Google Buying $39M Fiber Service In Utah For $1

AP - Google Inc. will pay $1 for a municipal fiber-optic system that cost $39 million to build, according to terms of the Internet company's agreement with Provo.

The deal is widely expected to be approved Tuesday by the City Council, making Provo the third city selected by Google for high-speed Internet and television service. (Google, Services)

Is that the only part of the story you read?
-Mezzo-  +   585d ago

'Yes,... with the amount of stories i submit, no one should expect me the read the story completely. :P'

Then perhaps you should slow down? I know, crazy thought right? Instead of rushing to submit these posts just because you want to win the prize money every month maybe you should actually take a minute to read through what you're submitting.

Perhaps i should,...well, perhaps i shouldn't.

I really don't have time to work 2 jobs, post on all NewsBoiler sites & read each and every News Story i submit.

Plus it's a news story i have no relation to.
-------------------

People are really getting hostile towards me, due to the fact that i win each month. NOT FAIR....NOT FAIR AT ALL.

@Mezzo - I can't speak for the others since I have nothing to gain or lose by hating you (so I don't), but if you're making a comment, don't base it on just one line because as was proven in this case, the $1 deal was just a baited title and the rest of the story explained that it really was more than that. I don't think anyone in this thread at least has an issue with you coming first, but one of the biggest problems is that people make comments without seeing the whole picture, so it causes some confusion from time to time.

1 dollar... that's a way of saying it is priceless. On Person Of Interest, they sold the Machine for a dollar cause it was 'priceless'.

Fair enough. But if I were google, I will make it at least $2

I think a typo here.. could it be 1 million.
Speed-Racer  +   586d ago
Read the story and you'll understand that the $1 is just symbolic. There are other costs attached.

One has to wonder how much more of this underutilized potential is going to waste. What other places have vast amounts of dark fiber ready to be revitalized and tapped into.

OR

Google seems to enjoy making these communication tycoons appear lazy at they're own game. lol
