After only a few months of construction, the first wave of Mesa residents will have gigabit internet access through Google Fiber

DEEPER DIVE: Phoenix wins Connected City Award

Mesa is the first city in Arizona to have the service, with plans for most of the city to be connected over the next 3 years. Google Fiber’s fiber optic connection is made of glass strands and uses lasers to transmit information at rates close to the speed of light. This means a reliable connection with faster upload and download speed across multiple devices.

On Thursday, March 30, Google Fiber will host a community appreciation event at Renegade Coffee Company, welcoming future customers with an opportunity to come get all their questions about gigabit internet answered with coffee and breakfast provided by Google Fiber. Ashley Church, general manager of the Google Fiber West region, Mesa Vice Mayor Francisco Heredia, as well as members of the Mesa city council will be at the event to answer questions from the media.
