While these places have not yet been confirmed by Google, a a blog post recently discussed how this company is exploring the idea of rolling out services in these large areas, explained by the engineers as housing a cool "combined 6+ million people."


The blog post continued "As we've explored bringing Fiber to other metros across the U.S., we've worked to refine our checklist and prepare for building our network in different places," with the Google Fiber team confidently stating that they are ready to take on the challenge of such a big city. While not confirmed, this announced investigation is welcome news for many residents.
