Albuquerque to be Connected Through Fiber-Optic Internet
July 18, 2022 – The City of Albuquerque has finalized its license agreement with Vexus Fiber, a Texas-based Internet company, to begin construction on a 100 percent fiber-optic network that will be available everywhere in the city with direct, cutting-edge internet access to all homes and businesses.
“The Keller Administration and the Department of Technology and Innovation have deployed a holistic approach to the broadband needs of our city by leveraging private investment to ensure everyone can get superior internet access - whether it’s a family that doesn’t have internet, or a business that needs faster download and upload speeds,” stated Brian Osterloh, director of the Department of Technology and Innovation. “We recognize that quality internet service is a necessity for our community, and we are committed to collaborating on many efforts to achieve our broadband goals.”
With better performing, future-proof technology, the fiber network will support Albuquerque’s residents and businesses needs now and into the future at prices similar to and even lower than what other internet service providers currently charge. Fiber internet gives users greater bandwidth to carry more information at higher speeds with equal download and upload speeds of 150 Mbps, 400 Mbps, and 1Gig.
