Lit San Leandro offers an opportunity to revolutionize the City’s telecommunications infrastructure, positioning San Leandro to be a major player in the high-tech, advanced manufacturing, and clean-tech economies.
- On March 2, 2012, Lit San Leandro went live with activation of the first strand of fiber, connecting its first building to the fiber optic network.
- In August, 2012, most of the 11 mile foundation and main backbone of the loop was installed and operational. This completed Phase I. We used space within the existing underground conduits to complete a “fiber ring” around San Leandro with a new 288 strand fiber optic cable.
- By the end of first quarter 2015, three extension areas will be installed and operational. Phase II extends the original 11 miles to nearly 20 miles, connecting three additional areas. For the first time, business properties within San Leandro will have access to unparalleled Internet connectivity needed today and in the future.
