Google Fiber likely headed to Oklahoma City, Jacksonville, and Tampa

November 16th, 2015

Google Fiber may be coming to Oklahoma City, OK, Jacksonville, FL and Tampa, FL.

The three cities have been invited “to explore bringing Google Fiber to their communities”. Last month, Google sent the same invite to Louisville, KY, Irvine, CA, and San Diego, CA.

“These growing tech-hubs have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to small business growth. Their list of accolades is long—from Jacksonville’s title as a top 10 city for tech jobs, to Tampa Bay’s #2 spot on the list of best cities for young entrepreneurs, to Oklahoma City’s recognition as the #1 city to launch a business. One of our goals is to make sure speed isn’t an accidental ceiling for how people and businesses use the Web, and these cities are the perfect places to show what’s possible with gigabit Internet,” says Google.

According to Google, it will “study factors that may impact construction, like local infrastructure and housing density” and then “decide if it can bring Google Fiber to these areas”.

Back in August, Google announced that Fiber would be coming to San Antonio, the biggest city to receive the service yet.

In January, Google announced Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, and Nashville as next stops for Fiber. In March, Salt Lake City got the nod.

As of today, Fiber is up and running in Kansas City, Provo, Utah, and Austin.
