SAN DIEGO — Wyyerd Fiber is the new fiber internet service provider in the South Bay.
"Internet can be delivered in many ways. Fiber is the future proof. It’s the latest and greatest technology and offers the highest capacity," said Wyyerd California's President and General Manager, Dennis Kyle. "We aim to find areas that are under served. Chula Vista and National City is where the bigger guys have not necessarily targeted to upgrade their networks."
He says Wyyerd Fiber internet is fast and reliable and they have plans to expand to other local areas.
"We expect to expand to east San Diego, Lemon Grove, La Mesa, Imperial Beach, San Ysidro and Otay Mesa," said Kyle.
He says Wyyerd has provided more than 200 jobs locally. They are also working on setting up a program to provide internet for lower income communities.
"We see ourselves in a position to bring to the under served communities a new technology that will survive for the duration and provide enhanced services, speed and capability," said Kyle.
They will finish installing fiber for a new housing development near Bluestone Circle in National City sometime this year.
For everyone else living in National City and Chula Vista, construction is already complete. Now, anyone living in those areas can sign up for services on their website.
