Fiber Optic Network

Back on December 13th of last year, the Mayor's office announced a public / private partnership with Gigabit Squared and the UW to connect businesses and residences to the city's fiber optic network It is called the Gigabit Neighborhood Gateway Program.

The connection speeds are expected to be up to 1,000 times faster than currently available high speed internet. The map below shows the 12 neighborhoods that will have the fiber connections pulled directly to buildings. Current plans for Lake City are to have wireless towers at 145th / LCW and 125th/ LCW to provide wireless connections to the fiber.

This project is still at the front end and we may still have an opportunity to be selected as a neighborhood. Members of Lake City Neighborhood Alliance have requested information on how Lake City can be included. Stay tuned for more information.
