Google Fiber coming to a town near you

The service will mean faster internet connection and television service–up to 100 times faster than traditional broadband. The service is free after an up-front $300 installation fee, or $25/month for 12 months.
In February 2014, Google revealed that it was considering expanding Google Fiber to nine metro areas, including Nashville, Raleigh-Durham, N.C., Charlotte, N.C., Atlanta, San Antonio, Portland, Ore., Salt Lake City, and the San Jose and South Bay areas. Nashville residents will soon get Google Fiber. Google announced plans to bring the service to Music City during a press conference at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center on January 27. While Google did not immediately say when the service would be ready for customers in the newly announced areas, it didn’t stop people from salivating over the idea of fast Internet service.
How does Google decide which cities they will go to? First they work along side city leaders to review infrastructure – roads, underground utility paths, and even permitting capabilities, to make sure cities are ready to design and build a brand new network. Every mile of this super-fast network has to be planned and diagramed. Google uses the data shared with them to create a map of where it can be built (such as existing utility poles) and areas that should be avoided. With the plan in place, the hard work of stringing and laying thousands of miles of brand new, state-of-the-art fiber optic cable is begun. You will see our engineers and crews in the streets for a long time. The fiber network is built in areas where people want it. You can get Fiber if enough people in your fiberhood show interest.
