Los Angeles Residential Internet Coverage

Broadband internet service (internet with a download speed of at least 25 Mbps) is available to 99% of Los Angeles residents. That means that nearly every Angeleno has access to broadband internet. Several Internet Service Providers of different types and sizes are available in LA, but AT&T and Spectrum serve the most areas.

The internet services available at your residence will vary greatly depending on what neighborhood you’re in. For example, if you live in the Palos Verdes/San Pedro area, you can get internet service from Cox Communications, while the rest of the city is more likely to have access to Spectrum. Similarly, people living in Santa Monica can get internet service through FiOS from Frontier, but people in downtown LA will have AT&T as their main fiber-optic internet option.

Almost all internet providers in Los Angeles allow you to bundle your internet service with a TV or phone service. You can use our availability map below to see which providers are available in your neighborhood.

If you’re one of the few people in LA without access to one of these broadband providers, you can still find reliable internet through a satellite internet provider like Exede or HughesNet.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the best cable Internet Service Provider in Los Angeles?
Spectrum is the biggest cable Internet Service Provider in Los Angeles. Some communities in the Palos Verdes area have access to internet service from Cox Communications, which also offers cable internet. Spectrum and Cox both offer speeds up to 100 Mbps and have customer ratings of 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Is Spectrum cable internet service good?
Spectrum generally delivers fast, reliable internet service. In our most recent Customer Satisfaction Survey, it was the highest-rated cable internet provider available in LA. Spectrum earned its highest ranking in the installation and setup category.
Should I switch from Spectrum to AT&T?

Both AT&T and Spectrum have good things to offer their customers. The best option for you will depend on your specific needs.

AT&T offers two types of internet service: a fiber internet service and a DSL/fiber hybrid internet service. Generally, AT&T’s fiber service is your best option for speed where it’s available, but Spectrum is a close second if you’re just looking for something fast. The hybrid service from AT&T is also an excellent internet option, especially for people on a budget.

For more on how these two internet providers compare, see our breakdown of AT&T vs. Spectrum.
Is ClearQAM available in Los Angeles?

ClearQAM is no longer available in Los Angeles.

Previously, cable TV providers were required to allow access to broadcast network channels without scrambling them. This was known as ClearQAM, and it meant that you could get your local channels simply by connecting your TV to the cable wall outlet—even if you didn’t have a subscription. Due to changes in the law, cable companies can now scramble local channel signals.

Now that ClearQAM isn’t available, if you want access to local LA channels, you can either bundle your internet service with a small TV package from your provider, or get just the over-the-air channels by purchasing a digital antenna for your TV, which might be the cheaper way to go.
What are my setup options?

The majority of residents in Los Angeles County have access to two major Internet Service Providers: AT&T and Spectrum. Both providers charge installation fees. Spectrum charges up to $30 for installation, and AT&T can charge up to $99 for installation.

You can opt for self-installation to avoid these fees, but unless you’re a professional installation tech, we don’t recommend it. These companies frequently offer promotions to new customers that include free installation or perks, like Visa gift cards, that essentially reimburse you the installation cost.

Pro Tip: If you need internet access before your service is installed, try your local public library. Most libraries have Wi-Fi, and it’s usually free to use.

Time warner cable does a decent job. Prices are reasonable. Service is good. and Customer service is not bad either. I wish I didn't have to bundle to get all the good prices though. Definitely don't need a house phone these days.

I have been absolutely fed up with the outages with Time Warner. I can't tell you how many times the internet has just completely gone out for anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. I've spent so many hours on the phone with their customer support that I dread having to call them yet again every time my internet is out. When it's working, it is very fast if I'm hard-wired to the modem. The wi-fi performance drops off considerably. If I'm sitting right next to the modem, it's about half the speed of the wired connection. If I'm in another room, it's much, much worse. I wish there were another provider in the area that offered anywhere near those speeds. We had Verizon FIOS at our old place and never had any problems.
