Definition

In 2020, Celina received official designation as a Gigabit City from the Office of the Governor Greg Abbott. This means that every residence and business within the city has access to a minimum of 1 Gbps (Gigabit per second) up and down connectivity speed. Thanks to fiber optic lines, our open access network will have faster communication and internet speeds for consumers and commercial businesses alike. This fundamental aspect of infrastructure will help to educate youth, create jobs, promote public safety, improve citizens’ standards of living and deliver essential services.
