    Time Warner or Comcast would be the fastest.


    I don't think that they have FiOS there, do they?

    I'm using Cox. We don't have Comcast available in the area. Nor Time Warner.

    I'm not sure if Sonic Fusion (ADSL2+) is available in San Rafael yet, though it's been available in most of the larger Bay Area cities for some time. They're a North Bay-based independent ISP with an excellent track record of delivering good connectivity and great customer service.

    Not affiliated with Sonic, just a satisfied customer.

    You can get different tiered plans from Comcast. Get a new plan. Or get XFinity.

    As a Bay Area resident (first in Palo Alto and now in San Francisco)

    I think your only real options will be either comcast, AT&T or possibly sonic.net-Time Warner, Fios, Cox-all are not available anywhere in the Bay Area that I am personally aware of.

    Comcast has a near stranglehold (for better or worse) in the Bay Area in terms of service

    sonic.net is the best, if it is available from your CO. Definitely check it out. Disclaimer: I have no affiliation other than having been a very happy customer in the past.
