Everyone’s getting excited about the news that Google Fiber is set to open in 4 new cities, wondering if this includes the place where they live in. So hold on to your hats, people, because we’re listing them down right now!
As of the moment, Google Fiber is live in Austin, Provo and Kansas City. And for some time, they have been the envy of millions all over the country who are still using broadband and (admittedly, slower) other internet connections.
But Wait… Here’s a Little Intro:
For those who are not quite familiar with Google Fiber, let us explain what this is, how it works and how it can change your life. Yes, it can. And that is why the headline ‘Google Fiber Set to Open in 4 New Cities’ is getting everyone so thrilled.
Google Fiber is a fiber-to-the-premise service which provides amazingly fast broadband internet and TV connection. They have three main options to choose from:
The first is a broadband internet option which is free. There is a construction fee which may cost you $30 to $300. The second internet option has a connection which reaches 1 GB per second. This is about $70 per month. Then there is the 1 GB per second net connection with TV service which will set one back $120.
They had a trial launch in a small residential area in California’s Palo Alto back in 2011. It was so successful that Google decided to introduce it to more people.
A lot of cities all over the United States applied for this. After careful selection, Google chose Kansas City on March of 2011. It was soon followed by Provo and Austin.
Five Years Later…
It has been five years since the company set up in those three cities so one can just imagine the buzz that ‘Google Fiber Set to Open in 4 New Cities’ is creating. We won’t dally anymore and list these four down right now:
The current expansion will include Nashville, Atlanta, Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham.
Cary, Chapel Hill, Carrboro, Morrisville and Garner are some of the areas in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina which will have the connection first. College Park, Avondale Estates, Eastpoint, Hapeville, Brookhaven, Decatur, Smyrna and Sandy Springs are specifically listed in Atlanta, Georgia.
As of the moment, there is no information provided as to where, particularly, in Nashville and Charlotte will the connection be constructed. Nevertheless, the news ‘Google Fiber Set to Open in 4 New Cities’ is still welcomed in these regions.
When Google announced Kansas City as the first ever recipient of this ultra-fast net connection, they also said that they are set to work on numerous other metropolitan areas in the country. It did take them five years to do that but it would seem that they really are ready to deploy.
So, aside from the fact that Google Fiber set to open in 4 new cities, they are also preparing to set up in these cities in the following months: Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Antonio and San Jose.
