Google Fiber, Three Others Approved for Broadband Internet Service in Mesa


MESA, AZ — Mesa on Monday approved licensing deals for Google Fiber and three other fiber optic companies in an effort to bridge the digital divide.

SiFi, Ubiquity, Wyyerd and Google Fiber are now authorized to begin the process of obtaining permits for the installation of fiber optic networks on City rights-of-way. The move is part of an effort to bring full fiber optic network connectivity to Mesa and address a “need for fast, reliable and affordable Internet service,” the city said in an announcement.

Google Fiber has announced that it will bring its fiber-to-the-home Internet at gigabit speeds to Mesa on July 1 []making Mesa the first city in Arizona with Google Fiber.


At the time of the announcement, Google Fiber and New Jersey-based SiFi Networks were on Mesa City Council’s agenda. On Monday night, Ubiquity and Wyyerd joined, resulting in four approved licensing deals.
