Google Fiber is coming to Council Bluffs, Iowa

  • , city news

When we announced plans to build a fiber network in Omaha, Nebraska, in September, we also started talking to surrounding communities about bringing high speed internet to their residents. We’re happy to share that we’ve taken the first step to doing just that in Council Bluffs, Iowa, which is just over the state line. Council Bluffs joins West Des Moines and Des Moines as the third Google Fiber community in Iowa.

Tonight, the Council Bluffs City Council approved a license agreement that paves the way for us to build a fiber-to-the-home network in their city. We’re getting started on planning and engineering now, with the goal of starting construction late this year and serving our first customers in Council Bluffs next year.

Alphabet has been a part of the Council Bluffs community for over a decade, with the Google data center they announced back in 2007. Google Fiber is looking forward to being part of the next chapter of Council Bluffs’ story, connecting residents to fast, reliable internet for years to come.
