Get ready North Carolina Google Fiber is reported to be coming to your state, at least that’s what a member of the Cary Town Council tweeted. Google has brought Fiber to Kansas City, Provo and Austin and they list Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte as potential markets for Google Fiber. Lori Durham of the Cary Town Council tweeted the cryptic message below.
Other news sources have also reported that Triangle is indeed the next spot Google plans on laying Fiber. If you’re not familiar with Google Fiber it is Google’s super fast Internet service offering speeds of up to 1000Mbps which is around 100 times faster than the average American’s connection. It seems Google is choosing to deploy Fiber in smaller cities like Provo, KC and Austin rather than large cities like Chicago and New York. It’s certainly something North Carolina should be excited for, the cost for Google Fiber isn’t going to be cheaper than users current pricing but it’s not outrageous either. At $70 for Gigabyte Internet that’s pretty reasonable considering the speeds you’re getting. We’re excited for the folks in North Carolina who are going to get this soon and we look forward to where Google expands to next. Check out the Google Fiber website for more information on expansion plans.
