Downtown Fiber Network

In 2018, the City of Eugene partnered with the Eugene Water and Electric Board (EWEB), Lane Council of Governments, and the Technology Association of Oregon to construct EUGNet, a municipally owned fiber optic network in downtown Eugene. EUGNet is an open-access network, meaning EWEB owns the fiber infrastructure and any qualified internet service provider (ISP) is able to lease the fiber and compete for customers in the downtown service area. This competition has led to lower prices and faster internet speeds.

To find out more about how to connect to the network or to find a participating ISP, please visit the EUGNet website.

Urban Renewal: EUGNet was made possible by funding from the the Urban Renewal Agency. Click here for more information on Urban Renewal and current projects.
