About Us

Our Mission

In today's connected world, reliable, high-speed internet is an absolute necessity, and it is our company's mission to provide advanced communications at an affordable price. Launched in 1995, Race is a leading provider of fiber Internet service throughout California, including a growing number of remote, rural communities that broadband carriers have long ignored.

Working in partnership with the California Public Utilities Commission and a number of non-profit community advocacy groups, Race focuses much of its efforts towards building out fiber networks and offering affordable gigabit internet service to communities throughout the state.

Not only will homes and businesses be seamlessly connected to a wealth of entertainment and cloud services, Race's fiber network helps bring significant improvements to local business, education, community services and public safety.

Jim Miller comes to us with a wealth of knowledge of the telecommunications industry. As VP of Las Americas Broadband, he helped launch cutting edge systems in Baja, California. In 2004, he started High Desert Wireless, the first ISP in Mojave, CA and the Tehachapi Valley region. Just two years later, in 2006, his company was awarded Tech Company of the year by Kern County Board of Supervisors. High Desert Wireless became the premier ISP of choice in the region among leading aerospace and green energy companies in the region. When Race acquired High Desert Wireless in 2013, his expertise in product development and knowledge of the market added enormous value to the company as it began its efforts in Kern County.
