Marks third city to adopt broadband network delivering TV and Internet

Google announced a third market Wednesday that will get its ultra-fast broadband network: Provo, Utah.

Google Fiber will take over an existing municipal network, iProvo. The company is hoping to begin offering 1-gigabyte Internet and TV service immediately after the city council votes to approve it April 23.

“We believe the future of the Internet will be built on gigabit speeds, and we’re sure the businesses and residents of Provo already have some good ideas for what they’d build with a gig,” wrote Google Fiber GM Kevin Lo in a company blog post.

The search giant already made expansion plans earlier this month in Austin, Tex. Its inaugural market is Kansas City, Mo. (along with Kansas City, Kan.).
