Google has begun the process of bringing Fiber to three more US cities: Oklahoma City, OK, Jacksonville, FL, and Tampa, FL. Whether it will actually happen is another story (there is a lot of evaluation on the viability of construction to be done first), but they did have plenty of nice things to say about each location.




"These growing tech-hubs have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to small business growth," writes Jill Szuchmacher, Director of Google Fiber Expansion. "Their list of accolades is long-from Jacksonville's title as a top 10 city for tech jobs, to Tampa Bay's #2 spot on the list of best cities for young entrepreneurs, to Oklahoma City's recognition as the #1 city to launch a business. One of our goals is to make sure speed isn't an accidental ceiling for how people and businesses use the Web, and these cities are the perfect places to show what's possible with gigabit Internet."


The tally of cities equipped with or exploring Fiber right now is 15.
