The City's 96 strand fiber optic network is available for lease as dark fiber to commercial service providers. The network was established in 2002 in order to upgrade the City's communications infrastructure and keep costs low.
Sixty strands of the network were made commercially available in 2006 to service providers, to spur economic growth and competition among Internet service providers while providing state-of-the art connectivity to the City's businesses.
The network has grown nearly every year since its inception and now provides fiber connectivity to nearly 500 local businesses.
The City is now studying whether to expand the network to include connectivity to the home. Here is a list of options under consideration, and you can go here to take a survey.
