Costa Mesa Residential Internet Coverage

Sitting right beside heavily populated Newark Beach and Huntington Beach, Costa Mesa residents may enjoy the luxury of the beach-life, but they have limited options when it comes to internet providers.

AT&T services most of the area with DSL services. However, they may not provide services in areas near South Coast Plaza and Fountain Valley. Currently, AT&T offers DSL speeds up to 75 Mbps, with most residents getting up to 24 Mbps in the area.

Communities looking for high-speed cable internet can enjoy Time Warner Cable Spectrum. Offering the internet to all areas of Costa Mesa, they advertise speeds up to 300 Mbps to residents.

One other alternative for DSL and cable internet in the areas for those located around Orange Coast College have access to Sonic. They offer DSL speeds up to 100 Mbps and cable up to 12 Mbps, which can be a good alternative for higher DSL speeds.

HughesNet also services the area with satellite internet, offering speeds up to 15 Mbps. However, poor weather conditions can bring speeds down to 2-to-3 Mbps.

Terrible service. Anything connected to the internet is glitchy and very very slow. My download speed is only 17 Mbps. I feel ripped-off for what I'm paying. Shopping around for alternative providers.

U-Verse has great customer service but I mostly like it for the speed. The only major downside is the price.
