Wyyerd Fiber has launched 5 Gbps symmetrical fiber internet services for residents and businesses in its existing service areas, and plans to offer this advanced capability for customers in all future service areas.

The company is rapidly expanding its service areas in greater Phoenix and greater San Diego, and plans to have the 5 Gbps service available soon across its network.

About 10 years ago, Wyyerd Fiber (via one of its predecessor companies) began offering 1 Gbps symmetrical service. In 2022, the company began providing 2 Gbps services.

The company’s acceleration of available speeds reflects trends throughout the industry.

In early 2022, AT&T and Ziply were some of the first providers to launch 5 Gbps service.

Since then, others also have made the move, including Shentel, Google Fiber and others.

Like some other companies, Wyyerd Fiber has pursued agreements with municipalities in which it wishes to build. While the municipalities may not provide funding toward project costs, they may provide access to needed infrastructure that can help minimize deployment costs, as a company executive told Telecompetitor last year.

“The launch of 5 GIG symmetrical services is just another step in our continuous evolution to provide the best possible user experience, with the fastest speeds, via the most future-proof technology available,” Kate Rodriguez, Wyyerd’s executive vice president of strategy and product, said in a prepared statement.
