Google announced today via its official blog that over the next few months it will begin work with nine metro areas—34 cities in total—across the country to determine what it would take to connect them with Google Fiber. The nine metro areas are Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, San Antonio, Salt Lake City and San Jose. The blog makes it clear that though the goal is to bring Fiber to all of the cities, “it might not work out for everyone” after exploring local factors that could affect construction. The announcement comes as Google Fiber installation nears completion in much of Kansas City, with users in Kansas City, Mo., as well as North and South Kansas City, Mo., expected to receive service in March. — Source: Google’s Official Blog
