Newer, Faster Internet In The South Bay
The South Bay has a new fiber optic network designed to bring high speed internet to the region.
The project was instituted in part because businesses were leaving the area, said Christian Horvath, a member of the Redondo Beach City Council.
“They were citing a lack of broadband infrastructure to help meet their needs,” he said.
The network connects the South Bay with L.A. County’s intelligent traffic network.
“We can create signal synchronization on the major arterials throughout the South Bay,” Horvath said. “During rush hour time, we can improve the amount of traffic flow just by having all these signals connected.”
Horvath added that the network puts cities in a better position to offer Wi-Fi to residents, and could potentially interface with autonomous vehicles in the future.
