Visitors to City Hall will get a chance to test the city’s network of broadband Internet for the next month.
Starting this week, the “Gig Test” gives the public a taste of the high-speed offered to local businesses for years.
The “Gig Test” is the latest project from CityNetTM, Santa Monica’s broadband initiative committed to offering broadband solutions considered affordable and fast by global standards.
“Santa Monica continues to leverage our fiber optic network to maximize its benefit to our community for a number of community priorities including transportation, Wi-Fi access, education, mobility, and economic development. We have been a leader in network technologies, and will continue our focus on continuous improvement in this area into the future” said Jory Wolf, the city of Santa Monica’s chief information officer.
