Along with fiber, select cities could also find Google-supported Wi-Fi access
Google wants to send a clear message to U.S. internet users and rivals: the internet war is continuing, and Google wants to be on top. Cities that are
already receiving Google’s gigabit-speed internet service
will also be able to benefit from
, according to recent reports.
“We’d love to be able to bring outdoor Wi-Fi access to all of our Fiber cities, although we don’t have any specific plans to announce right now,” Google spokespeople reportedly said.
Google Fiber is currently available in Kansas City and Provo, Utah, with
plans on the tablet to bring the service to Austin, Texas
An additional 34 cities
have until May 1 to reply, providing information about city addresses, building types, and to turn over geospatial data files that provide access to city infrastructure.
After receiving the documents, Google will conduct thorough studies to determine how feasible fiber and Wi-Fi support can be introduced.
There is a growing battle in the United States to try and roll out fiber internet access to subscribers, and Google hopes to put as much pressure on traditional Internet service providers as possible.
AT&T has plans to ramp up gigabit-per-second fiber
to 21 cities in the U.S., with other companies also trying to join in on the fun.

That's just your opinion. You don't know which channels that may be. But a lot of those channels are premium, and are being paid for. In addition, except for the public service channels, there are many that pay to get carried. It evens out. With others, part of the subscription for the individual channel is shared with the carrier.
I'd rather have people get to see what they want than to have people remove those channels. I don't think that anyone should be able to determine what someone else can see, even of it does cost them a few extra bucks.
