California, with a population of over 40 million people, is home to the 11th highest peak in the United States, vast deserts, and possibly some of the world's most beautiful beaches. As a result, it's no surprise that none of the internet service providers in the area provide a "one-size-fits-all" option for people. Satellite internet providers are likely to be the first choice for more than 5 million rural residents because it operates well in sparsely populated areas. To gain a clear view of the sky, satellite internet needs an established dish antenna. Wired or fiber internet connections are more effective in densely populated areas.
