Google Fiber will soon be coming to the city of San Antonio, TX, providing “Gigabit” Internet connections at up to 1,000 Megabits per second, as well as television services with over 150 channels.
Before construction of the network however (that will consist of approximately 4,000 miles of fiber-optic cables), it must first be planned and designed, a process that could take several months. This means at best network cables may start being laid out early 2016.
“Google Fiber will provide San Antonio with the competitive business and entrepreneurial edge needed in this era of continuously evolving high-speed technology,” said Ivy R. Taylor, San Antonio Mayor.
We are incredibly excited to begin our next phase of Google Fiber in Alamo City and witness the amazing things San Antonians do with gigabit Internet,” said Mark Strama, Head of Google Fiber, Texas.
Google Fiber is currently available in Austin, TX, Kansas City, KS, Kansas City, MO and Provo, UT, and is in the process of constructing its network in Atlanta, GA, Charlotte, NC, Nashville, TN, Raleigh/Durham, NC, and Salt Lake City, UT.
