Quality Internet for Rural California


There are still many areas throughout California, in which access to quality internet does not exist or is not adequate. Access to affordable, equitable and reliable high-speed internet is critical for residents, businesses and communities to enhance education, public health, civic engagement, safety and economic opportunities.

Golden State Connect is here to bridge that unanswered gap in rural California.

Reducing the digital divide

Golden State Connect has big plans for rural communities in California. Our goal is for residents and businesses to have freedom of choice when it comes to their internet service provider (ISP). Customers will not be forced to choose between limited, overpriced options, but rather pick what best suits their needs. Simply put, when ISPs compete for your business, everyone wins.

Get up to speed

It’s a need that has been overlooked — until now. Golden State Connect is focused on building and supporting the development of innovative future proof networks that provide the highest level of quality, service and transparency. We will not settle for second best. The internet provided to rural California residents must be affordable, reliable, and high-speed internet.
