Lit San Leandro was conceived of by Dr. J. Patrick Kennedy, a San Leandro resident, and CEO and founder of OSIsoft, one of the City’s largest employers. This project offers an opportunity to revolutionize San Leandro’s telecommunications infrastructure, positioning the City to be a major player in the high-tech and clean-tech economies. On March 2, 2012, Lit San Leandro went live, with the first piece of fiber being activated, connecting its first building to the fiber optic network. As of August, 2012, the vast majority of the loop has been installed and is operational.
