Google Fiber Acquires Internet Service Provider Webpass

Google Fiber, Google’s fiber-to-the-premises service in the United States, is to acquire Webpass, a San Francisco, CA-based Internet Service Provider.

The amount of the deal – which is expected to close this summer – was not disclosed.

By joining forces, Google Fiber and Webpass aim to accelerate the deployment of fast Internet connections for customers across the U.S.

Founded in 2003 and led by Charles Barr, President, Webpass deploys high speed Internet connections for residential and commercial buildings, primarily using point to point wireless. It owns and operates its Ethernet network to offer business Internet connections from 10 – 1000 Mbps and residential Internet connections from 100 Mbps – 1 Gig.
The company will now continue to grow its service in the major urban markets of San Francisco, Oakland, San Diego, Miami, Chicago, and Boston adding to Google Fiber’s list of operational cities.
