We’re here to make the world spin faster.
Atherton Fiber is community-driven open access and all fiber optic. Atherton Fiber brings 10 Gigabit fiber service to homes, schools, and public servants in Atherton.
Like many Atherton residents, Mike Farmwald was frustrated with the poor quality of Internet service offered by providers like AT&T and Comcast. The fact that there were no other providers to choose from in his area only made matters worse.
Rather than settle for a substandard Internet experience, in 2015 Farmwald and several neighbors created Atherton Fiber, a public-private collaboration that is delivering a resilient, next-generation fiber network capable of delivering the fastest Internet speeds available.
To provide clear and honest communications, responsive service, and innovative technology.
To fundamentally change how fiber infrastructure is delivered and create a market free of barriers.
To build open infrastructure that gives access to providers and choice to end users.
With Atherton Fiber, tomorrow will be
through future-proof, adaptable fiber
through choices that benefit all
due to smart, shared infrastructure
with transparent, scalable technology
Atherton Fiber is part of the Open5G network, which is working to build cutting-edge fiber networks for localities throughout California and beyond.
