SiFi Networks has been granted access to the City of Downey’s right of ways to build a state-of-the-art community wide, fiber optic network, known as the Downey FiberCity®.
Right now, you can register your interest for updates on the FiberCity® whilst we wait approval to commence with construction.
The network will be privately funded, built and operated by SiFi Networks and is open access to enable numerous internet service providers to deliver gigabit internet services to residents and businesses throughout the city.
The network is built using microtrenching technology. The microtrenching machine is specifically designed to cut a 1.25 inch wide by 12 inch deep trench where fiber can be laid. The machine cleans the debris as it cuts so no dust is created, and the machine operates at a low 85 decibels. After the trench is cut, the fiber cables are laid and the trench is reinstated.
