Between Google Fiber’s offering in Provo and the large number of incumbent Internet providers, Provo will be a leader in the United States for both access to broadband at homes and businesses and for the average speeds available.
To ensure Provo’s success, we are engaging in a Strategic Planning and Implementation Process called Provo Accelerated. Provo Accelerated is an effort to engage the Provo community in figuring out how to maximize the value of our new status as one of the most connected cities in America.
Tomorrow, October 28 we invite the community to attend our Provo Accelerated event where we will breakout into five teams:
- Family / Community
- Social Sector / Digital Inclusion
The entire community is invited to hear presentations, engage in discussions and help develop an action plan for helping Provo accelerate into the future with the power of the fast speed and near ubiquity in access to the Internet. The forum will be at the Provo Recreation Center from 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

To learn more about the effort, visit the Provo Accelerated blog at www.provoaccelerated.com or visit their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ProvoAccelerated. They have also created an online forum where residents can weigh in on the concepts being advanced and share their vision for Provo as it relates to our strategic technology advantages.
So join in, get involved and help make Provo an even better community, given our amazing access to the Internet and all that means for our city!
