PRYOR, OK -- Google's large data center in Pryor will not go online as quickly as originally planned.

Google announced Tuesday that the data center probably won't start ramping up for another 12 to 18 months.

When the internet giant first announced it was coming to the Mid-America Industrial park in May of 2007, company officials thought the data center would be online in 2009.  Now a company spokesman tells the News On 6 it may early 2010 before that happens.

Despite the delay, Google says construction will continue but some Google employees already working there have been offered work in other areas of the company.
