Google Fiber may be coming to Charlotte

More info at The Verge.

Google just announced that it’s invited cities in nine metro areas across the US to explore “what it would take” to bring its Google Fiber gigabit internet service to more locations. “People are hungrier than ever for faster Internet, and as a result, cities across America are making speed a priority,” Google says. “We’ve long believed that the Internet’s next chapter will be built on gigabit speeds, so it’s fantastic to see this momentum.” Google says up to 34 cities in all could potentially receive Fiber service. The nine metro areas where those cities are located include:

  • Atlanta, Georgia
  • Charlotte, North Carolina
  • Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina
  • Nashville, Tennessee
  • Phoenix, Arizona
  • Portland, Oregon
  • Salt Lake City, Utah
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • San Jose, California

    Please sign this petition to show your support for bringing Google Fiber to the Charlotte area. We need to let Mayor Cannon know how much of an impact this could have on Charlotte economically. Not only that, but it will likely drive more competitive internet pricing in the future as AT&T and Time Warner scramble to keep customers.
