Beverly Hills Fiber was established by the Beverly Hills City Council to provide reliable, cost-effective, high-speed broadband. Fast internet is a matter of necessity in the global economy and of particular importance to the leading edge entertainment, healthcare, hospitality and retail companies that do business in Beverly Hills.
Beverly Hills Fiber will be offered to every premise in the city, including multi-family units and businesses.
Beverly Hills Fiber is a city-owned and operated utility providing high-speed broadband fiber service to residents and businesses. Initially, 1 gigabit-per-second internet speeds will be offered which are significantly faster - at least twice as fast - as service currently available.
The City Council approved this initiative in February 2017. The project has a 5-year (2017-2021) timeline from ground-breaking to service online throughout the city.
The city will be divided into 100+ micro-neighborhoods so construction and installation teams can get in and out as quickly as possible. The first step involves laying and enabling fiber and this happens on city-owned streets, and adjacent sidewalks and parkways. The 2nd step in construction is taking the fiber from the street into the homes and businesses of those who choose Beverly Hills Fiber service.
In contrast to a publicly held commercial provider, as a city-owned and operated utility we are under no financial burden with respect to profitability other than to ultimately operate Beverly Hills Fiber as a break-even entity. Businesses will be offered an array of tiered plans at additional cost.
- One of the goals of the Beverly Hills Fiber build-out is to minimize disruption for our residents and businesses.
- We are segmenting the city into grids of some 100+ micro-neighborhoods.
- By focusing construction within a smaller footprint, we can get in and out more quickly with less irritation to residents.
We want to make it easy for our residents and businesses to access timely information about Beverly Hills Fiber throughout the 2017-2021 construction and installation project timeframe.

A two-part construction process will be implemented in each of 100+ micro-neighborhoods in the city.
The first step involves laying and enabling fiber and this happens on city-owned streets, and adjacent sidewalks and parkways. Central, shared, city-owned switching-boxes will be installed during this initial phase of construction.
The 2nd step in construction is taking the fiber from the street into the homes and businesses of those who choose Beverly Hills Fiber service.
What we’ve learned from our fiber partners and the experienced construction and installation teams we’ve hired, is that every single premise presents different issues, requiring custom solutions. This reflects the ‘exciting’ diversity of home and commercial construction techniques! We’re committed to getting in and out of every residence as quickly as possible, but there’s no one answer about how long construction will take.
A number of outside consultants, who have implemented similar fiber installations with success, were vetted and retained and they report to Information Technology.
