The Draper City Council approved an agreement that will allow Google Fiber to provide high-speed, high-bandwidth internet service to residents and small businesses in Draper. Construction to install infrastructure is expected to begin in spring of 2022, with completion anticipated in just over one year, barring any weather delays or unforeseen obstacles.
“We are proud to have finalized an agreement with a private company that does not impose a financial obligation on the City or taxpayers for the infrastructure and service,” said Mayor Troy Walker. “As we are all increasingly reliant on dependable internet access for school, work, and other needs, it was important to the City to pursue this partnership. Google Fiber will be a great addition to our community.”
The agreement allows Google Fiber to access as needed, City roads, park strips, and other City property that is identified as public right-of-way for installation of the infrastructure. The City will provide updates for residents regarding construction-related activity and service availability. Decisions about service areas and fees will be solely determined by Google Fiber.
“Everyone deserves access to fast, reliable internet,” said Jacob Brace, Government and Community Affairs Manager for Google Fiber. “Google Fiber is looking forward to helping Draper residents accomplish all the things they need to do online everyday with dependable internet.”
