A better network enhances opportunities to connect with the things we love.
That’s why we're committed to bringing Google Fiber to more people. In 2014, we
started working with 34 cities in 9 metro areas across the US to explore
building new fiber-optic networks in their communities.
Planning and building a new network from scratch takes time – and we want to work
closely with every city to map out and understand all possible local needs and
We work alongside city leaders to explore bringing Google Fiber to their
area. This means reviewing infrastructure - roads, underground utility paths,
and even permitting capabilities, to make sure cities are ready to design and
build a brand new network.
Every mile of this super-fast network has to be planned – we can’t just put
it anywhere. We use the data shared with us to create a map of where we can
build (based on existing utility poles and water, gas, and electricity
With our plan in place, we start the hard work of stringing and laying
thousands of miles of brand new, state-of-the-art fiber optic cable. We will
lay enough new fiber in the area to reach from here to Canada and back, and
you will see our engineers and crews in the streets for a long time.
We build the fiber network in areas where people want it. Cities are divided
into small communities we call fiberhoods. You can get Fiber if enough people
in your fiberhood show interest.
We complete the process by connecting qualified fiberhoods to the new network
and installing service in homes and businesses.
