Welcome to Internet Bandwidth Bliss
Connect with each other and the world around you — FAST — with one-gig+ fiber Internet
At Sterling Ranch, those dreadful, dragging downloads are a thing of the past thanks to the one-gig fiber Internet from CenturyLink supplied to every home. Even when you’re working from home, conducting an important meeting via video conference, and every single kid in your household is streaming Netflix, you will still experience blazing-fast connection speeds.
Fiber Internet is the way of the future, and we’ve intentionally prepared for it. As faster Internet speeds become available — from five- to ten- to twenty-gig and beyond — our fiber-optic network can handle it. DSL and cable Internet providers can’t make that same promise.
Smart City. Smart Homes.
THE BACKBONE OF OUR INTERNET INFRASTRUCTURE
Your all-access pass to the cloud starts underground.
Every glorious gigabit delivered to Sterling Ranch homeowners comes courtesy of an underground fiber-optic network designed by technology powerhouses IBM, Siemens, and Corning. This robust network — which we own — serves as the backbone of our community’s Internet infrastructure.
Owning the fiber network has allowed us to give every home more dedicated bandwidth on its gigabit service. And with loads of dark — currently unused — fiber, we’re set up to accommodate additional services as new technologies become available. Both of these intentionally planned assets prepare us for the future, so as technology continues to evolve, we’re empowered to expand.
“Having a robust fiber network essentially future-proofs a community. The more control a community has over their own fiber network the better. Control over the network allows Sterling Ranch to use the fiber for its best use, instead of taking a back seat to private companies.”
Just how fast is one-gig fiber Internet compared to DSL and cable?
At speeds of one gigabit per second, the fiber Internet available at Sterling Ranch delivers much faster downloads (and uploads) than the more widely available DSL and cable Internet options. The table below by Fastmetrics shows just how fast fiber optic Internet service is. Learn approximate times to download files, songs, movies, videos, TV shows, and audiobooks compared to common broadband speeds. (Please note, all download speeds shown are estimates. Speeds will vary depending on your Internet connection and configuration.)
“Working from home, I do need to have access to the Internet and be able to have high speeds. So, having that ultimately coming with the house was really appealing. . . . The one-gig Internet has been one of the most important things to us — not just for work, but also — for everything in our home. We have to have high speeds to be able to have our TV on in multiple rooms, have people on the wifi when they’re over, etc.”
