Crews are in the process of installing high-speed fiber optic cabling on League City's west side, according to a city press release.

Frontier Communications is installing the infrastructure, which will allow residents' internet speed to increase up to a gigabyte level of service, and marking the ground where installation will occur.


Crews will be installing in the following areas: the area bound by FM 518 to the north, Dickinson Avenue to the west and Reynolds Avenue to the east; the Bayou Brae neighborhood; The Meadows neighborhood and St. Christopher Avenue area; the Pecan Forest and Wilshire Place neighborhoods; and the Oaks of Clear Creek neighborhood.

Residents will see ground markers in these areas over the next few weeks. Once the markings are placed, the contractor can begin work anywhere from four days to two weeks, the release reads.

Westside fiber cabling installations will finish by the end of the year, and east side installations will begin early next year and finish by the end of 2022.
