how am i supposed to find the best internet services in my area since i have recently shifted to california. im lookin for networking sites. please leme know if anyone can help me with it.??

I tend to use DSLREPORTS.com but you didn't reveal what makes "best." For some that's cost and speed and to others it's an ISP that will setup your home/business network since not all of us can play network god.

I'm in SoCal and with TWC aka Spectrum and have none of the trouble you read about.

That said there are "communities" that only allow AT&T here so unless you use a cellular connection, you get AT&T. Strange how that is since it seems to fly in the face of this usually consumer sided state.
