CenturyLink Brings 1 Gigabit Fiber Service to Las Vegas

  • CenturyLink
MONROE, LA - CenturyLink announced that it will expand its fiber network pilot to Las Vegas, enabling Internet speeds of up to 1 Gbps. CenturyLink's enhanced fiber network will deliver this ultra-fast broadband technology to residential and small business customers in select Las Vegas neighborhoods beginning this fall.

CenturyLink launched its first 1 Gbps fiber network in Omaha, Neb. in May 2013. The company expects to have the targeted homes and business in Omaha connected with its FTTP technology by the end of October. The company will also use FTTP technology to deliver some of the fastest Internet speeds available in the United States to select homes and small businesses in Las Vegas. With this highly advanced service, customers will be able to download a high-definition movie in seconds and stream it from multiple devices, gain instant access to cloud services and applications on demand, and download or upload large multimedia files-all at the same time.

CenturyLink's 1 Gbps service will have a direct connection to the company's recently upgraded 100 Gbps global network. This next-generation fiber technology also enables CenturyLink to provide a symmetrical service, meaning customers can download and upload information at identical speeds of up to 1 Gbps.

CenturyLink will make its 1 Gbps service available to residents in its first Las Vegas community this fall and intends to launch the service in additional communities into 2014. Small business customers in select locations will also be eligible for 1 Gbps service in early 2014.
