MESA, AZ — Google Fiber is set to bring its fiber-optic internet network to Mesa pending city council approval, the company announced Friday.

The Mesa City Council will vote on measures allowing Google Fiber to place a fiber optic cable network in the public right-of-way, bringing gigabit speed, fiber-to-the-home Internet to Mesa residents.

The city is currently served by Internet network providers Cox Communications and CenturyLink.

If the Fiber License Agreement is approved, Google Fiber will begin engineering and operations efforts immediately and begin construction in Mesa in early 2023. Although it may take several years, residents can get online as soon as end of 2023 when Google Fiber terminates some domains before others, said Ashley Church, general manager of the West region of Google Fiber.

“Mayor Giles, all the staff there, was really, really great about wanting to find a fiber-to-the-home solution for their Mesa residents,” Church said. “Obviously we still have a lot of steps to go before we get to the finish line, but it’s a very good start to the relationship.”
