Cox Cable will soon have some competition in West Omaha. CenturyLink announced Wednesday that it is connecting 48,000 homes and businesses with its new high-speed fiber network pilot that it said will deliver Internet speeds of up to one Gigabit per second – 100 times faster than average broadband speeds.

CenturyLink said it is upgrading its existing fiber architecture in west Omaha to create a more robust network for homes and businesses. According to a news release, the upgraded fiber-to-the-premises technology will provide eligible customers with access to some of the fastest upload and download Internet speeds currently available in the U.S.

With speeds up to 1 Gbps, CenturyLink said customers will have the ability to rapidly stream movies, enjoy multiplayer games, and download large multimedia files – all at the same time.

Residential customers within the new west Omaha high-speed fiber footprint will be able to subscribe to 1 Gbps service for $79.95 a month when bundled with other CenturyLink services.

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.
