CenturyLink has for the first time revealed the Denver neighborhoods where it’s offering 1 gigabit Internet service, aiming to show it’s keeping its promise to bring the city ultra-fast residential Internet.
The Monroe, Louisiana-based telecom (Nasdaq: CTL) said 1 gigabit-per-second is being offered in 16 neighborhoods in the city’s core, making it available to a substantial number of homes in each area and expanding the reach of the service every day.
“Our teams are out there working very hard to install it to as many premises as possible,” said Penny Larson, CenturyLink’s lead executive for Colorado.
Gigbit speeds are currently being offered in the Baker, Bonnie Brae, Belcaro, Cole, Congress Park, Corey Merrill, Overland, Park Hill, Platt Park, Rosedale, Stapleton, Washington Park East, Washington Park West, University, University Park and Villa Park neighborhoods, CenturyLink said.
The company announced in August that Denver would be among 13 “Gig cities” nationwide where it would debut ultra-high-speed service that’s 100 times faster than the national average Internet speed.
