LAS CRUCES, N.M. (January 25, 2024) – Las Cruces will soon have access to some of the fastest internet in the country, as construction is scheduled to begin next week on the first neighborhoods to get access to Vexus Fiber’s high-speed fiber optic internet in the city. Service will soon to be available for the first 400 homes.

Construction begins in the first neighborhoods for Vexus Fiber coverage, in the central area of the city. Over the next three years, Vexus Fiber will build a network of fiber-to-the-home and fiber-to-the-business high speed internet for over 44,000 homes in Las Cruces. Vexus Fiber will
connect the fiber lines directly to the homes and businesses that sign up for service. This fiber-to-the-premise approach is a more reliable, robust and secure network when compared to other networks.

The company is scheduled to offer various Internet service packages with speeds up to 5 Gigs (5000 Mbps). The service is symmetrical, with equal speeds for uploading and downloading. Customers can sign up right away and service will be available by the end of March for those initial neighborhoods.

“It’s an exciting time for high-speed internet,” said Jim Gleason, CEO of Vexus Fiber. “We are planning an aggressive schedule for construction and installation for several phases over the next few months. Las Cruces will soon have some of the fastest internet service available anywhere. We are proud to offer a new choice in internet providers as well. Our mission is to transform Las Cruces into a gigacity, delivering high-tech, future-proof fiber internet to the area. With a 10 Gigabit network designed to adapt and evolve with our customers, we are excited to serve the growing needs of the community and enable a reliable future for all.”Vexus Fiber has committed a privately funded investment of $50 million to the Las Cruces area to provide high-speed broadband to the city. This will create 50-100 construction jobs and 30-50 permanent jobs for ongoing service. The company is a leading provider of high-speed fiber optic internet and part of the nation’s largest independently owned 100% fiber optic network provider.

“This advancement is great news for the city,” said Mayor Eric Enriquez. “I am very excited to see Vexus Fiber bring superfast broadband to enhance the speed, technology, and innovation to Las Cruces where all our residents will benefit.”As home and business needs grow for broadband use, access to a high-speed connection becomes more critical and a fiber network delivers those speeds. For example, at 500 Mbps, a 10-hour audiobook will download in 4 seconds and a two-hour HD movie will download in 44 seconds. For homeowners who chose the One Gig option, the movie would download in 22 seconds.

Business customers will have access to data connections scalable up to multi-gig speeds with TeleCloud hosted communication solutions which bring together phone, chat and video conferencing services in one.

“We’re meeting the need for speed and reliability that people now require for work, education, and entertainment,” said Kevin Folk, Vice President of Vexus Fiber. “For Las Cruces, this is just the beginning.”

As construction continues throughout the community, residents in construction areas will receive 30-days advance notice via mail, and if you’ve signed up at, you will also receive an email about construction activity in your neighborhood. Vexus provides additional messaging, such as yard signs, to notify residents of when construction is beginning in their neighborhood. Vexus crews are marked by ID tags and branded vehicles.
