City’s industrial park adds broadband


New high-speed broadband service is now available at the Las Cruces Innovation and Industrial Park (LCIIP), thanks to an investment in the Doña Ana County fiber network by Conterra Networks, the City of Las Cruces said in a news release.

The project will provide internet speeds of as much as 10 gigabytes per second with 99.99 percent network reliability for LCIIP tenants, the city said.

LCIIP is located about 10 miles west of downtown Las Cruces off Interstate 10.

“With the addition of increased reliability and connectivity, LCIIP is a more attractive location than ever for businesses looking to move or expand,” said City Manager Ifo Pili. “Located strategically in the Borderplex with easy access to I-10, I-25 and the Las Cruces airport, we know that this is a prime location for businesses to thrive and grow. This expanded broadband service adds to our economic development momentum.”

Conterra Networks has invested $9.5 million in the project so far and has announced an additional estimated $12.6 million during the next five years.

LCIIP is has 500 acres ready for lease or purchase and 400 acres that are shovel ready, the news release said.
