Google has announced that Google Fiber, its ISP and television company, will be making its way to Provo, Utah. The company said that it finalized its deal with the City of Provo back in July and that it hopes to begin hooking customers up to the service by the end of the year. Before that, however, Google has said that between now and October the Google Fiber crew will be upgrading existing fiber network in Provo to be Gigabit-compatable.
Google will be offering its standard three Google Fiber plans to Provo residents: Free Internet, Gigabit Internet, and Gigabit Internet + TV. All plans require a $30 installation fee as well as a monthly fee for the Gigabit Internet plan the Gigabit Internet + TV plan ($70-$120 per month). The premium plans also include other perks like new routers, 1TB of Google Drive storage, and even a Nexus 7 with the TV plan. It’s worth noting that the construction fee in other Google Fiber cities is $300, not $30 like in Provo.
Google Fiber is Google’s ISP and cable television provider. The company offers speeds of up to 1Gbps, which is almost unheard of in the United States. As of now, the service is only available in Kansas City, and is coming to more parts of Missouri and Kansas as well as the cites of Provo, Utah and Austin, Texas.
