The Internet, which is available currently in Kansas City and Austin, allows for download and upload speeds of 1,000 Mbps, astronomically higher than the average American ISP speeds of 5-15 Mbps.
Google is now inviting 34 cities (housed within eight metro areas) to try out Google Fiber. The lucky cities are:
- Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tempe
- San Jose, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Palo Alto
- Atlanta, Avondale Estates, Brookhaven, College Park, Decatur, East Point, Hapeville, Sandy Springs, Smyrna
- Charlotte, Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Durham, Garner, Morrisville, Raleigh
- Portland, Beaverton, Hillsboro, Gresham, Lake Oswego, Tigard
- San Antonio
- Salt Lake City
The cities that can build the proper infrastructure and network will have Fiber available by the end of the year.
As a side note: Dear Google, please come to New York soon, thank you.
