Dear Valued Race Customer,

The Health and Safety of our employees and customers remains our top priority here at Race.  We continue to closely monitor the State and Federal updates and have our staff in direct communication with the CPUC and State CIO offices.   Our State is adapting and changing on a daily basis to stay ahead of the virus.  Your Race Team is evaluating these guidelines and protocols and adjusting company policies to adapt to these new conditions.

Race understands that now more than ever that our customers need to stay connected.  We are taking steps to assure all our customers can stay in touch with work, school and news.   Our staff will continue to work our normal business hours and our Network Operation Center (NOC) will continue to operate 24/7 to ensure the reliability and performance of our network.

Safety for our Technicians during site visits

  • We are continually educating staff on best hygiene and social distancing practices and are cleaning our equipment and vehicles on a regular basis.
  • When our installation or service work can be performed on the outside of the business or home, we will complete the work without customer contact.

Race has designed and built our fiber networks to be able to sustain maximum capacity.  With our NOC working 24/7 we will continue to monitor the network to maintain peak performance.

For our Race Enterprise customers, we continue to provide you the support you need.   If you are experiencing demands on your networks by your new remote workforce, please contact our support team to evaluate your connection.

Race will continue to send updates as conditions change.

Thank you,

The Race Team

Race works to #ClearTheList in CA.

For the past week, the hashtag clear the list has been trending on social media. #ClearTheList works to provide teachers with much-needed classroom goods. Teachers everywhere are sharing their wishlists asking for some help for the new school year.

Last year, Race Communications hosted backpack giveaways in two of our markets. This year, our company teamed up with HP Communications and Code3 IT to give away even more goodies in an effort to #ClearTheList. Thanks to the sponsorship of our partners, we were able to distribute over 400 backpacks across Kern and Mono counties as well as giving away over 7,000 pencils to schools in Tehachapi, Boron, Mojave and Bridgeport, CA!

Our company hosted three separate giveaways in the towns of Phelan, Boron and Bridgeport, CA and provided the Eastern Sierra School District with an additional 30 backpacks for children who attend their elementary schools.

In Boron, Kern County 2nd District Supervisor field representative Michael Clark along with the 2019 Boron Community Queens joined Team Race as they handed each child a backpack and also gave away sunglasses, frisbees, and other “swag”.

Race enjoys giving back to the communities we serve and we are already looking forward to next year’s back to school events!
