CenturyLink Plans a 1 Gbps FTTP Rollout in Omaha

CenturyLink plans to rollout out fiber-to-the-premises (FTTP) in west Omaha, Nebraksa to deliver downlink Internet speeds of up to 1 Gbps.

CenturyLink begins rolling out its 1 Gbps service next week and expects to have its new fiber network available to all 48,000 customers by early October 2013. The company will evaluate its Omaha 1 Gbps offer before determining further deployments.

"CenturyLink is pleased to offer its Omaha customers ultra-fast broadband speeds up to 1 Gbps to help keep pace with growing broadband demands," said Karen Puckett, CenturyLink chief operating officer. "This demonstrates our commitment to deliver communications solutions that provide our customers with the technology they need to enhance their quality of life, now and into the future."
