Internet Access in Sylmar, California

Sylmar features only two major Internet service choices to grapple with — cable (practically one hundred percent coverage) and DSL (96.57% availability). Coaxial cable broadband service is provided by traditional cable TV providers using copper coaxial television lines mounted on utility poles. DSL is sent over landline phone lines. Most Sylmar addresses have access to cable or DSL service from at least two ISPs.

Spectrum is also a commonly available Internet choice for Sylmar, offering primarily Cable service with coverage in virtually one hundred percent of the area. Go Creative Wireless offers an alternative wireless service to 88 percent of the local area. Keep in mind fixed wireless has to have roof access and proximity to a Go Creative Wireless tower or access point.

Viasat Internet and HughesNet are Sylmar's primary wired broadband choices.

We should note here that since FCC data is processed twice a year and only published six or more months after that, provider availability listed in the results might not reflect the most recent expansions.

On the whole, amount of ISPs in Sylmar isn't strong (2.13 companies available in the average census block). 2 companies per resident isn't a lot, but it's enough to create competition around price, which is good for consumers in better connected neighborhoods.
