A source who wished to remain unnamed informed Provo Buzz that Google Fiber was already in select parts of Provo. Whether the speeds are permanent or temporary is unknown. To confirm that the individual was indeed receiving the 1 Gbps speeds offered by Google Fiber, a speed test was performed on the network. The source currently has Veracity Networks, which is the fiber optic network Google has purchased from Provo City. The following certificate was used to prove the speeds were indeed Google Fiber speeds.

Google Fiber in Provo

To further prove the certificate is real, if you click on the image it will link to an official SpeedTest.net page.

Google said it had hopes to have Google up and running before the end of the 2013 year and hopefully by the end of fall. Could Google be making faster progess and have the network ready for the public sooner? Leave your thoughts below!

    Is the source willing to leak which neighborhood or “fiberhood” they live in?

    Here is the problem with that statement. Unless google changed equipment at his house this is impossible. The equipment veracity installed only has 10/100 ports on it and cannont go any faster. So unless google came to them and offered a test upgrade this is a load of _______!

    You would be totally right, expect this person has these speeds recorded from a business. He wouldn’t tell me the company to avoid any potential legal drama. Google and both Provo City stated on Day 3 after the big announcement that certain businesses will be given Fiber before others. It’s very likely Google is already testing its Fiber at select locations.

    This is probably one of the 25 locations with free gigabit internet

    I can say a few weeks back my download speeds started maxing out. Usually I would reach about 60% of max but I am now constantly maxing out. I wonder if they have already installed updated some of the infrastructure.

    Same; a few weeks back I was only hitting about 60-65Mbps Up and Down of my 90/90. Now I’m hitting 87-88Mbps Up and Down.
    Engineers were at my house about a month ago; I have a inground fiber hub in my back yard. Yay me.
    Equipment in my garage is still the crap Lightning House or whatever. It’s still registared to broadweave lol. So they haven’t installed any Google equipment yet. I’m patiently waiting……

    Traceroutes from within my network are hitting Google.com in 3 hops though.
