Google Fiber Expanding to Four New Cities

28 January 2015

Google is planning an extension to its Google Fiber Internet service to four new cities with details of the rollout expected to come in the next few days, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Google will begin offering its 1 gigabit broadband network to Atlanta, Nashville, Raleigh-Durham, NC and Charlotte, NC. Last year, Google said it was considering moving more aggressively in its Google Fiber expansion and was looking at nine new cities for deployment – the cities listed as the ones expecting to get Google Fiber as well as Phoenix, Portland, San Antonio, Salt Lake City and San Jose, Calif. It is unclear if these cities will still get Google Fiber or if they did not qualify for the service due to deadlines or other factors.

Currently, Google has established broadband connectivity in Austin, Kansas City and Provo, UT, so the expansion of four cities represents the largest expansion of the service yet for the Internet search giant.

Google claims its broadband connection offers speeds up to 100 times that of current basic broadband services offered by other competitors for fast downloads, streaming and television service.
