According to sources quoted in The Wall Street Journal, Google is gearing up to announce that its Fiber initiative is expanding into four metro areas.
The four cities reportedly getting Google Fiber next are Atlanta, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, and Nashville.
From the WSJ:
Google recently sent invitations to local news organizations in those four cities to attend events this week, without identifying the subject. The Atlanta and Nashville events are scheduled for Tuesday, Raleigh and Charlotte on Wednesday and Durham Thursday, according to local news reports.
These picks shouldn't really surprise you, as Google made its intentions known last year regarding the cities into which it may or may not expand. Google says that the Raleigh-Durham expansions would include the areas of Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, durham, Garner, Morrisville, and Raleigh. As far as the Atlanta expansion goes, Google has said it would include the areas of Avondale Estates, Brookhaven, College Park, Decatur, East Point, Hapeville, Sandy Springs, and Smyrna.
Google Fiber is currently available in Kansas City, Provo, UT, and Austin, TX.
