L.A. store owner sees shop looted on livestream computer feed

What Lindsay Pierce saw on her security cameras Saturday night made her ill.

After hours of being glued to the TV news, she’d turned her focus to her computer, where she could monitor her Melrose Avenue business, Wax, through security cameras.

She wanted to keep an eye on her store as protesters continued to move through the Fairfax District. The 33-year-old has owned the store for a year, but the business has been around for more than a decade.

About 11 p.m., she said, three young men darted inside after windows of the glass storefront were shattered. They immediately moved to the business’ internet router and disconnected it, cutting off Pierce’s connection.

“I started sweating. I got sick to my stomach. I was just thinking, ‘Please don’t light it on fire,’” Pierce said Sunday morning as friends and workers cleaned up the vandalized business and cleared the sidewalk of broken

Amid coronavirus, internet is hard for poor students to find

Tamara Solis faced a choice when it came to her children’s education: Pay for rent and food or pay for internet access. Broadband came in second, so she takes her kids to a friend’s garage apartment in Watts for internet — where they do their schoolwork in close quarters amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“It’s a small place,” said Solis, noting that it was difficult to abide by recommended physical distancing guidelines. “We try to do the best — one on the table, one on the sofa, one on the bed … but it’s not big enough to keep far away.”

Her plight is not unique.

Despite promises of help, families in the low-income neighborhoods of Watts, Boyle Heights and South Los Angeles have struggled to get online, with at least 16% of students lacking basic internet access, according to a survey of public school families in those communities released Wednesday

Top 32 Internet Providers in Los Angeles, CA

Los Angeles residential internet coverage

Broadband internet service (internet with a download speed of at least 25 Mbps) is available to 99% of Los Angeles residents. That means that nearly every Angeleno has access to broadband internet. Several internet service providers of different types and sizes are available in LA, but AT&T and Spectrum serve the most areas.

Since Los Angeles is such a sprawling megalopolis, the internet services available at your residence will vary greatly depending on what neighborhood you’re in. Here’s a breakdown of what kind of service you’ll find in different parts of the city:

 

West Los Angeles

Spectrum has you covered for cable internet in Westside areas like Brentwood, Westwood, and Santa Monica—its network spans the entire city. AT&T, meanwhile, offers DSL and fiber options in most of the Westside. However, AT&T isn’t available in coastal communities from Marina del Rey up to Topanga State Park.

Ventura, CA Internet Providers (940 Mbps)

There are 26 Internet providers operating in Ventura. 5 of these are mobile LTE providers.

Viasat Internet (formerly Exede) and HughesNet are currently Ventura’s most common wired Internet options.

Keep in mind that since FCC coverage data is only collected biannually and only published six or more months later, availability shown here may not be complete.

The level of competition between broadband providers in Ventura is overall strong. The average home has 3 providers to choose from. This choice isn’t spread out fairly. A notable 6.07 percent of area residents still only have one or zero options for true broadband service.

To summarize, Ventura’s Internet market follows a similar pattern to other California towns and cities: widespread coverage of cable and DSL, but limited choice since a majority of houses or apartments are limited to a single company for either type of service. The cable/DSL pattern results from the fact
