You may be aware of Google Fiber. Google has announced that the next city, which will get Google Fiber service, is San Antonio, Texas. According to the search giant, its Fiber internet service will give speed up to 1 GB per second, which is approx 100 times more than US average 12 MB per second internet speed.
This Google Fiber is already in city like Utah, Missouri, Kansas City and Provo, but with 1.4 million residents this San Antonio, Texas city is going to be the largest city with Google’s super fast Fiber internet services till now. The company has said that it will start the design phase for San Antonio pretty soon.
In a blog posted by Google said, “We’ll work closely with city leaders over the next several months to plan the layout of over 4,000 miles of fiber-optic cables – enough to stretch to Canada and back – across the metro area,”
Google is also planning to expand its Fiber internet services to the other side of US also, the company has not announced about future plans, but according to the map you can see its plans of other new cities.
Google is also planning to offer its internet and TV services, which are amazing and affordable. Now the residents of San Antonio can use the super fast internet speed of 1 GBps, but before you get too excited and start thinking about ditching your current internet provider, you should think first, because there is still time before you will experience Google’s Fiber internet services. Google says that they will enter in the design phase really soon.
Google is not alone in providing the super fast 1 GBps internet services, because AT&T are also planning to bring their own gigabit internet service options to San Antonio, which is called “U-Verse with AT&T GigaPower”. AT&T and Comcast are also expanding their super fast gigabit internet services, in some cases their internet services is faster than the Google. This means that Google will have some competition, when it will launch its 1 GBps Google’s Fiber internet services plan.
