    Google Fiber

    Additional broadband internet expanding to the “city on the move”.

     

    The City of South Salt Lake has entered into an agreement to bring Google Fiber’s fiber network to the City. Mayor Cherie Wood made the announcement to the City Council during their February 24, 2021, Regular Meeting. The agreement allows Google Fiber to begin building its fiber-to-the-home network in South Salt Lake. Residents and businesses are expected to be able to begin signing up for internet service by this summer.

     

    “Digital equity and inclusion are imperative for resident success. Working with Google Fiber creates new options for broadband access and connectivity in our community,“ said Mayor Wood. “Google Fiber’s expansion into South Salt Lake will assist us in addressing the digital divide.” 

     

    South Salt Lake is a city that values diversity, fosters a sense of belonging, and prioritizes resident success. The City’s Promise SSL initiative provides out-of-school programming with an academic and prevention focus. Some SSL youth and families have insufficient access to the internet that hinders opportunities and their ability to prosper. Google Fiber seeks to provide access and connectivity citywide.

     

    “South Salt Lake and Mayor Wood recognize the opportunity that access to fast, reliable internet can make in a community,” said Jacob Brace, Google Fiber Government and Community Affairs Manager, Utah. “Google Fiber is excited to be part of South Salt Lake’s goals of being a connected and innovative city.” 

     

    “It is often said that we are a small city with big opportunities, I am thrilled about our work with Google Fiber and the many opportunities it will afford residents and businesses,” said Mayor Wood. 

     

    SSL will continue the legacy as a “city on the move” through the Google Fiber agreement that will provide residents and businesses alike with reliable, fast broadband internet.

    Preparing for Plows

    Help keep the streets clear!
    more ▼ less ▲

    Winter is here, and that means plenty of snow is on the way! While our Public Works Department is hard at work keeping the streets clear, there are a few things residents can do to help them out:

    • Remove snow from your sidewalks and parking lots
    • Keep snow out of the roads when shoveling
    • Avoid parking in the streets after a snowfall

    Plowing begins after one inch of snow accumulates on the roadways and will continue until it is safe to drive. For more information on our plowing schedule, routes and operations, see our Snow Removal webpage.
