SOUTH JORDAN, Utah, Oct. 8, 2021 (Gephardt Daily) — Google Fiber will be coming to South Jordan in 2022, the city announced Friday.
South Jordan has passed a resolution allowing Google Fiber Utah, LLC access to the city public right-of-way to install network facilities, said a news release.
“We’re excited to have another internet provider here in South Jordan,” said Mayor Dawn Ramsey. “Our residents and businesses have asked for more choices, and our City Council is happy to do its part to make that happen.”
Starting early next year, Google Fiber Utah will begin installing fiber along roads throughout South Jordan.
“We’re continuing to grow our network across the Wasatch Front,” said Jacob Brace, Google Fiber government and community affairs manager. “We look forward to connecting South Jordan residents to fast, reliable internet and expect to start offering service in some areas in early 2022.”
Google Fiber will now begin creating their buildout plan and will notify residents and businesses before work begins in their area and when broadband internet service will be available, the news release said.
“Google Fiber will work to reduce the disruption and impact to our residents by using smaller trenches,” said South Jordan City Public Information Officer Rachael Van Cleave.
South Jordan will be working with Google Fiber to release more updates as they become available.
