Roughly 71,600 Sonoma County households could have free high-speed internet service via a federal subsidy program, yet only about 10% of those who are eligible have enrolled.

In Mendocino and Lake counties, where more than half of households qualify for the discount aimed at low-income residents, only 13% and 26% have signed up, respectively.
