Google Fiber Is Coming to Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham

Posted by at 1:26 pm on January 27, 2015

Just as expected, Google has revealed the next locations it will be launching Google Fiber, following its existing installations in Kansas City, Provo, and Austin. Confirming earlier reports, the high-speed Internet service will be rolling out in Atlanta, Georgia; Nashville, Tennessee; and Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte in North Carolina.

According to the Google blog, the search company has apparently been working with city leaders over the last year, with the next step being to create a “detailed map of where we can put our thousands of miles of fiber.” While exact timings for when each city will expect to get fiber service, Google expects to complete its network design “in a few months,” which it will then follow with construction.


When completed, users in the new locations can expect to go through the “fiberhood” sign-up system to determine which neighborhoods get Fiber first. While pricing has yet to be determined, it is likely to follow those of other markets, with Kansas City offering gigabit Internet for $70 per month, Internet with TV service for $120 per month, or a basic 5Mbps connection at no charge for at least seven years after paying the $300 installation fee.

Not content with three more metropolitan area additions, Google is said to be “continuing to explore bringing fiber” to Phoenix, Portland, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, and San Jose. Updates on the five candidates will be provided later this year, Google advises.
