Provo is the next stop for Google Fiber network

One week after it announced it was bringing its Google Fiber network to Austin, Texas, the search company said this week that Provo, Utah will be the third city to get its superfast 1 gigabit speed service (100x faster than the speed available to average U.S. residents today).

provo googleAccording to published reports, Provo will sell the existing fiber-optic network to Google for US$1. Google will so take over operation and ownership of the Provo network. As part of the acquisition, the company will finish the construction of the existing network — which has already saddled Provo with $39 million in debt — and provide free gigabit Internet service to 25 local public institutions, including schools, hospitals and libraries.

As other part of the deal, Google also will offer its free Internet service (at 5 Mbps speeds) to every home on the existing network for at least seven years. Users will have to pay a $30 activation fee. This is similar to the deal that Google announced for Austin, Texas earlier this month.Google-Fiber-World

Mr. Lo, general manager of Google Fiber, said the deal is pending approval by the Provo city council next week, but the proposal will have no trouble achieving City Council approval on April 23.
