Apparently, there is an “epic announcement” taking place this afternoon in Provo, Utah. According to reports out of the city, Google is set to announce Provo as the third area to support their 1Gbps Internet service, Google Fiber.
So, what makes Provo, UT so special? A move into Provo would be easier than almost any other location, given the fact that the city is already wired for fiber optic, thanks to the work of a now-gone company called iProvo. iProvo brought ultra-fast data to the town, but due to financial issues, had to call it quits. The project was taken over by Veracity and is currently Utah County’s leading fiber-optic service.
The announcement is set to take place today at 1:30 PM. We’ll keep you posted.
