Today the Google Fiber team is in Provo, Utah, where Mayor John Curtis just announced that we intend to make Provo our third Google Fiber City.
Unlike Kansas City and Austin, this network is already built (and just need some upgrading).
In order to bring Fiber to Provo, we’ve signed an agreement to purchase iProvo, an existing fiber-optic network owned by the city. As a part of the acquisition, we would commit to upgrade the network to gigabit technology and finish network construction so that every home along the existing iProvo network would have the opportunity to connect to Google Fiber.
All this depends on the approval of the city council. So to the folks in Lafayette that want to get rid of LUS, Google may be interested.
