Lakewood will become the first city in Colorado to receive Google Fiber’s fiber-to-the-building network, expanding the competitive market for high-speed broadband service for the city’s residents and companies. Lakewood joins a select group of cities nationwide where Google Fiber has deployed its 100% fiber optic internet service.

As the pandemic demonstrated with the shift to more virtual work, school and commerce, high-speed internet service is vital to how the world functions today, and Lakewood has been working to bring providers to the city to expand options and ensure competitive pricing for the community. Google Fiber service is capable of delivering gigabit and even multi-gigabit speeds.

“Everyone needs to be connected today whether it’s for school or work, and I think adding Google Fiber in Lakewood is a great step in the right direction,” said Mayor Adam Paul. “Internet connectivity is as important as having water and electricity, and we need to ensure we have robust systems in place to serve our residents and our businesses.”

The city’s agreement with Google Fiber stems from a 2019 vote in which Lakewood residents authorized the city to explore options to improve the city’s broadband offerings.

“Everyone deserves access to fast, reliable internet, and Google Fiber is working to connect folks in Lakewood to work, school and each other by providing great internet and customer service,” said Google’s Southwest Region General Manager Sasha Petrovic. “We are looking forward to serving the people of Lakewood and plan to offer service as broadly as possible throughout the community.”

Google Fiber will begin construction of the new fiber optic network in the city’s rights of way and easements in 2023, with service available as segments of the network are completed.

The city has a resource center at for residents to learn more from answers to frequently asked questions, including contact information for the company. This center will be updated as more information becomes available.
