NOTABLE ITEM:  Item 23 – Special Report to Council regarding City Fiber Plan. 

  • City released a Request for Proposals to partner on the implementation of 5G services.  As a result, the City received a very promising proposal from SiFi Networks to make Palmdale a “Fiber City.”

 

  • SiFi is looking to invest approximately $160 million in Palmdale to deploy 800 miles of fiber throughout the City.

     
  • Once completed, essentially every home and every business in Palmdale will have access to high speed internet. Currently only about 5% of homes and 30% of businesses in Palmdale have that level of connectivity.

     
  • This service could help bridge the digital divide bringing high speed internet to all residents and businesses.

     
  • If approved, negotiations will begin for a Smart Cities Agreement to outline benefits to the City and its partners (school districts, etc.).

     
  • It will take approximately one year to plan and two years of construction to deploy throughout the entire City. Once fiber has been installed in a neighborhood, the services will be available there.
