One hot summer in the Salt Lake Valley
Our city update series continues, this time checking in with our team in Utah.
Google Fiber got our start in Utah in Provo in 2014, and expanded to start building our network in Salt Lake City the following year. This month, we’ll complete our initial build in Salt Lake City, which means that residents across the capital city have access to our high-speed, high-broadband service and everything that comes with it — for working, learning, playing, or watching.
As we close out our SLC build (don’t worry, we’ll continue to maintain our network and fill in new neighborhoods in SLC proper as needed going forward), we’re ramping up our activities in other communities throughout the Wasatch Front.
We’re currently building in South Salt Lake, Millcreek, Taylorsville, and Holladay, and expect to launch build efforts soon in North Salt Lake, Sandy, and as of last week, Woods Cross. We’ll launch service in many of these areas by early next year. We’re also talking to other cities across the region, and hope to continue to expand access to great internet for more Utahns.
All of this activity means more work for our local team than ever before. So we’re looking for a few more team members. If you are looking for your next challenge, take a look at our open jobs and join us!
Serving the Valley
Google Fiber is proud to partner with some incredible local organizations, working to help make digital equity a reality for all our communities. The last year has shown just how vital these efforts are and we’re grateful for the work these partners do. To help support these efforts, we continue to support local schools, libraries, Utah Communities Connect and others in furthering the goal of digital equity in Utah.
Most recently, we connected Spy Hop ’s new facility to gigabit internet as a part of Google Fiber’s Community Connection program. And last week, we welcomed four new NTEN fellows who will work to address digital equity issues in Utah.
We’re just heating up here in Utah, and don’t expect to cool off anytime soon. Google Fiber is working to bring more people online across the region — follow us on Twitter and Facebook to stay up-to-date on what’s next.
