Google Fiber Expansion Moves Fast, San Antonio Approves Construction
Google last month announced that it’s talking to 34 cities in nine metro areas nationwide about installing Google Fiber, and it looks like San Antonio, Texas is the first to move ahead.
“On Thursday, the City Council approved a long-term contract with Google Fiber Texas, LLC., allowing the tech company to install about 40 so-called ‘fiber huts’ at San Antonio libraries, fire and police stations, and other city buildings,” the San Antonio Express-News reported today.
Fiber huts are one of the main components of Google’s fiber networks. When Kansas City construction began in 2012, Google said, “we’ll be routing fiber connection into Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO through several equipment aggregator huts, aka ‘Google Fiber Huts.’ From the Google Fiber Huts, the fiber cables will travel along utility poles into neighborhoods and homes.”
