Document Description
The proposed project consists of the construction of a fiberoptic backbone and fiber-to-the premises (FTTP) infrastructure to provide communication services throughout the City of Palo Alto. The project involves installing approximately 194 miles of fiberoptic cable, two local aggregation sites, up to approximately 200 underground utility vaults and 147 aboveground utility cabinets, and connections directly to subscribe to the fiber service. Except for the local aggregation sites and connections to subscribers, the fiberoptic cables, vaults, and cabinets would be located within existing public rights-of-way or easements.
