After an announcement in April that Provo, Utah would be the third city to receive Google Fiber, Google's gigabit internet and television service, the mayor of Provo has announced that an agreement has been reached between Google and the city. The deal has officially closed, and the roll out campaign is underway.
No specific details are available about which neighborhood will become the first 'Fiberhood,' or when the roll out is expected to be completed, but mayor John Curtis promises 'a course in Google Fiber 101' in the coming weeks and months.
According to the mayor, "It’s been an adventure and our internal team has worked extremely hard alongside Google Fiber’s to jump the last few hurdles and get the city ready for the significant upgrades about to take place. These changes will without a doubt transform our community and the way we operate in it." It's definitely an exciting time for the citizens of Provo. Which city is next?
