Google pours cold water over reports of Fiber expanding to New York

Google Fiber

A report yesterday said that Google could bring its Fiber service to New York City. But a spokesperson for the company has now denied these reports stating that Google Fiber will be focused solely towards existing markets and the 34 new regions that will soon get the service.

A job listing for a managerial post in New York City gave rise to speculation that Google might be looking to bring this service to the Big Apple, but that’s clearly not the case according to this latest revelation. Speaking to Ars Technica, the Google spokesperson said – “Don’t read into the job listing. We’ve had a full team of folks working on Fiber in the New York office (and other locations around the world) for years. We don’t currently have any plans to bring Google Fiber to New York. We’re entirely focused on building out our networks in Kansas City, Austin, and Provo, and on exploring the possibility of bringing Fiber to the 34 locations we announced in February.

Google Fiber is currently available in Kansas City and parts of Texas with plans to expand into the aforementioned 34 markets in the coming months. While we cannot rule out a future expansion to New York City, there are no hopes of availability anytime in the foreseeable future.

  1. Negotiating a less greedy approach to city-wide Gbit/sec WiFi driven by fiber comes first. Then wiring vertical fiberhoods (high rises), ten or thirty vertical fiberhoods a time, provided one of them leases space for a 20″x12″ fiberhut in room above extreme water-levels.
