Google Fiber Comes to Queen Creek

The Queen Creek Town Council unanimously approved an ordinance to allow Google Fiber to build a fiber-to-the-home network to serve residents with high speed, high bandwidth internet. This is now the third Arizona location that GFiber has announced it is coming to.

In 2022, Google Fiber kicked off expansion in five new states, and started the ball rolling in Mesa, Arizona. Earlier this year, Chandler City Council also approved GFiber to come to its city.

Construction in Queen Creek is expected to begin later this year with service to residents targeted for early 2025. GFiber’s fiber optic connection is made of glass strands and uses lasers to transmit information at rates close to the speed of light. This means faster upload and download speed across multiple devices and 99.9% reliable connection. 

GFiber service plans start at $70-per-month for one gigabit per second of download and upload speed. There is also a $150-a-month eight gigabits plan. A $30 subsidy is available for those who qualify through the Federal Communications Commission’s Affordable Connectivity Program.

GFiber is an Alphabet company that brings Google Fiber and Google Fiber Webpass internet services to homes and businesses across the United States.

The company’s mission is to deliver fast, reliable, fairly-priced and open internet service — using the best technologies, methods and people to accomplish that. In 2019, the company launched a 2 Gig product. Today, GFiber continues to push the multi-gigabit speeds with its 5 and 8 Gig products and are even testing a 20 Gig product. Their pricing is simple and straightforward. They don’t charge for installation, activation or equipment. Their 1 Gig plan at $70 is the same price it was in 2012. The company is also known for making investments that positively impact the communities it serves, including supporting digital inclusion and digital literacy initiatives.
