In today’s information economy, success is measured by the speed in which ideas and information can be transferred—across the country and around the world. San Leandro’s fiber optic loop, Lit San Leandro, offers speeds that are thousands of times faster than the average U.S. Internet connection. San Leandro's fiber optic network–ultra-thin glass filament cables that allow data to travel at the speed of light–provides unsurpassed data/internet speeds and capacities. Businesses relocating to SLTC will have access to "dark fiber" to satisfy their information technology requirements. Lit San Leandro is a public-private partnership between the City of San Leandro and OSIsoft founder Dr. J. Patrick Kennedy.
“San Leandro just happened to have everything we were looking for.”
- Aaron Selverston, Founder & CEO, Owlized
