Google Fiber Approved in Portland

Good news for all of you Portlandians out there, your city council has approved Google’s request to install Google Fiber in Portland. This is the final hurdle from the city’s side of the equation, the ball is now squarely in Google’s court on whether to proceed with installation.

According to the city of Portland, estimates put Google's investment at $300 million or more. Should the company proceed with its plans, it will be required to provide free service to some non-profit organizations, as well as free WiFi services outdoors in certain areas.
