Officials with Google announced Wednesday that Salt Lake City is on a list of nine cities where the company wants to expand its ultra-high speed network called Fiber.  It would be the same system that residents of Provo are now signing up for. Michael Slinger is the director of business operations for Google.  He says the announcement only marks the beginning of a six to nine month process.

Google Fiber and the city of Provo are looking for 25 nonprofit organizations to join Google Fiber’s Community Connection Program. The program offers Google Fiber’s one gigabit per second internet service for free.
