Homes and business in Los Angeles will soon be living in the digital fast lane. As Ars Technica reports, Los Angeles plans to issue a request for proposals that would build a massive citywide network that would deliver last-mile fiber connectivity to every home and business within the city. The city is projecting that such an ambitious project will cost between $3 billion to $5 billion but will be worth it to attract more businesses to the area that want to take advantage of world-class Internet services. The new fiber network will offer all Los Angeles residents free broadband service that ranges from 2Mbps to 5Mbps that they can then upgrade to different speeds in a tier-based pricing system.
