Gigabites: Tempe Tees Up for Google Gig
News Analysis Mari Silbey, Senior Editor, Cable/Video 7/31/2015
In this week's Gigabit Roundup, the Tempe, Arizona City Council votes unanimously to give Google permission to bring its gigabit service to town. Plus, the Midwest gets a gigabit jolt with new deployment plans in Kansas, North Dakota and more.
In a statement reported by Fox 10 in Phoenix, a Cox spokesperson said: "It's unfortunate that the Tempe City Council is willing to favor a new entrant into the market, and in doing so appears to have violated federal and state law. The waivers granted by the City also give Google Fiber a free pass on obligations that affect public safety; such as emergency alert messaging and protection of subscriber privacy."
