Centennial FiberWorks Schedule of Rates
The City of Centennial's FiberWorks initiative is offering dark fiber leases on its 50-mile fiber network for the City’s businesses, Internet service providers (ISPs), community anchor institutions and government entities. Centennial has already executed multiple dark fiber leases ranging from one year to 20 years and is looking to further utilize its network through dark fiber leases in the community.

Extraterritorial Customer Service Fee
Extraterritorial use of the City Fiber Network by a lessee is not permitted without written City consent provided to the lessee in advance of lessee’s offering of service outside of the City’s corporate boundaries. When the City consents to the extraterritorial use of the City’s Fiber Network, the lessee shall pay to the City, on an annual basis, an extraterritorial customer service fee of Five Dollars and Fifty Cents ($5.50) per residential subscriber and/or Eleven Dollars ($11.00) per business subscriber assessed to such subscriber on a monthly basis. The extraterritorial customer service fee shall increase by three percent (3%) each year (e.g., in 2022 the fee will be $5.67 per residential subscriber and $11.33 per business subscriber per month).
The City may assess a connection charge or fee for any lessee connection of lessee-owned fiber to the City’s Fiber Network. Such connection charge or fee shall be assessed based on the City’s contracted engineering firm’s rates on a cost-plus basis of ten percent (10%).
The rates listed above serve as a framework for offering prices to both the private and public sectors for lease of the City’s Fiber Network. However, all leases may be subject to individual negotiation.
