Not all cities may get Google Fiber, though
Google wants to bring its ultra-fast Google Fiber internet service to 34 new cities around the U.S., but will need to do some testing first to determine which areas can accommodate the service.
According to Google, the search giant wants to expand Google Fiber into 34 cities in nine metro areas, including Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, San Antonio, Salt Lake City, and San Jose.
Currently, Google Fiber has data transfer speeds of 1 gigabit per second. It went live in
in 2012, starting off with 700 Mbps downloads and 600 Mbps uploads. It is also available in
with talks of bringing the service to
While Google would love to roll Google Fiber out to all 34 cities total, the company said it needs to work with city leaders and figure out challenges that are unique to local areas before promising any launches.
"We aim to provide updates by the end of the year about which cities will be getting Google Fiber," said Milo Medin, VP, Google Access Services. "While we do want to bring Fiber to every one of these cities, it might not work out for everyone. But cities who go through this process with us will be more prepared for us or any provider who wants to build a fiber network."
Google Fiber users can opt for a cable and internet bundle at $120 per month, an unbundled gigabit Internet service for $70 per month and a "free" internet service at basic speeds (5 Mbps up/1 Mbps down, one-time $300 construction fee).
Earlier this month, it was reported that Google already has internet speeds of
10 gigabits per second
in the works, which could show its face in as little as three years.
