CenturyLink is expanding its fiber network to more than 18,000 households in Spokane, the company announced Tuesday.
The company said in a news release it is adding fiber-to-the-home internet service with gigabit speeds in areas of the city core as well as in north Spokane and the South Hill.
Construction on the fiber network is expected to be complete by early 2021, the company said.
CenturyLink completed a fiber-optic construction project last year that brought gigabit internet service to 300,000 homes and businesses in areas of Spokane; Boulder, Colorado; and Tucson, Arizona.
“As we change the way we learn and work right now in the U.S., CenturyLink sees, more than ever, the importance of reliable high-speed internet access,” Maxine Moreau, CenturyLink’s president of consumer markets, said. “We expect to continue building and expanding fiber to provide those essential connections to families and businesses.”
