Google Fiber Targets Small Businesses In Provo

Expanding on a “Early Access” program introduced in Kansas City last November, Google Fiber has launched a service tailored for small businesses in Provo, Utah, where the provider tangles with incumbent network operators Comcast and CenturyLink Communications.

Under that program, prospective small businesses in Google’s “fiberhoods” can sign up for 1-Gig broadband for $100 per month. Google Fiber, which is waiving its construction fee, is offering guaranteed pricing for one year. It’s also selling optional static IP addresses – one for $20 per month, or five for $30 per month.

Google Fiber also has network buildouts underway in Austin, Texas. In January, it announced plans to expand its mix of broadband and pay-TV offerings to 18 new cities across four metro areas in the Southeast U.S. – Atlanta, Ga.; Charlotte, N.C.; Nashville, Tenn.; and Raleigh-Durham, N.C.
