Google Fiber’s Las Vegas Expansion Plans

After successfully bringing high-speed internet to Clark County, Google Fiber has set its sights on expanding its network to serve the residents of Las Vegas. 

In February, Google Fiber, Google’s latest internet service offering web surfers high-speed, high-resolution and 8-gigabit fiber optic service, reached Clark County as its first foray into Nevada. Now, Google is ready to expand into a new Nevadan territory by providing high-speed internet to Las Vegas residents. 

Over the past decade, Las Vegas has rapidly grown, attracting new residents and businesses daily. The city is constantly evolving, with new home builders (including the all-new SkyVu by Christopher Homes and shareDOWNTOWN apartment developments by Cherry Development), restaurants and hotels moving in. This inspired Google to try and expand Google Fiber in the area to connect this vibrant community to exceptional internet service, offering symmetrical speeds of up to 8 gigabits per second.

“We’re thrilled to be expanding our geographic reach once again — bringing better internet to more people in more places,” says Dinni Jain, CEO of Google Fiber, in a press release.

In order to offer the service, The Las Vegas City Council must agree to the service and will vote on the agreement on June 5. Once approved, the fiber optic service can begin working on a permit process with city staff and start construction to serve customers by early 2025. In the meantime, Google Fiber is already working on the engineering and design for its potential new territory. 

Following Nevada, Google Fiber aims to expand to Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska and Idaho by 2025. 

“As communities across the country look to expand access to gigabit internet, I’m happy to say that we’re ready to grow alongside them,” says Jain, in a press release. “Our team has spent many months traveling across the country, having conversations with cities looking for the best way to get better internet to their residents and business owners as quickly as possible.”

Las Vegas residents who would like to stay updated on the construction process, service ability in their area or learn more about Google Fiber can sign up online.
