Proposed fiber-optic system in Bakersfield metro will speed up Internet access | News

Homes and businesses across the capital, Bakersfield, will have the option to contract high-speed internet service as part of a $400 million fiber-optic system that the Delaware-based company is negotiating with Kern County and the city of Bakersfield.

At no cost to taxpayers, SiFi Networks is proposing to lay a fiber-optic cable along every street in the area, including Fuller Acres, Lamont and Oildale, within four years. The company will sell access to private ISPs who will in turn provide the service to individual customers.
