Google Fiber Evaluating Chicago and Los Angeles

Category: General News
Posted: 04:21PM

Google has some good news for citizens of Chicago, IL and Los Angeles, CA as it has announced that it is "exploring the possibility of bringing its super-fast Internet service" to the two major metropolitan areas. Chicago and LA would be the largest markets to receive the 1 Gb/s Internet service, joining Kansas City, Austin, and Provo, among other towns. Director of Google Fiber expansion Jill Szuchmacher stated, "Today, we're inviting Chicago and Los Angeles to explore bringing Google Fiber to their cities. As we’ve explored bringing Fiber to other metros across the U.S., we’ve worked to refine our checklist and prepare for building our network in different places. Now, we’re ready to use that same process to work with two of the biggest cities in the country. Home to a combined 6+ million people, Chicago and L.A. are the two largest metros we’ve engaged with to date. And with the help of gigabit Internet, Chicago and L.A. can boost their creative cultures with Internet speed to match their size."

When are they going to evaluate Nantucket? Comcast is pretty much a monopoly here and they're killing us with both prices and service quality :/
