Internet Access in Tehachapi, California
The overall most commonly available wired broadband types in Tehachapi are IPBB and Fixed Wireless followed by Cable lines. FCC filings suggest IPBB and Fixed Wireless reaches a 56.96 percent footprint in the area, compared with the 52.15 percent Cable penetration.
Since FCC data is currently only collected twice a year and only made public 6+ months later, availability shown here may not be complete.
AT&T Internet is also a common Internet option in Tehachapi, offering primarily IPBB and Fixed Wireless service with coverage in 56 percent of Tehachapi.
The average Tehachapi customer has 2-3 Internet providers that are able to provide service at that location. By California standards, this is a decent level of market competition. It means most customers have at least two companies competing on pricing and service reliability at a given address. This Internet access isn't distributed evenly, however. A surprising 38.02 of residents still have only one option for wired broadband services.
Viasat Internet is the most widespread Internet option overall, registered with coverage in practically one hundred percent of the area. HughesNet, in contrast, is available for about close to one hundred percent of local residents. The fastest download speed advertised for Viasat reaches 100 Mbps, while HughesNet offers packages up to 25 Mbps. In general, any speed over 10 megabits per second (Mbps) will be enough for streaming standard definition video on WiFi. However, it may become problematic when multiple people try to use high-bandwidth apps such as video chat, cloud apps, and multiplayer gaming.

Customer Reviews of Internet Providers in Tehachapi
Have not had a problem with internet since Race came to Tehachapi. Service has been reliable, even in snow and rain. No complaints. Great company.
Race is superb. I have no complaints after almost two years of service. Had to start with the 25 Mbps speed, but after struggling for years using a cell phone as a "hotspot", it was dreamy to actually reduce our overall utility bill while greatly improving our quality of life. On a separate note, their voluntary commitment to net neutrality is not only a comfort as a subscriber but says volumes about their business ethics and commitment to the communities they serve. I've been trying to clear some room in the budget so they can "Gigafy Me!" asap.
We love Race!
We live in a mountainous area and previously had satellite internet. The service was very intermittent. Since Race came to town, our service is fast and reliable. And it's less than half the price we paid for satellite, plus we get our home phone for $10 a month.
Day 2 since installation
2 days since installation: Very pleased.
A small(er), but mighty provider
While Race Communications is not (yet) a household name for many, if you're lucky enough to live within their service area, there is no better provider. Yes, they struggled with enough coverage and the build process was a bit slow (it is a brand new fiber to the home network), but the service is leaps and bounds ahead of the rest! Not to mention, they're affordable. I love being able to speak to LOCAL employees whenever I have a question. Thank you Race!
Thank you Race
Since we have had broadband service through Race Communications, we have been very happy. The few times I've had to call them about something, they are very helpful, knowledgeable and courteous. We also have our landline through Race. No problems there, either. Our previous ISP was very expensive and a big rigamarole to try to get a real person on the line. Thank you Race!
