Google has just announced good news for thousands of people living in 18 cities across four metro areas: Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, and Raleigh-Durham. Five more metro areas are to get Google Fiber in the near future, the search giant has said in a blog post.
The five additional metro areas where Google Fiber maybe heading are Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Antonio and San Jose. Google said it will share updates on the potential of coming Google Fiber to these areas later this year.
As of now, Google Fiber is only available in Kansas City, Austin and Provo. As the map above shows, shared by Google on its Google Fiber blog, the Gigabit connection is confirmed to be headed to four states across Southeast US.
Google wrote that it saw huge success in the three cities where it sped up the internet speed a hundred times the basic speed that is available in the rest of the country. Examples on Google’s entry include Kansas City Startup Village, DevMountain from Provo, and a Medium article explaining how a geneticist could one day use the faster internet speed help newborns in intensive care.
While the folks over at Kansas, Provo and Austin continue to enjoy the high speed internet connection, it’s time for people from Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, and Raleigh-Durham to get started to enjoy Google’s insanely high speed internet connection.
