Mesa set to be the 1st Arizona city to receive Google Fiber


The Mesa City Council approved a development agreement Monday to bring a Google data center to the city's tech corridor.

Google Fiber, Google’s internet service, is coming to Mesa, the first Arizona city to receive the service, the company announced Friday.

At the Mesa City Council’s meeting July 11, the council will vote on a measure to allow Google to use the city right-of-way to install its infrastructure on city streets.

“It’s been a great partnership with the city of Mesa. The city is very interested in giving residents a choice in how they get their internet service,” Ashley Church, general manager for the west region for Google Fiber, said.

If the measure is approved by the council, Google will begin the engineering phase to prepare for construction and installation of the fiber underground.
