This map shows the rate of internet subscriptions statewide for 2018, the latest year available.  That’s before the pandemic and the effort to connect all students to online learning. The map shows census tracks color coded by rate of broadband subscriptions.

To see a school district, type in the name below or click on the arrow and select the district name.

*The number of subscriptions may exceed the number of households: vacation rentals are not counted as households; some households have more than one account.

    This is an amazing interactive map! Will you have the most updated data? This will help us inform our students’ needs. Thank you!

    The map shows UCLA and UCB’s University Village as very poorly served areas. UC Davis also shows as poorly connected. That’s definitely not the case as every student living at the UCLA dorms is connected to the campus backbone.

    Given that the authors gathered their data from the California Public Utilities Commission, Internet service provided by higher ed institutions to their students is not included. The authors might well consider explicitly acknowledging that in their description of this map.

    What is your definition of “broadband”? Do you have data for dial up? For satellite?
