With rumors of a Google Fiber expansion popping up, many were waiting to hear which cities would receive the super-fast Internet service. Today, via the Google Fiber Blog, Google announced four new cities to which Google Fiber will be expanding. The cities are Atlanta, Ga., Nashville, Tenn., Charlotte, N.C. and Raleigh-Durham, N.C., marking a significant expansion in the Southeast.
The project is currently in the design phase within the four cities. Google has been working with the cities over the past year to plan out the fiber-optic network layout and expects to finish this phase within a few months. After that, Google will begin construction of the underground fiber-optic network. Once that’s finished, interested customers can sign up and have Google Fiber connected to their home.
This expansion is a large one for Google Fiber, with four cities that are definitely getting Google Fiber, rather than just having the potential. Customers within these new markets should be happy, and many are looking forward to being able to get gigabit Internet speeds at affordable pries. With the Internet having such an impact on today’s society, the demand for faster Internet has continued to rise and is leading to the spread of gigabit networks like Google Fiber and its competitors.
