Summary Fiber Access All providers

Spectrum is the most common internet service option in Santa Ana, and their base 200 Mbps plan is the most commonly selected internet-only plan for residents.

Beyond assuring residents that the community will benefit from some of the $5B in distance learning funds being dispersed by the state in the aftermath of the Covid-19 epidemic of 2020, Santa Ana has little in the way of a response to the digital divide. 1
