CenturyLink Connects With Colorado Master-Planned Community

CenturyLink and Lumiere Fiber are partnering to bring 1-Gig services to Sterling Ranch, a master-planned community in Colorado being built in the northwest Douglas County area.

CenturyLink, which competes in the market with Comcast, has signed on as the exclusive broadband provider for Sterling Ranch, a 3,400-acre community that will be built out over about 20 years with an estimated 12,000 residenances. CenturyLink said it marks the first time it will bring gigabit service to an entire community in Colorado.

Sterling Ranch is a 3,400-acre, master-planned community that will continue to be built out over approximately 20 years with an estimated 12,000 residences. 

The 1-Gig offering will be offered at a “special rate” of $85 per month, include a wireless access point, with the option to get CenturyLink’s IP-based Prism TV service.

The partnership was announced Monday at a recently opened CenturyLink Solutions Store in Denver. Colorado Senate Majority Leader Mark Scheffel and State Representative Kim Ransom joined CenturyLink and Sterling Ranch execs for the announcement.
