The Prairie Village City Council is considering an agreement with Google Fiber to bring the high-speed internet service to the city.
The council is scheduled to address the issue at its meeting this Monday night, according to a meeting agenda.
The proposed agreement calls for Google to install a one gigabit-capable fiber network to sell high-speed broadband and video services in designated areas. It could also include the construction of a WiFi network in some areas for public WiFi access and commercial purposes, according to meeting agenda information.
If the agreement is approved, Prairie Village would join a growing number of area suburban cities getting the Google Fiber service initially offered in Kansas City, Kan., and Kansas City.
