Internet Access in Wrightwood, California

Data below is drawn from the FCC's bi-annual provider territory reports. We leverage direct reporting from providers to enhance that data. Plane and pricing information on BroadbandNow is aggregated through our market research team. BroadbandNow has analyzed 211 bundled Internet deals in the area around Wrightwood in the past few years. Speed test data in the graph below is limited to 146 records as of 2021. This gives a snapshot of what some subscribers are getting in the area, but trends low since tests are usually run to diagnose home networking issues.

Viasat Internet is the most widely available option for Wrightwood residents. They are available to virtually one hundred percent of Wrightwood addresses. HughesNet is the most likely second choice, with coverage in virtually one hundred percent of the area with Satellite service. HughesNet's fastest plan for Wrightwood is 25 Mbps.

The average home in Wrightwood has 2 wired Internet options available to them. 2.29% of the Wrightwood area — 100 people — are limited to one or fewer choices. cable and DSL Internet services almost always provide the best price and data policies for home use.

Frontier Communications provides an second choice to the primary providers (Viasat and HughesNet), serving Wrightwood with 98 percent local coverage and a top speed of 24 Mbps. Wired broadband isn't the only option for Internet service in Wrightwood. fixed wireless outfits like T-Mobile Home Internet can achieve 25 Mbps over wireless hardware.

In summary, Wrightwood's broadband infrastructure follows a similar pattern to other US cities: widespread availability of cable and DSL, but limited options since the majority of houses or apartments are stuck with one company for setting up either type of service. This pattern has a logical cause. Broadband Internet providers used to be cable TV and landline phone corporations. So, they already own pre-existing copper wired networks for delivering their Internet service. Fiber Internet has been expanding as a third option, and while some plans marketed as "Fiber" plans aren't actually "Fiber to the Home" connections, 94.40 percent of the Wrightwood area is covered by fiber Internet stretching at least to the property.
