Google Wants to Bring Google Fiber to 34 New Cities

Posted by · 7765 views · Translate

Google is looking to bring its super fast Internet service to 34 more cities across the U.S., it announced early today. Google Fiber offers speeds of 1 Gbit/s up and down.

Now that we’ve learned a lot from our Google Fiber projects in Kansas City, Austin and Provo, we want to help build more ultra-fast networks. So we’ve invited cities in nine metro areas around the U.S.—34 cities altogether—to work with us to explore what it would take to bring them Google Fiber.

We aim to provide updates by the end of the year about which cities will be getting Google Fiber. Between now and then, we’ll work closely with each city’s leaders on a joint planning process that will not only map out a Google Fiber network in detail, but also assess what unique local challenges we might face. These are such big jobs that advance planning goes a long way toward helping us stick to schedules and minimize disruption for residents.

Google says it wants to bring Fiber to each one of the cities; however, it might not work for some of them. They are asking each area to provide maps of existing conduit, water, gas and electricity lines so they can plan where to place fiber. They also want the city to help them find ways to access existing infrastructure.

I have AT&T UVerse here in CT they just did a huge upgrade to their system. It's no fiber to the home or gig internet, but definitely a HUGE improvement to what I had with them just 6 months ago.

I am glad I had fios for a while and enjoyed it compared to slime warner cable but I'm with Apple TV now. Couldn't get better than cable.

Is really no need for it in New York we already have Verizon FiOS and that's extremely fast any more than this is overkill unless your running a web server and even fios has more than enough bandwidth
