New SF buildings could be fiber-ready

Supervisor Mark Farrell furthered his citywide fiber optic internet access vision Tuesday by introducing legislation that would ensure new development is “fiber ready.”

Under the proposal, commercial development of more than 25,000 square feet and residential development of at least three units must include infrastructure necessary to install fiber technology, which means providing “dedicated telecommunications space in a centrally located place in the building and to install fiber-ready cabling.”

“Buildings subject to the ordinance must also provide fiber to the premises and optical network terminals,” the legislation said.
