Google has gradually been expanding its Fiber gigabit internet service across the United States and now it’s looking at yet another potential city where it could expand the service. The company has announced today that it’s looking at Dallas, Texas, as the next potential Google Fiber city. It’s only exploring the idea right now so it can’t be said for sure if Google Fiber will really become available in Dallas.
Google is quick to point this out itself. Just because it’s exploring the idea of bringing Fiber to Dallas doesn’t mean it will necessarily be expanded to that city.
The company usually announces its intention of expanding to a new city first and then works with local authorities to try and figure out if it really will be possible to roll out the gigabit service in that city.
“Working alongside Mayor Mike Rawlings and local leaders, we’ll use our Fiber checklist to learn more about local topography, existing infrastructure, and other factors that may impact construction,” Google said in today’s announcement.
Google Fiber is currently available in six metropolitan areas and is currently the process of being rolled out to six more. It won’t be the only gigabit internet service in Dallas though, AT&T provides its own gigabit service to some parts of the city already.
