 DSL and slow Internet service may soon be a thing of the past for residents of Vernon now that the city council has approved a residential Internet service program that will use the city’s fiber optics system to create a fast, reliable and affordable connection for its residents.

The program will use some of Vernon’s underused fiber optics cabling system to connect homeowners and renters who would otherwise not have access to fast Internet service, according to city staff.

City officials say they hope to bridge the digital gap for its residents by becoming an Internet Service Provider, creating, and operating a small-scale broadband residential service program. The Internet will be provided to residents through direct fiber optic connections or via a wireless service connection.
The program will be available to all existing and future residences in the city. Read more here.
