CenturyLink today announced it will begin offering gigabit Internet on Monday to parts of west Omaha. With the installation—the company said 48,000 customers will have access to the new speeds by October—Omaha will become one of less than a dozen U.S. cities to offer the high-speed network, according to the Omaha World-Herald. “We’re trying to create entrepreneurs,” Danny Pate, CenturyLink’s vice president and general manager for Nebraska, told the World-Herald. “We are really helping to raise the visibility of the technical capabilities of Omaha.” The region and nation’s most heralded gigabit internet project, Google Fiber, began installation in Kansas City last November. — Source: Omaha World-Herald
