This is Derek Miller Speaking on Business. We are all immersed in technology and depend upon fast, reliable internet access in business and at home. Jacob Brace of Google Fiber is here to discuss the impact of their gigabit internet on the communities in Utah.
Our mission is to help all communities — big, small, urban, rural, and everywhere in between — get access to internet that’s fast, reliable, fairly priced, and open. We achieve this through building reliable internet networks that empower communities to use the internet in ways that work for them. We also support community efforts that build digital inclusion, elevate digital literacy, and have accessible devices for use with the internet.
Our construction in Salt Lake City and growth into Millcreek, Holladay and elsewhere is a testament to residential desires for gigabit internet and city relationships wanting fiber optic investments in their communities. Access to fast reliable internet is so critical right now, as more and more people work from home, educate from home and even enjoy bringing their streaming entertainment online. In fact, we are so excited to have a 2 gig option for customers eligible to sign-up. This brings even more bandwidth to support the internet in the home and all the needs of our customers.
Google Fiber is shaping the way communities and businesses alike access the internet. Learn more about their offerings at fiber.google.com. I’m Derek Miller with the Salt Lake Chamber, and this is Speaking on Business
