$20 Million 100% Fiber Optic Network to Go Live Early Next Year

LUBBOCK, TX – Vexus Fiber, a leading provider of high-speed fiber optic internet and part of the nation’s largest independently owned 100 percent fiber optic network provider announced construction has begun on their 100% fiber optic network in Denison. Privately funded by Vexus, the network will introduce symmetrical multi-gigabit speed internet service to more than 12,000 homes and businesses.

“We have been working hard for over a year with the City to get plans in place. We are extremely excited to announce that we’ve broken ground in Denison,” said Jim Gleason, CEO of Vexus Fiber. “We are building a future-proof network here that will help foster additional growth and economic development for the area.”

Several residents and businesses have already expressed interest in services by pre-registering at vexusfiber.com/connect. The first areas under construction are Southeast of the city.

“We plan to start installations in these areas in the next 90 days,” said Jeff Kennaley, Director of Operations. “We expect construction to be complete throughout Denison in about 12 – 18 months.”

Vexus is committed to providing quality, reliable, local service to their customers. They are bringing and connecting people to a 100% fiber optic network that is built for all their internet needs. This network will offer symmetrical gigabit speeds as well as fiber phone service. Businesses will have access to data connections customizable at multi-gig speeds to meet their specific needs, and TeleCloud-hosted communication solutions that bring together phone, chat and video conferencing services in one.

“Internet is a service that is reshaping communities for the better. Vexus’ fiber optic high-speed internet has the power to push economic development forward,” added Bill Flowers, Vice President of West Texas. “With our local call center in Lubbock and continuous support, Vexus is a community member and partner. Vexus will deliver first-class customer service and overall experience. We are excited to bring our network to the area and help make Denison a thriving Gigacity.”

Vexus is powered by a 10-gig network with symmetrical speeds which means customers receive equal upload and download speeds. Residential customers will enjoy ultra-fast streaming, gaming and seamless remote work and learning experiences. Businesses receive a significant edge in the market with capabilities to process and transmit data rapidly, meet customer demands efficiently and seamless operations.

“Texas is our home and we’re proud to bring fiber-optic internet to communities across the state,” added Kennaley. “We like to say, ‘if it ain’t Vexus, it ain’t Texas,’ because we embody everything we love about Texas and the communities we serve.”

The network construction project will bring around 50 jobs to the area and once complete will provide around a dozen permanent positions in Denison. Vexus plans to open a retail location in Denison next year, as well.
