Ontario Ranch: Southern California’s First Gigabit Community
A digital framework and mixed-use facilities offer suburbanites a healthy and connected way of living
Southern California has historically defied traditional city models. The region’s expansive suburban communities and various activity hubs have provided economic and urban amenities for both families and young professionals. Now, SoCal’s largest new master-planned community, Ontario Ranch, is developing a connected gigabit infrastructure, business facilities, and an innovative water replenishment system to add to this dynamic.
Over the next 20 years, 47,000 homes will be built for 162,000 residents in the California city of Ontario. Within 30 minutes from Los Angeles, Orange, and Riverside counties, the community will have access to prime work centers in the region. But while many will still commute the good ol’ fashioned way to work, freelancers and home workers will have greater opportunities thanks to the high-speed Internet that will come with all of the new homes.
