What is the best internet option in Portola?

Xfinity is the cheapest internet option in Portola; for more than half of buildings in the neighborhood, it's also the fastest option in terms of download speed. As of 2024, they've increased the cable speed in Portola to match their west coast standard of 1,000 Mbps maximum.

Page Summary

  • Monkeybrains has built out fixed wireless internet service to dozens of apartment buildings in Portola, providing a much-needed local alternative with low pricing ($35+ per month).
  • Fiber internet is limited to a few blocks serviced by AT&T. Sonic has not been able to build into Portola yet due to permitting wait times.
