Google Eyes the Queen City for 1GB/s Internet

google fiber charlotteLast week Google announced the next 9 cities where it would like to expand its Google Fiber services and we were pleasantly suprised to find Charlotte on the list!  Google Fiber is Google’s response to ISPs (Internet Service Providers) that charge high prices for sub-par Internet speeds.  Its promise of 1 gigabit per second is about 1,000 times faster than the average Internet connection!

Google Fiber would be an incredible addition to Charlotte’s ISPs which are currently dominated by AT&T and Time Warner Cable.  In the 3 cities where Google Fiber is already up & running it has created new businesses & even caused startups to relocate for the faster bandwidth.

So is it a done deal? No, unfortuantely not, but Google representives are meeting with city officials this week to further investigate brining Google Fiber to the city of Charlotte.  Want to see if Google Fiber would be an option where you live?  Find out here.
