AT&T

AT&T is the local phone company that provides wired telephone service to all residents of Rancho Santa Fe. Most RSF residents can also get varying levels of Internet connectivity from AT&T.

Depending on where your house is located, you could get no Internet connectivity, 1-3 Mbps download (via copper DSL), or up to 25 Mbps download speeds (if they have installed fiber to the curb in your area). In addition, rumor has it that they will build a "fiber link" to your property if you opt for a business class service ($600-$900/month) and a three year commitment.

Even if HomeFusion is not available at your house, it is possible that you can still get reasonable 4G LTE coverage for your mobile devices that have built in 4G or LTE radios, such as cell phones, tablets, and modem equipped laptops.

Note that cellular wireless Internet solutions have data caps and are expensive when those data caps are exceeded.

AT&T Wireless

AT&T Wireless does not have a fixed wireless solution, but does have 4G LTE available at various locations in RSF. If you have a strong enough 4G signal, you use mobile devices that have built in 4G or LTE radios, such as cell phones, tablets, and modem equipped laptops.

ViaSat Exede

ViaSat Exede is a Carlsbad based company that purchased "Wildblue" satellite broadband and launched a new broadband satellite to improve coverage over North America. ViaSat also rebranded "Wildblue" as Exede.

Exede requires an external satellite dish, which connects to an Exede supplied router.

Note that latency (since it is a geosynchronous satellite) is high in the 700 to 800ms range, or about 10-50 times longer than cable or DSL. High latency means that surfing from one site to the next will be slightly slower and internet gaming will not work at all.

Direct TV also offers broadband service through a partnership with ViaSat.
