Many of you are likely wondering which internet providers serve the Ridgecrest area. Luckily for us, there are a couple of options available.
Both Mediacom and Frontier cover over 95% of Ridgecrest properties and offer internet service to residents. Mediacom offers speeds as high as 200 mbps with prices from $49.99/mo to $79.99/mo.
There is also a local fixed wireless provider that serves the area, IWVISP. Although IWVISP covers all of the Ridgecrest area, speeds are currently capped at 3-10 mbps. The monthly price, according to the IWVISP website, is only $50 per month.
Two satellite internet providers, Viasat and Hughesnet, also offer internet options to Ridgecrest residents. While satellite internet provides higher latency and is not ideal for gaming, it is an option that is available especially for those who are off-grid or not in close proximity to utilities.
