Google mulls major Google Fiber expansion to 9 new cities

February 19th, 2014 at 1:14 PM
Google Fiber Expansion 9 Cities

Google Fiber is now only available in three different markets but that could soon change very quickly. Google announced on Wednesday that it is considering expanding its Google Fiber services to nine new markets: Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, San Antonio, Salt Lake City, and San Jose. A move into San Antonio would be particularly provocative because it would put Google Fiber right in AT&T’s home town. 

Google Fiber already has service up and running in Kansas City, Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah so it looks like the company’s future fiber buildout plans will expand its reach on the west coast, the midwest and the south before it would consider coming to major northeastern cities such as New York, Boston or Philadelphia.

Google’s fiber network, which offers peak speeds of 1Gbps, is by far the fastest Internet service offered in the United States. And Google isn’t resting on its laurels either because it’s announced plans to deploy fiber technology that will increase speeds by 10 times to a whopping 10Gbps. Google Fiber is seen as the best hope for Internet users who want alternatives to traditional cable companies although its limited reach so far has meant that its impact on the American broadband market has been relatively small.

A map showing all of the places where Google may expand its Fiber footprint follows below.
