    In 2018 the State of California established the standard for broadband at 10 Mbps download / 1 Mbps upload. We partnered with the Central Coast Broadband Consortium (CCBC) and got key players together to determine our own regional broadband standard of 100 Mbps download / 20 Mbps upload, and are working to get high-speed internet coverage throughout the region.
