SBCCOG Completion of High-Speed Internet Infrastructure to Help Usher City Facilities Through COVID-19 Challenges; Improve Regional Transportation

With the completion of a dedicated fiber-optic network in the South Bay region of Los Angeles County, city halls, along with other local and regional public agencies, will now benefit from high-speed, low-cost broadband connectivity that provides the critical infrastructure for South Bay Cities to boldly step into the world of “smart city” applications.

The new network, called the South Bay Fiber Network (SBFN), was made possible through a 15-city municipal partnership forged by the South Bay Cities Council of Governments (SBCCOG). The new broadband infrastructure provides an essential public asset and resource to city governments as they manage economic viability during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond and creates opportunities to bridge the “digital divide” in communities underserved with broadband.
