Last Wednesday, Google announced its decision to expand Fiber to San Antonio, Texas. Fiber has already proven to have faster Internet speeds than the national average.
Within the coming months, Google and San Antonio city leaders will place more than 4,000 miles of fiber optic cables around the city. It usually takes Google approximately a year to build a successful fiber-optic network that reaches homes and businesses.
The fiber-optic network is capable of delivering speeds of up to one gigabit per second, 100 times the average Internet connection in major U.S cities.
San Antonio will be the second Texas city to operate with Fiber, which was installed in Austin late 2014. Other cities using the Fiber network include Provo, UT, and Kansas City.
San Antonio will be the largest project for Google Fiber thus far. Google has also scouted Phoenix, San Jose, Portland and Salt Lake City for Fiber expansion.
