CenturyLink – fast Internet to Sterling Ranch

September 09, 2016 / Posted in Denver, Developments, Real Estate

The Internet service, with speeds up to 1 gigabit per second, will be offered at a special rate of $85  per month, with a wireless access point included and the opportunity to add Prism® TV and other CenturyLink services at an additional charge.

“CenturyLink has one of the largest gigabit service offerings in the country, and we are proud to expand that service, with speeds up to 1 gigabit per second, to Sterling Ranch,” said Penny Larson, vice president of operations in Colorado for CenturyLink.

“Beginning with our service to its first residents, we look forward to our continued partnership as the community grows to more than 12,000 residences,” Larson said.

Beyond delivering some of the fastest residential Internet speeds available today, Sterling Ranch invested in its fiber-optic network to support the community’s intelligent infrastructure.

Fiber provides both the connectivity and flexibility to adapt to future technologies, officials said.


Sterling Ranch, in northwest Douglas County, will be getting fast internet service from CenturyLink.

“Sterling Ranch’s vision to elevate their infrastructure to give residents forward-thinking digital experiences like eHealth, distance learning, community engagement and smart home control presents a unique opportunity for CenturyLink to deliver an exceptional broadband service offering speeds up to 1 gigabit per second to an entire community,” said Chris Denzin, vice president national field and partner sales for CenturyLink.

“We look forward to working with like-minded developers who see gig speeds and fiber as a path to enhance their communities,” Denzin added.

The partnership was officially announced at the recently opened CenturyLink Solutions Store 930 15th St. in Denver.

Colorado Senate Majority Leader Mark Scheffel and State Representative Kim Ransom, who attended the announcement, expressed the importance of connectivity and technology integration in community development.

Community leaders attending the announcement represented, among others, the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, Northwest Douglas County Economic Development Corp., One Roxborough, Roxborough Business Association, and South Metro Denver Chamber of Commerce.


Harold Smethills, Jim Yates, Brock Smethills, Penny Larson and Chris Denzin were among those who unveiled the CenturyLink Internet service plan at Sterling Ranch.

With site work currently underway and dry utilities including fiber being installed this fall, seven homebuilders will soon break ground on model homes in Sterling Ranch’s first of nine villages.

Providence Village will ultimately include a new K-8 school with input on design and curriculum from Vanderbilt University, a church, a civic center, a recreation center, and 85 acres of open space, as well as a series of local parks.

The pedestrian-friendly community will connect 30 miles of internal trails, open space, two adjacent state parks and three regional parks.

Sterling Ranch will be built out over the next 20 years.
