmetrical gigabit speeds on its higher-tiered internet plans, with download and upload speeds of up to 5 Gbps. New customers who sign up for one of its fiber plans get to enjoy perks like a free subscription to streaming services, reward cards, and free equipment.

When fiber internet service isn’t available in your San Diego neighborhood, Spectrum, a cable internet provider, is a great alternative to offering gigabit speeds. Spectrum’s internet plans, while few and far between, have no data caps and don’t require contracts.

Cox is the next best option for a cable internet provider that offers gigabit download speeds. Aside from the internet, Cox is also known for offering TV and phone bundles. It’s your best choice if you want more value for signing up for more than one type of service.

Frequently Asked Questions About Internet in San Diego, California

  • What is the best internet provider in San Diego?

    AT&T is the most widely available internet provider in San Diego, and we consider it to be the best — especially if you have access to AT&T Fiber, which is faster than cable and other connection types. San Diego’s two cable internet providers, Cox Communications and Spectrum, are also worthy choices.

  • Which San Diego internet provider is the cheapest?

    If cost is your top concern, you’ll want to check out the cheapest plan in town. The lowest costs can be found with Cox Communications, which offers a plan that starts at just $29.99/month per month.

  • Is T-Mobile Home Internet available in San Diego?

    T-Mobile 5G Home Internet launched in San Diego in 2021, and since then, it’s offered 5G download speeds that average between 33 Mbps to 182 Mbps to residents’ homes. The service costs just $50 a month when you take advantage of the AutoPay discount. Speedy 5G technology makes this wireless home internet service a serious competitor to wired alternatives.

  • Is Verizon 5G Home Internet available in San Diego?

    Yes, many (though not all) San Diego residents have access to Verizon’s speedy wireless home internet service. This popular service is faster than its major 5G competitors and can be bundled with Verizon Wireless service at a discounted price.

  • AT&T vs. Spectrum and Cox: What should San Diego residents know?

    AT&T is widely available in San Diego, and its best solution for the internet — AT&T Fiber — is the clear-cut fastest choice in the area. For most users, AT&T beats Cox and Spectrum. But when it comes to a showdown between the two cable internet connections, the competition is a little tighter. Spectrum and Cox both offer cable internet connections that can reach 1 Gbps, though our Cox speed tests show faster results on average than our Spectrum speed tests.

  • Is there financial assistance for internet service in San Diego?

    San Diego created the SD Access 4 All program to bridge the digital divide for thousands of residents. The program offers free public Wi-Fi at over 300 locations across San Diego, mainly at libraries and city-owned parks and recreation areas. It also provides free laptops and hotspots you can check out at any branch of the San Diego Public Library.
