The South Bay Cities will soon become even more closely connected as they join forces to offer faster and less expensive broadband connectivity to their facilities with an investment in a next-generation dedicated fiber network. The South Bay Cities Council of Governments (“SBCCOG”) has awarded a contract to American Dark Fiber (“ADF”), a Southern California broadband company. They will build and provide gigabit, scalable broadband connectivity to the Joint Powers Authority for the 16 cities and County of Los Angeles that comprise the SBCCOG. The announcement was jointly made recently by Councilmember Christian Horvath, SBCCOG Chair, Jacki Bacharach, SBCCOG Executive Director, and American Dark Fiber CEO, David Daigle.
The project’s “Fiber Ring” will connect the cities of Carson, El Segundo, Gardena, Hawthorne, Hermosa Beach, Inglewood, Lawndale, Lomita, Manhattan Beach, Palos Verdes Estates, Rancho Palos Verdes, Redondo Beach, Rolling Hills, Rolling Hills Estates, and Torrance. In addition, the South Bay Workforce Investment Board, LA BioMed, Beach Cities Health District (BCHD), LA Metro, and LA County Public Works are participating in the project.
