Google has been laying low about plans to bring its exponentially quick Google Fiber service to areas around the United States, and we took you to its first point of installation in Kansas City back in September to check out the facility and demo for yourself. Since then, the service has only been rolled out to one additional location: Provo, Utah. It's a slow-going process, with Google having only announced one additional locale for 2014: Austin, Texas.
Beyond those three locations, Google has yet to announce any other areas currently planned to introduce the speedy fiber network. It's a lengthy process, as it is, and it's certainly not as simple as choosing a city and moving in. Google extends fiber service to neighborhoods only when a certain customer threshold is met. Locations must meet a number of criteria in order to be considered, such as a minimal amount of applicants, a strong demand for fiber, and more.
While it may be a while before Google Fiber heads to your area, you can at least attempt to prepare a spot by drumming up interest and spreading the word to interested parties.
