No matter where you live in this country, you probably only have two choices for your Internet service provider, and neither of them are ideal. They're usually too slow or too expensive and the customer service is dreadful.
That's why Google Fiber is seen as the savior of a broken industry. But it's only available in a few places. Now Google just announced three more cities it's coming to.
With Google Fiber, users can spend less time waiting for buffering and spend more time video chatting with friends, uploading precious family photos and playing online games.
According to a blog post by Google representatives this week, Google Fiber will be making its way to Irvine, Louisville and San Diego. This is great news for residents of the cities who will now be able to enjoy 1,000 megabits per second Internet speeds.
But before the cities get approved for Fiber, they need to complete a checklist of items such as providing information about existing infrastructure, create a project timeline and review Google specifications. Collecting this information can take months but it can really help expedite the installation process.
"We’ve seen that this planning process is helpful, both for Google Fiber and city officials—working together, we can take a massive infrastructure project and break it into manageable pieces," the blog post explains.
Google Fiber is already in Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, Kansas City, Nashville, Provo, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City and San Antonio, but the new cities will bring access to lightning-fast Internet to millions more Google users.
