The time is here! Google Fiber is now available for the first section of the West Des Moines network. Starting today, residents in certain areas of the northeast side of the city can sign up for Google Fiber internet service in their homes and businesses.
Google Fiber is very proud to have been part of this project from the beginning, standing (virtually) with the City of West Des Moines as the mayor announced the city’s commitment to helping residents get quality internet by building a city-wide conduit network. With this conduit network, the city made it easier for internet service providers to deliver services to the citizens of West Des Moines, while reducing the number of construction projects in the city’s right of way. As the anchor tenant on the network, Google Fiber is excited to help the city increase choice and competition in how West Des Moines gets its internet service.
Residential customers in West Des Moines can choose between our super fast 2 Gig service for $100 per month or our flagship 1 Gig service for $70 a month — the same price our very first customers paid in Kansas City almost a decade ago. And local businesses can select either our new Business 2 Gig service for $250 per month or Business 1 Gig for just $100 per month. Our local West Des Moines team is standing by in our newly opened Google Fiber Space in Valley Junction to help customers sign up for service or answer any questions.
As the city completes more sections of the conduit network, we’ll roll out service to new areas, opening signups in each new area as our fiber optic network is completed. In the meantime, you can get the latest information about what’s happening with Google Fiber in West Des Moines by signing up for email updates on our site and following us on social media (Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook).
