Regional Broadband Fiber-Optic Master Plan

South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG) is working with the South Bay Workforce Investment Board (SBWIB)  to develop a regional broadband, fiber-optic network. Through funding from the SBWIB,  fiber-optic master plan was prepared by Magellan Associates to address the feasibility of a regional broadband network that would connect to at least one city facility in each of the South Bay cities and play  a pivotal role in the region’s future. A high speed capacity broadband network will allow the South Bay cities to embrace the digital economy, smart city initiatives, integrated utilities and next-generation economic development. Planning for these initiatives is a necessity to remain competitive and differentiate the South Bay as a technology-savvy place to live, work, play and learn. As more business is transacted online, broadband has become an even more important component to equip local businesses with the services they need to compete and thrive in the digital economy. This master plan seeks to provide a detailed blueprint for broadband and technology infrastructure to keep the South Bay at the forefront of the digital economy.
