Where in America Can You Get Gigabit Internet (Right Now)?

A huge thank you to everyone who has commented and contributed to this list since its inception. This is likely going to be the last time I update this post. 50 cities is just a great round number and a great place to stop.

Gigabit internet is awesome. And elusive.

Gigabit ethernet speed is equal to 1,000,000,000 bits per second or 1,000 Mbps. For comparison: “fast ethernet” is considered to be 100 Mbps, which is still much faster than standard internet service that’s normally 10 Mbps (like the kind you’d get from Time Warner or Comcast cable), or even 3 Mbps which are found at the lower & cheaper (and most common) tiers of internet service.

gigabit-cities-americaWhile such crazy fast Gigabit connections are available to governments, educational institutions, and large businesses, it’s difficult to get such a fast connection for regular public use. For instance Santa Monica, CA has a 10 Gigabit network, but that’s mostly allocated for business use. There are a few places in America, however, where gigabit internet connections are starting to pop up – and ones that are accessible to regular internet surfers like you and me. This post is an attempt to hunt down all the places in America that have such connections (or are currently getting them installed).

A lot of cities across America are taking matters into their own hands and starting to install their own Gigabit networks as part of economic development initiatives and as way to attract the tech industry and companies that can use that advantage for competitive purposes.

It’s an exciting time to see so many communities across the US fighting to deploy next generation Gigabit networks to help make America a leader in high speed connectivity.

The following is a collection of cities and places that have gigabit connections inside the US:

Currently Available

1. Kansas City, KS / MO

Google Fiber – After a long bidding process, Google selected Kansas City and has now begun deploying the first major consumer-based Gigabit network in the US.

2. Chattanooga, Tennessee

  • To your list, you can add (via municipal networks), the cities of Bristol, Tennessee (BTES); Morristown, Tennessee; and Burlington, Vermont. All are advertising citywide (or very nearly citywide in the case of Burlington) availability of a gig.

    • Brett Gordon

      Thanks for letting me know about those 3 cities – I’ve added them to the list.

      • Kent Garrison

        Lincoln NE also plans gig internet.

  • Steel Yang

    I’d also like to add Minneapolis, MN as a city in which you can get Gigabit Internet. It is provided by a company called US Internet.

    • Brett Gordon

      I didn’t find any consumer plans being offered at a gig on their website or any information about it online. If you have a link that talks about it, please post it & I’ll look into it.

      • They have been running fiber and offering gigabit since 2010.

        • The website didn’t appear in my first post, but it’s fiber.usinternet.com

          • Brett Gordon

            I found it and updated. Thanks.

  • Matt Wells

    Excellent research. Thank you for taking the time to publish this

  • Tom Henderson

    You’ve missed plenty of them. I would suggest a more thorough research job. There are tiny cities (Loma Linda CA) to huge ones. Not one of them has 100% GB coverage, but many are trying hard.

  • Seattle has Gigabit

    Hey Max, Seattle has a few residential gigabit providers. This is one of them: http://www.condointernet.net/

    • Brett Gordon

      Thanks for the heads up – I added that information to the post.

    • Mike

      Link to where they services residential areas: https://secure.fibersphere.net/gigabit.php

      • Mike

        They list the costs as 80 a month but at least for me it’s less. I’m paying 35 through the HOA (everyone in the neighborhood is required to have the base 100mbps line), and an extra 40 a month directly to the company for the gigabit upgrade.

  • Noah Davis

    You can add Wilson North Carolina to the list of gigabit internet speed. Greenlight, a city managed cable/phone/internet service provider has now added gigabit availability

  • Frank Bonner

    Also, C Spire Fiber. http://www.cspire.com/fiberhome They have 9 cities currently listed for 1GB Fiber

  • C Spire is rolling out Gigabit Fiber To The Home to 9 cities in Mississippi at this time. All of the information concerning these cities can be found on our webpage http://www.cspire.com/fiberhome.

  • John

    FYI: gigabit is not equal to 1,048,576 bits per second or 1,024 Mbps.
    1 gigabit per second = 1,000,000,000 bits per second = 1000 Mbps since it is a transfer rate.

  • John Oberst

    The cities of Monmouth and Independence Oregon have had fiber to the premises (FTP) gigabit internet available since 2007 or so. I know this because I am the Mayor of Monmouth. The two cities joined together to build (and own) MINet Fiber when none of the national telecoms would even entertain the notion of bringing us broadband… not even DSL. So we did it ourselves. Please google minetfiber.com to learn more.

    • Justin Mirsky

      Hi John!

      I think it is great that you have a fiber to the prem solution in your city. I would really love to hear more about the MINet solution. I live in a suburb of Louisville, KY and I would absolutely love to look into proposing an idea/solution like this to our city council. Please let me know if you are open to speaking about this.

      Cheers,

      Justin MIrsky

    • John,

      I checked out minetfiber.com… There’s no mention anywhere on the entire site of gigabit internet. 100Mbps is clearly shown as the fastest option available. I’m actually looking to move back to Oregon after 6 years in California and work remotely… If I’m missing something and you currently offer 1Gbps, I’ll move there. If not, I’ll go closer to Portland (2Gbps). Do you have any more information about this?

    • For those who are considering this, Monmouth and Independence offer expensive gigabit to select business-only locations in the city, NOT for residential customers. They offer 100mbps for residential, for more Google Fiber charges. All this is great, but I figured I’d clear this up as I was hoping to move there and work from home over gigabit fiber. Not gonna happen. Portland area is still the only one providing gigabit+ internet.

  • We have just started to deploy Gigabit Fiber to the home and business in Smithville, Texas and La Grange, Texas.

  • Reagan

    Can anyone help me find a good internet for gaming online? I dont want the standard 10mbps or even 30mbps. I would like 75-100mbps at the least but I cannot find anything in Texas?! I am young (13) and I am trying to find a job to pay for some kind of internet but of course I am too young. My parents wont buy internet or even cable and I am using my neighbors wifi to play games on my computer. If anyone could help me then it would be great!

  • Mike Kovacs

    My company, CableRunner International, developed a unique deployment method to help major urban city areas deploy fiber in a fraction of the time & cost of traditional methods. Check it out at http://www.cablerunner-international.com and contact me directly if I can offer any insight as to what we have been doing around the globe.

  • Nancy

    Wondering where I can bail to from SF and still have high speed connectivity.
    Looking to hike/bike/paddle as far away from civilization as possible and still

  • w00ds

    In the bay are there are a few cities a company called Paxio (www.paxio.com) which provides 1gbit up/down speeds for $138.50/month. I pay for my friend’s internet @ his house in Emeryville and run a half rack server there.

    http://stage.results.speedtest.comcast.net/result/511584024.png

  • Russellville, Kentucky has the only 1-Gig service provider in the state. The municipally-owned electric company has fiber to every residential and business customer in this rural town of 7,000 people.

  • IITGuy

    While strides are being made across our nation, I think it is noteworthy that Kansas City is playing catch-up to the infrastructure Chattanooga already has in place and continues to improve. Chattanooga is host to many international developers in what they are calling the Gig-Tank as experimentation with applications across this speed is underway. Don’t keep drinking the Google cool-aid. Chattanooga was the first gigabit city in the world.

  • Matthew Walker

    You can add Diamond City Arkansas. We have Fiber and i have a Gig Connect through NATCO. Its not advertised for residential but if you request it they will oblige.

  • Looks like you missed Canby, Oregon. Canby Telcom has been offering gigabit service for years, and not just run of the mill GPON, they have active E (symmetrical gig service 1,000/1,000) at $99.95/mo. without contract (business and residential pricing is identical). I know this article was posted in 2013, but years prior Canby Tel was deploying fiber and currently has a little over 50% of their subscriber base on their fiber network.

  • Please add Mount Pleasant, Alma Gaylord, and Clare Michigan to your list via Winn Telecom based out of Mount Pleasant Michigan. We turn up this week!!

  • Diedrich

    Please update your information for East Lansing, Michigan. I’m not sure what Google search you compiled your information from but your source is inaccurate. East Lansing and Lansing, Michigan are getting gigabit Internet from Lightspeed (golightspeed.com). You can see their installation status on their site. So, no, DTN is not the provider. In fact, DTN is an evil property management company who has spread like a virus in the Lansing and East Lansing neighborhoods and they have just been lucky enough to be in one of the completed zones to “provide” gigabit Internet to their tenants.

  • Tanner

    Midcontinent Communications will be offering gigabit to all subscribers in Grand Forks, ND, Fargo, ND, Bismarck, ND, and Sioux Falls, SD in 2016. http://www.midcogig.com

  • Brett Gordon

    I updated this article according to my latest research as of December 12, 2015.
    If you see any cities I’ve missed, please leave a comment and I’ll make an update! Thanks!

  • Brett Gordon

    Thank you.
    I’ve added it to the list.

  • Hank

    Bluffton Indiana provided by Adamswells internet offers 1GIG down and 1GIG up. Can you add that one to your list. Thank you

  • Brett,

    After 2+ years you should update this list. Gig.U and GigabitSquared have not panned out. Not sure about the others.

    BTW, I was searching on Chattanooga fiber pricing and found your link on the first page. When I started reading it, it said it was today’s date, but then the comments indicated it was over 2 years old. But I see you have been responding to people lately.

    Michael

    • Brett Gordon

      Hey Michael,

      This article was indeed first posted 2+ years ago.
      I’m in the process of giving the whole site a “reboot”. There’s a lot of new content on the way in the coming weeks.
      Clearly there was some outdated info leftover here. I appreciate you pointing that out.. My goal is to get this page completely up to date and accurate, and then keeping it that way.

  • Maison Pulaski

    You can add good old Boron California 93516 population 2500 (not a typo) to the list. Race Communications has installed Gigabyte internet for $60 a month (my actual connection averages ~500mbps hard wire and ~150mbps over WiFi)

  • Opelika, Alabama’s Opelika Power Services ha been providing a Gig since October 2013.

  • Opelika is Alabama’s First Gig City.

    • Brett Gordon

      Thank you June and David for letting me know. I’ve added Opelika to the list.

      • Sam

        Opelika has 1 gig if you want to pay high price for it. It’s between $300 – 500, I believe. No regular Joe can afford that.

    I wanted to note that we have been offering a 1 Gig package for some time now. We have been operating a FTTH system for well over 10 years now. At one time we were the single largest FTTH deployment in the states. 🙂
    Here is a great link.

      Hi Karin,
      On the MINET website I see speeds of up to 100 Mbps listed.
      Do you have a link offering gig speeds by chance?

  • Karol S

    You can add the Camp Douglas New Lisbon area in Wisconsin. Lynxx Net has begun offering symmetrical 1 gig service for $109.95/month in the area.

  • Maybe I missed it but it seems like you’ve left Xfinity/Comcast off of they list. They’ve been providing this for a while and are now introducing 2GB service. While its a pretty penny it, if the list is impartial then it does deserve to be noted for residential service. You can see the full list of states being offered the service here: http://www.xfinity.com/multi-gig-offers.html

    When I cam to America as a first generation immigrant back in 1990, the US was at the cutting edge of everything. Now, not so much.

    1 Gbps internet speeds are popping up, sure…. but finally. Someone like myself who does high-performance dependent internet ‘stuff’ (high-def multimedia streaming, gaming, interactive web conferencing, etc.), really needs top-tier speeds… and my home’s 150 mbps connection is WAY more than fast enough to accomplish everything I need to do… but just for the sake of argument: global speed vs. cost

    My cable internet is great. Fast, reliable, and did I say fast? 150 mbps… didn’t think I’d ever need this much speed a few years ago. However, I am paying 90 bucks/month for INTERNET ALONE…

    1 Gbps internet has been available for home, residential users in Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan, some European countries like Sweden, Switzerland, Norway, etc. etc. for quite some time now… and let’s just compare cost. You can get 1 gbps internet in South Korea or Japan for somewhere in the range of $20-25 per month! So essentially I’m paying 4x as much for internet that is 7x slower here in the states. None of these areas in the US that are selling 1gbps internet (or are about to) are charging less than $200!

    Man… butting into other nations’ affairs and fighting in useless, unwinnable wars has really retarded our stronghold as the world’s premier superpower.

  • Citizens Fiber In Westmoreland County Pa

  • Braden Lake

    We receive gigabit service in Rosenberg, TX through AT&T Uverse. I have had it for about 6 months. Not everyone can access it, only those with newer houses that have had fiber infrastructure. We were fortunate.

  • Rocket Fiber is a new Detroit, Michigan based Internet service provider.

  • Kathy

    Twin Valley Communications based out of Clay Center KS launched gigabit Internet last fall with plans to launch in 14 other surrounding towns in the summer of 2016. There are also many other ILEC providers across the US that currently offer Gigabit. You can review many of those here http://www.ntca.org/awards-recognition-programs/certified-gig-capable-providers.html and this isn’t counting to companies who have not applied for the award.

    From your research, including the ILEC communities, do you have a rough estimation of what percentage of consumers in the nation have access to Gigabit services?

    • Brett Gordon

      Thanks Kathy. I just quoted you in the post because I couldn’t have summed it up better myself.

      I don’t have any answer to your question unfortunately. Gigabit access is growing almost by the day, and I believe most people will have access within 5 years.

  • Russell

    ValuNet FIBER in Emporia, KS provides Gigabit service.

    Hey Bret, I am searching for gig internet in southern Florida, Stuart, Palm City, etc., but found nothing. Do you know of any gig provider in the area, even in the future?

    Thanks.

  • Eldorado

    What do you know about Cable One’s Giga One rollouts? Is it really gigabit service?

  • Just me

    I’m not a customer but it looks like City Link Fiber is offering 1Gbps in Albuquerque, New Mexico for $80/mo with no throttling or caps

  • Fergs

    High Point North Carolina… North State Internet.

  • Nick

    The small town of Rangely Colorado is in process of adding 1gb speeds this summer.

  • Thanks for this very helpful and interesting list. I was looking for perspective on how unusual it is to have Gigabit residential service in sparsely populated rural areas, because we are about to get it in the Town of Chestertown (pop. 5,000) and Kent County, Maryland (pop. 21,000), through FTS Fiber and its partnership with service provider Think Big. We can’t wait to see how it helps local businesses and entrepreneurs who want to live in a beautiful small-town or Chesapeake Bay setting and still have professional-grade internet.

  • We have fiber in all of our exchanges here at Endeavor Communications. Little towns like Cloverdale, Coatesville, Eminence, Fillmore, Monrovia, Reelsville, Coal City, Poland, Bowling Green, and Atlanta Indiana. We are finishing this project on Monday.

    DMEA (Delta Montrose Electric Association) is rolling it out in Delta and Montrose counties of western Colorado. It was officially introduced a couple of weeks ago and we are super excited. We have been so under-served when it comes to decent internet access. It’s coming in phases, so we’re still going to have to wait a while.

  • Annie

    Looking for a good list of hotels offering 1gig.

  • john

    Brentwood CA 94513 has the gb network now, goodbye comcast!

  • Elaine Smith

    Century Link is not good in my corner of the world. They say that my area gets only 1.49 gigs and they can’t improve that for me. I, as well as many others in my vicinity, hate Century Link ……but we have no other carrier to go to. My neighbor dropped Century Link and has gone with Verizon internet. My husband and I may follow her lead.

  • JJ

    Men are laying fiber optic wire in Beaverdam, VA. They say it is for CenturyLink customers. No word on when it will be available.

  • Justin D

    Lakeside, Texas is serviced bt AT&T’s Gigapower internet

  • Please consider adding Kent County, MD to you map. Construction of our county-wide fiber network has begun with gigabit capable ISP services available upon phase completion as soon as Fall 2016. You can stay informed on the progress at http://fiber.kentcounty.com

  • Jason Buchek

    Mediacom in Springfield mo offers new gigabit to the home but it is $1450 month and a three year commitment. So pretty much makes it only for mid tier and higher business accounts

  • Palazzo del Sol located on Fisher Island in Florida is one of the few brand new buildings to offer Gigabit internet. For more information on Fisher Island 305-535-6071 Kimberly can help with questions regarding sales for Palazzo Del Sol and all of the amenities for this great new project
