SiFi Networks works with the city to obtain access to citywide public rights-of-way, including permissions on certain construction techniques and expedited permitting processes, to ensure our fiber network passes every building. By doing this, it also means we dig once and only once removing costs and disruption that could be associated with future connectivity.
Once we have received the rights of way agreement, we conduct our detailed analysis of demand as well as cost to construct and operate the network, whilst negotiating agreements with service providers to access the network.
SiFi Networks’ experienced team and partners design, build and operate a network which is available not only for Internet Service Providers, but also for municipal use to support immediate and future efficiencies on IT spend. We also fit access points for Smart City applications as standard, giving the city, or enterprises the ability to host Smart City applications such as traffic light or waste management systems for example. Our fiber saturates every street of a city with fiber capacity enabling large scale small cell deployments for carriers and their partners alike.
By creating a city wide fiber footprint SiFi Networks helps to close the digital divide, create competition in the market and drive both economic development and innovation.
