Made in Ontario: Inyo Networks powered by OntarioNet

Inyo Networks is a competitive local exchange carrier. The company operates in both California and Nevada to develop fiber-optic networks and specializes in disruptive services by bringing broadband, Gigabit service to residents and businesses.


Partnership with the City of Ontario

Establishing a fiber-optic network in the City of Ontario provides it with a competitive advantage compared to other cities because it attracts high tech businesses into the area. Not only does the Gigabit network retain business, but it also increases the property value of the building. As businesses move to the cloud for applications, they need fast, reliable, affordable bandwidth which the OntarioNet project provides to the city’s businesses, and now residents of Ontario Ranch.

As businesses rely on applications in the cloud, whether it’s uploading or downloading, a fixed connection from fiber at 1,000 megabytes per second really improves efficiency.

Nicolas Keeler, Chief Operating Officer for Inyo Networks, summarizes the partnership between Inyo Networks and the City of Ontario, “OntarioNet is a project the City started working on about ten years ago. And then a few years ago they partnered up with Inyo Networks to bring OntarioNet to reality. What it does is it brings fiber-optic to new residents in Ontario Ranch and it also starts to develop certain business corridors fiber-optic for businesses for retention and growth.”


The Future

Park Place was the first community built as part of Ontario Ranch and one of the first Gigabit communities in Southern California. A lot of hard work between the developers and the City officials have moved this project forward bringing new technology to the residents.

The Gigabit community in Ontario Ranch will be able to use multiple devices such as computers, tablets, gaming consoles, and more all at the same time with no buffering or interference.

“They have passed an ordinance to basically any time there’s street improvements or new buildings being built, to make sure there’s conduit and access out to the OntarioNet project. This will, again, lower the cost of the construction to bring new businesses onto the network,” said Nicolas Keeler about further benefits OntarioNet has for the City.

Currently there are fiber-optics conduits down Fourth Street and Milliken Avenue, which allows customers or businesses in those areas to connect to the internet there. The City of Ontario eventually plans to build a complete ring from the east to the west and the north to south. Through the business communities, the City plans to connect all of the prime business corridors.
