Three More Potential Google Fibre Cities Announced

Continuing the expansion of the coverage of the high speed internet service to more cities, Jill Szuchmacher, Director, Google Fiber Expansion, announced on Wednesday that Oklahoma City, Jacksonville and Tampa are invited to explore bringing Google Fiber to their communities.

“These growing tech-hubs have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to small business growth... One of our goals is to make sure speed isn't an accidental ceiling for how people and businesses use the Web, and these cities are the perfect places to show what’s possible with gigabit Internet”, Szuchmacher said.

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

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. Other potential Fiber cities include Portland, San Jose, Phoenix, Irvine, Louisville and San Diego according to the website. The latter three added only last month.

“Oklahoma City, Jacksonville, and Tampa will join 15 other metro areas where we’re serving customers, designing and building networks, or exploring the possibility of Google Fiber”, Szuchmacher added.
