Lightning-fast broadband speeds coming to the City.
Las Cruces, N.M. – Vexus Fiber, a leading fiber service provider, is announcing that it has completed negotiations for a Franchise License Agreement to bring its 100% fiber-to-the-premise network to the City of Las Cruces. The network will provide residents and businesses with multi-gigabit symmetrical speed internet service and more.
The 100% fiber-to-the-premise network will be initially configured at 10-gigabit speeds, to accommodate future growth. Packages that begin at up to one and two gigabits will serve homes and businesses which, in many cases, is ten times what consumers have available now.
“High-speed broadband pipes are the roads and bridges of the next century,” said Mayor Ken Miyagishima. “A key piece to our future is reliable, fast broadband. This network should play a significant part in providing cutting-edge technology that will add to our quality of life, promote entrepreneurship, and foster economic diversification. As the pandemic showed us, our residents need symmetrical bandwidth to their homes in order to facilitate working and learning from home. This network should future-proof our City.”
“We’d like to thank the City of Las Cruces for its cooperation and assistance in allowing us to apply to enter this market to make this development a reality,” said Vexus Fiber CEO Jim Gleason. “Our network focuses on technology that is built to grow with the times, making it a great option for both families and businesses,” said Gleason. “With so many devices now being connected to the internet, customers need reliable and fast internet more than ever. We also offer friendly responsive service to go along with an upgraded broadband experience. Whether you are streaming a movie, using a smart device, working remotely, or gaming, Vexus’ internet will be able to keep up with it all.”
Vexus Fiber hopes to begin construction by early 2023 and connect nearly all homes and businesses to its 100% fiber network. Completion of the network to the region is estimated to take about 24-36 months. Vexus plans to serve the entire City of Las Cruces market with its network. Total investment in the region estimated to be around $50 million. Employment will include close to 100 construction jobs and 35-50 permanent jobs.
