CenturyLink to expand internet infrastructure in Mesa
PHOENIX — One of the state’s largest network providers is expanding its internet infrastructure in a growing Mesa technology corridor.
CenturyLink is adding more than 90 route miles of fiber in the Gateway area, the city announced Tuesday in a press release.
The expansion will support new data centers and technology companies planned for the area and allow customers to purchase protected network services, according to the release.
“The expansion of CenturyLink’s fiber in the Gateway area will help drive the future of Mesa’s Elliott Road Technology Corridor,” Mesa mayor John Giles said in the release. “Their new capacity opens the door to major tech company expansions and new business, while keeping Mesa at the forefront of innovation.”
The addition will impact the SkyBridge development at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, educational institutions including Arizona State University’s Polytechnic Campus and the newly completed Dignity Health hospital.
The company hasn’t yet announced when the expanded infrastructure will be operational.
