Google Fiber Supposedly Expanding to Atlanta, Nashville, and North Carolina

Since unveiling their 1Gbps Internet Service, Google has been expanding Fiber slowly but surely, hitting Kansas City, then Austin, and then Provo, Utah, pacing themselves more like the tortoise than the hare. Now they’re about to ninja kick the damn rabbit and expand into five cities at once.

When I say at once, I don’t necessarily mean simultaneously, but Google has been announcing and expanding to one city at a time thus far. Yet rumor has it that they’re about to announce expansions into Atlanta, Nashville, and Raleigh, Charlotte, and Durham, North Carolina. This is the biggest, boldest move yet. All of these markets submitted paperwork to Google last year in hopes of getting Fiber. Other cities, like Portland, San Antonia, and San Jose have submitted the paperwork as well, but no word yet as to when Fiber is coming to them.

Google’s slow expansion hasn’t been entirely intentional. The company claims to have had trouble accessing utility poles and other important pieces of infrastructure in several markets, so it sounds like maybe they’d actually like to expand a little quicker, but not everyone is ready to meet them in the middle.
