The Fullerton FiberCity™ network which is privately funded, built and operated by SiFi Networks will be an open access network enabling a choice of internet service providers whilst saving customers money on what will be one of the most reliable FiberCity networks in the USA.
The primary internet service providers on the network will be GigabitNow and Ting, both exceptional providers with excellent customer service levels and competitive pricing.
“We are delighted to work alongside such great internet service providers who bring fantastic levels of customer service and tailored products and services giving customers much needed choice in Fullerton,” said Ben Bawtree-Jobson, CEO of SiFi Networks.
Construction is expected to commence in June 2019 using a technique called micro-trenching which causes minimal disruption. Customers are able to pre-subscribe to service now with either Ting or GigabitNow. Pre-subscribers will benefit from the best deals; and the first homes will receive service before the end of the year.
“Ting is excited to meet the people and the businesses of Fullerton and work with the community to bring the benefits of gigabit fiber Internet backed by a truly human customer experience,” said Ting CEO, Elliot Noss.
The Fullerton FiberCity project will provide a significant upgrade to internet speeds and accommodate a growing demand for data from next generation devices in local households and businesses. It will also facilitate new smart city initiatives in key government services, such as traffic control, street lighting and emergency services.
“GigabitNow is excited to show the citizens of Fullerton what truly fast and reliable Internet is like. We don’t use bandwidth caps or sell our customer’s browsing data. Internet that is free from constraints and privacy worries – is how we feel the internet is meant to be,” said Stephen Milton, CEO of GigabitNow.
“We are delighted to welcome SiFi Networks and its ISP partners GigabitNow and Ting to the city,” stated Fullerton City Manager, Ken Domer. “Having a true fiber optic network passing every part of the city is an amazing opportunity for smart city applications, bringing competition to the city’s communication needs, and creating enhanced opportunities for economic development.”
