California: Loma Linda requires developer to provide fiber to development

Loma Linda, California -- "The City Council defused a Corona developer's attempt Tuesday night to avoid installing $1 million worth of equipment intended to make his Loma Linda development a 'connected community.' The council denied an appeal by Ryland Homes to waive a requirement to install fiber optic cable and high-tech switching equipment in the 196-home Mission Trails housing development along Mission Road in a northeast section of the city, where more than 4,000 new homes are planned. Loma Linda's connected community initiative is aimed at supplying new homes with sophisticated wiring that would accommodate high-definition television, satellite antennas, phones throughout a house and high-speed Internet connections allowing some computer users to work at home."

The article is unclear as to whether the City was requiring a FTTH (fiber to the home) or FTTC (fiber to the curb) system.
