Working to bring Broadband

to ALL in the Foothills


The vision of Central Sierra Connect is to bridge the digital divide by bringing broadband to the people and the people to broadband.


The mission of Central Sierra Connect is to support the region’s residents, businesses, visitors and organizations through the promotion, coordination, and enhancement of e-technology: broadband access/adoption and technology education.

Download the CalSpeed app developed by the CPUC. It will give you upload and download speeds, but more importantly, it will record EVERY TIME you attempt, whether there is service or not. Each test tells the CPUC that you are trying to get service.


Use the CalSPEED mobile app to measure the quality of your mobile broadband service.


Feedback is encouraged to improve the accuracy of broadband availability data in California. Please send your feedback using the app or you can visit calspeed.org to install and use it on your desktop.


You can also complete an online survey and find public feedback in the Layers tool in the California Interactive Broadband Map.

Did You Know...

Many internet service plans are prohibitively expensive for low and fixed income customers.

Fortunately, there are multiple plans and programs that you can take advantage of in order to secure high-speed internet at a cost that works for you.

If you receive CalFresh, Medi-cal or another form of assistance, you may be eligible for reduced cost programs for internet and phone service. Contact your provider for more information or visit


to learn about various programs and services for income-eligible households.
