City of Vallejo and Inyo Networks Partner to Launch Fiber Internet Service

  • Inyo Networks
VALLEJO, CA – The city of Vallejo and Inyo Networks, a telecommunications provider operating in California and Nevada, will launch Internet services in summer 2017 using the city-owned fiber network, establishing Vallejo as an economic hub for the tech economy and providing improvements in health, education and public safety.

“Fiber communications are critical to public services and commerce in the 21st Century,” said Vallejo Mayor Bob Sampayan. “Vallejo’s ecosystem of supporting businesses is a major asset, and we will now be able to better leverage more of our resources to attract, retain and grow businesses and development. With downtown and Mare Island right on the waterfront and affordable commercial real estate, we are perfectly situated in the San Francisco Bay Area to become a destination for the new economy.”

Inyo Networks Leases city-owned Fiber
The public-private partnership, approved by the Vallejo City Council, leases city-owned fiber to Inyo Networks, a certified local exchange carrier in California and Nevada, and specializes in the development and management of public benefit fiber networks. Inyo Networks will market and provide retail services to public agencies, educational institutions, medical facilities and businesses at rates substantially lower than existing providers.

Entities in Vallejo will be able to secure a dedicated, 1 gigabit symmetrical circuit for $1,500 per month or 100 megabits for $250 per month. Lower bundle pricing is available for multi-tenant buildings.

Rates 75 Percent Lower than Current Providers
The city’s fiber infrastructure, currently used to communicate between departments, does not carry any debt or require significant capital investment. Therefore, Inyo Networks can provide retail services and pass the cost savings onto customers, with rates 75 percent lower than current providers. The partnership also includes a revenue sharing component, with 33 percent of gross receipts reinvested into city infrastructure.

Vallejo is well-connected by road and water infrastructure to San Francisco and Sacramento, offers affordable real estate, and is a burgeoning center for health care, high tech and advanced manufacturing jobs. The city and Inyo Networks are already engaging with potential customers, including organizations exploring possible relocation to Vallejo, and can provide detailed cost estimates and quotes for service ahead of the summer 2017 launch.

Inyo Networks is a telecommunications provider, including management of a public network in Ontario, California, as well as the Digital 395 Project, which involved constructing 583 miles of conduit and fiber from Carson City, Nevada to Barstow, California. Inyo provides high-speed broadband to dozens of communities, military bases, libraries and educational institutions, medical facilities, government entities, businesses and households. Inyo Networks – as well as their engineering/design partner company, Praxis Associates – is based on Mare Island in Vallejo, which adds a local touch to the customer service experience.
