Good deal for Google and they get to expand on their fiber reach.
It's a win/win all around.
Provo is a really famous place, just ask Donnie & Marie,............
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
I really hope they vote yes for it. We are in desperate need of better internet options around here
Uhm, is this city council going to be making a smart choice? Doesnt like any council I have ever heard of.
Any city counsel would be crazy at this point to turn down Google unless something is unreasonable but Google makes it to easy. City counsels aren't smart but I assume if they want to get reelected they wouldn't turn down on the hottest things in America right now.

I wrote out a long response the other day but for some reson it didn't post and I was too lazy to type it again.
I really don't believe that Provo would be in the same place if google decided to hand them back the infrastructure, this sounds like a win-win for Provo. If google succeeds then Provo will have gotten a jump start on the rest of the country making the current budget overrun more than worth it for the overall service they would be receiving. If google fails and decides to sell back the service for $1 it would mean that Provo got a relief from having to make any payments for however amount of years google was owner of it and then they would be handed back a massively upgraded network for the low low price of $1. Either Provo gets a working service with no further spending by the city or they get a payment break and an updated infrastructure for a low low price.
Sounds like a huge win for Provo while google takes all of the risk, quite smart.
