THE BEGINNING – FIBER-OPTIC TECHNOLOGY
Groundwork for San Leandro’s transformation occurred in 2012 when city leaders partnered with Dr. J. Patrick Kennedy, founder of local software company OSIsoft, to modernize San Leandro’s communications infrastructure. They formed a public-private partnership to build the fiber optic loop, which has been instrumental to attracting a new generation of companies to San Leandro. That partnership, called Lit San Leandro, provides the fastest broadband spends in the nation.
THE IMPACT – COMMUNITY BENEFIT
Lit San Leandro pulled the fiber optic loop to support the business community and economic development here in San Leandro. While San Leandro Dark Fiber owns the physical asset in the ground, Lit San Leandro maintains it and brings lightning-fast internet options to our business community.
Currently, Lit San Leandro is looking to expand our network with businesses within the city of San Leandro. We were founded to meet the needs of San Leandro businesses, and we want to make sure they are our priority before expanding into neighboring cities.
Within the coming years, we want to expand and empower businesses in the greater East Bay.
If you are interested in getting fiber to your business or partnering with us to provide professional-grade internet too businesses in the SF East Bay, please reach out to us.
Our team of professionals has many of years of experience in the telecommunications industry.
