Google Fiber expands for second time this month, arrives in Provo, Utah

Provo, Utah isn’t as well-known as Kansas City or Austin but it’s nonetheless become the third city to get access to Google’s high-speed Google Fiber television and Internet service. The expansion to Provo will be relatively simple for Google since the city already has its own fiber network known as iProvo. Google announced on Wednesday that it will buy iProvo from the city and will “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.” Google says that Provo, which has a population of around 115,000, is a terrific market for Google Fiber because it “ranks second in the nation in patent growth, and is consistently ranked as one of the top places to live and do business in the U.S.”
