Los Angeles and Long Beach

Los Angeles and Long Beach Internet ScoreLos Angeles is the most populated city in California and one of the most bustling cities in the world. Surprisingly, it received a Broadband score of 53.7, which is 13.4% less than the state average of 60. Internet availability in this area can be hit or miss, with less than 2% of the population having access to speeds of 1 gbps and maximum download speeds of only 23 mbps. This internet speed can accommodate casual browsing but will most likely not allow customers to stream high definition videos.

Long Beach, which is a heavily populated beach town located just outside L.A., received the same Broadband score.

There are about 40 areas in San Diego County, including the large city of San Diego, that share this score. It ranks 38.6% behind the California state average of 60 and suggests decent access to wireless internet technology such as cable, DSL and fiber.
