Google can welcome Prairie Village to its community of Fiberhoods.
The City Council voted Monday night to approve a trio of agreements with Google, paving the way for the company to offer Google Fiber, its high-speed broadband and video service, in the city’s limits.
As part of the Network Cooperation and Services Agreement, Google would supply public Wi-Fi access and broadband service to an as-yet-undetermined group of public buildings. While there is no clear timetable for when Google would arrive in Prairie Village, the clock began Monday on the 10-year term for its free public services.
Prairie Village is now the 12th area city to reach a deal with Google on its fiber service.
