Google Fiber Expanding

Google (GOOG) Chairman Eric Schmidt at The New York Times’ Dealbook conference on Wednesday was asked about the future of the company’s Google Fiber broadband Internet service. According to Jay Yarow of Business Insider, Schmidt revealed that the service “isn’t just an experiment,” but rather “a real business” and the company is “trying to decide where to expand next.” The high-speed Internet service has seen near universal praise since it debuted earlier this year in Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas. Consumers are eagerly waiting for Google to expand the project to new markets, however earlier reports suggested a nationwide build out could cost as much as $140 billion. The executive failed to give any additional or specific details, unfortunately, regarding which markets could see Google Fiber in the future.
