Most communities in the Eastern Sierra now have access to internet service that is as good, or better than, what you would find in the metropolitan US.

FCC National Broadband Map – Verify Your Service And Location
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has been maintaining a map of broadband service availability for locations across the country. You can verify both the service available where you live or work, and the precise location of the building or buildings where service is available.
To view the service location, open the link (https://broadbandmap.fcc.gov/home), enter your address in the “Search by Address” box, and you should see a map with your location and nearby locations. You can zoom in and out using the controls in the upper left part of the map to get a closer view of your location, and you can select the viewable layers to look at the satellite view to be certain that you’re looking at the correct building.
To view the available Internet service at your home or business, use the same link and click on the dot representing your location. The information on the right side of the browser window should now list any Internet Service Providers that can provide services to that location.
If you feel that the location or available bandwidth is incorrect, you can click on the appropriate links to challenge the FCC’s information by clicking on the Location Challenge or the Availability Challenge links.
Here are some how-to tutorials on submitting challenges to the FCC Broadband Map data:
