Google names Oklahoma City, Tampa, and Jacksonville as potential Fiber locations
Google Fiber even in its limited availability is seeing some serious success. And now, Google is looking at expanding its Fiber service in three more cities: Tampa, Florida; Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and Jacksonville, Florida.
Keep in mind that Google is in the planning stages for these three locations, which by no means guarantees that it will be a Fiber location. It’s a long and lengthy process where the search giant works with local leaders to create detailed reports of the metro areas. As Google points out in its blog post, building a new Fiber network is no small feat. If the process is successful, these three cities will join 15 other metro areas where Google Fiber is available.
Google Fiber, at least right now, isn’t meant to be a rapid expanding service. Right now, the goal of Google Fiber seems to be to encourage Internet providers to move towards offering a similar service of the same speeds. And if Google were to do a major Fiber rollout, well, I’m certain many of us wouldn’t mind jumping ship from Comcast or Time Warner.
