South Valley Internet Brings Fiber to Santa Clara County, CA



  • South Valley Internet (SVI)

SAN MARTIN, CA – South Valley Internet Incorporated (SVI), an ISP serving the communities of Morgan Hill, San Martin and Gilroy, CA, announced that it has begun building a fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) network in South Santa Clara County. This new fiber construction project will bring high-speed, full-gigabit internet to 150 homes just to the west of Morgan Hill, CA. The new fiber infrastructure project is a result of hard work on the part of the SVI Team and their discovery of the CASF Grant program, managed by the CPUC. The grant will reimburse SVI for a portion of the costs of building this network.

Exceeding Current Broadband Needs; Planning for the Future
SVI’s network upgrade, delivering over 12 miles of new fiber to residents and business owners alike, represents one of only a few infrastructure projects in the state of California and is the first of its kind in South Santa Clara County. The new FTTH network eliminates traditional chokeholds created by incumbent operators while providing the area with a much-needed upgrade to meet the communication needs for today and well into the future. Independently-owned operators, such as South Valley Internet, are among a small select group of nationwide CLECS (competitive local exchange carriers) building communication infrastructure projects that promise communities access to high-speed broadband solutions that will exceed their broadband needs.

“This new infrastructure buildout has been a long time coming, and the residents of South Santa Clara County will greatly benefit from this FTTH network. Unlike the traditional incumbents, our local expertise and commitment to investing in top-tier services means that we don’t rely on ‘one size fits all’ solutions," states Elise Brentnall, president and COO of South Valley Internet Incorporated. "Instead, we use wireline (copper), point-to-multipoint wireless (both licensed and unlicensed frequencies) and now fiber-to-the-home to ensure our customers are leveraging fast internet that meets broadband needs today and can support future communications requirements.”

SVI is the only locally-owned company offering customers along this newly-constructed route access to high-speed network services at competitive prices. As the oldest local internet service provider founded in 1994, SVI was the first to deliver wireless internet services throughout the region in 1996. The company is dedicated to providing outstanding service and investing in building out infrastructure to meet the growing needs of businesses, communities and individuals.
