The County of San Diego is working to develop a comprehensive broadband plan to increase internet connectivity throughout its unincorporated areas. The County plans to collaborate with public and private entities to create equitable access across its communities in order to set the foundations for a highly connected future that advances economic opportunity, environmental sustainability, educational attainment, public safety and resilience, and telehealth.

The project has three main priorities:

  1. Listen to our stakeholders and communities
  2. Develop a plan that promotes digital equity through robust and affordable broadband infrastructure and digital literacy programs
  3. Take advantage of current and future funding opportunities

    Valley Center

    by th3w, about 1 month ago
    I'm the only house on my street that doesn't have access to cable internet and have to rely on the fixed wireless service that caps out at 15 Mbps at over $100. My only option is to pay out of pocket to have a line dug from a neighboring property, which is incredibly expensive.

    Dangerous instability during fires or other life threatening emergencies

    by CharlieG, 4 months ago
    last two years the power was shut off in the area while a large fire was nearby. due to limited cellular signal (verizon) we rely on wifi calling and LTE extenders for signal. this left us completely disconnected from any communication, information or evacuation alerts.

    For Borrego Springs:

    by Borrego Springs Economic Development/Tourism/Education, 5 months ago

    For Borrego Springs:

    1. Our need for reliable internet is urgent. We suffer outages every week, which makes it very difficult to work, learn, or operate a business.
    2. There are federal and state grant programs that are coming online, and we would like San Diego County to move beyond studies and reports.
    3. We would like to see a specific plan for Borrego Springs in 2022-23, that can then be expanded to other rural parts of the county. We have active community participation in the Revitalization Committees, which would be glad to assist.
