Google plans to acquire the San Francisco-based internet service provider Webpass and to quickly increase its urban coverage and offer customers a combination of fiber and wireless delivery of high-speed Internet.
Founded 13 years ago, Webpass uses point-to-point wireless to deliver high-speed broadband to apartment buildings and businesses. The company offers business connections from 10 to 1,000 Mbps and to residential customers service from 100 Mbps to 1Gbps.
"By joining forces, we can accelerate the deployment of superfast internet connections for customers across the US," Webpass President Charles Barr said in a blog post announcing the deal. "Webpass will remain focused on rapid deployment of high-speed internet connections for residential and commercial buildings, primarily using point-to-point wireless."
Details of the deal weren't disclosed, but the acquisition is expected to close this summer.
