Google Fiber (Paul Sableman_Flikr)

Google Fiber, launched in 2012, aims to make the web faster and better. It offers an Internet connection speed that’s up to 1,000 megabits per second.

Jill Szuchmacher, Director, Google Fiber Expansion, announced last week that they are considering expanding the high the high speed internet service to three more cities, Irvine, CA, Louisville, KY, and San Diego, CA. Other potential Fiber cities include Portland, San Jose and Phoenix, according to the website.

“Much of the United States still lags behind the rest of the world in Internet speeds, cities like Kansas City—where Fiber started—rank amongst the fastest cities in the world. We want to see more U.S. cities at the top of that list”, Szuchmacher said.

The service has been already deployed in Provo, Kansas City and Austin, while upcoming Fiber cities include Salt Lake City, San Antonio, Nashville, Atlanta, Charlotte and Raleigh–Durham.

Szuchmacher further said that the next step involves a joint planning process with city leaders, following which they will determine if Google Fiber can be deployed in Irvine, Louisville and San Diego.

“We’re looking forward to working together as we explore bringing Google Fiber to these communities”, Szuchmacher added.
