Could Silicon Valley be replaced as center of the tech universe by the only gigabit city in northern California and its surrounding communities? Lit San Leandro is a gig network launched by a local successful software entrepreneur who could not get the broadband speeds he needed, even in the Valley. The City is now energized to aggressively expand the network to usher in a new era of innovation in the region.

San Leandro Chief Innovation Officer Deb Acosta shares some of the City's vision as it prepares to host a regional workshop to give communities' stakeholders hands-on training in bringing highspeed broadband to constituents. The communities on the east side of the San Francisco Bay see the Lit San Leandro initiative :

  • cultivating a new generation of technology and bio tech entrepreneurs to take root;
  • uniting East Bay state, local and community colleges into a major center of academic research;
  • creating a nucleus of medical research and telemedicine advancement; and
  • upgrading the overall quality of life of residential and business constituents.
