(Oxnard, Ca) The City of Oxnard is calling upon the business community in its efforts to better understand infrastructure challenges. How is broadband internet access working for you?
Oxnard is inviting businesses, institutions and other commercial organizations in Oxnard, Port Hueneme and the surrounding area to complete a broadband survey in order to ensure everyone has the high-speed Internet services they need to participate in today’s economy. The survey is available in English and Spanish. The survey should be completed by the person within the organization who selects and/or pays for internet services. Ideally, organizations should complete the survey using a computer directly connected to the internet, but they may use any internet-connected device if they don’t have broadband.
Oxnard recently began the process of developing a citywide Fiber Master Plan for building a high-speed fiber optic network to bring gigabit-speed Internet to the city. It has contracted with Magellan Advisors and Iteris, Inc., to assist in developing a plan that achieves Oxnard’s goal of leveraging its current fiber assets to become a “Tech” and “Gigabit” city.
Oxnard currently maintains a fiber-optic network that spans more than 35 miles throughout the city and is used to connect traffic signals, city facilities and internal city services. Access to affordable and reliable high-speed fiber-optic broadband will help support the implementation of Smart City and IoT (Internet of Things) devices to improve the Oxnard community for all businesses, residents and visitors.
