In 2018, the City of Centennial completed construction of a 432-fiber strand backbone that connects key City sites and passes other community anchor institutions.

The completion of the backbone also enables both existing and new broadband providers to tie into the new infrastructure with the goal of providing better and more competitive choices and services for the City's residents.

In 2013, Centennial voters overwhelmingly supported the City's intention to create a new fiber broadband infrastructure for the City.  The passing of ballot question 2G allowed the City to indirectly provide services through competitive and nonexclusive partnerships with private businesses.  In 2016, City Council allocated $5.7 million to implement the City's Fiber Master Plan and begin constructing the 50-mile fiber backbone.  As of November 2018, the construction is complete and the fiber backbone is being implemented.

Key Accomplishments

  • Completed more than 50 miles of construction.
  • Installed a fiber facility to securely safeguard and manage the fiber backbone.
  • Executed a 20-year lease and O&M agreement with Ting Fiber and have provisioned a buffer tube of fiber for Ting’s use on the Central Fiber Ring.
  • Executed a lease agreement with Avata Networks to provide broadband services to businesses and residents.
  • Executed an IGA with Cherry Creek School District for lease of fiber on the Central Fiber Ring to connect two facilities.
  • Executed a lease agreement with SEAKR Engineering to provide connectivity between two facilities.

As the City utilizes its fiber backbone and continues to develop partnership opportunities, City Council has created a Fiber Commission to oversee Centennial FiberWorks, a program to implement the City’s fiber backbone.
