Google Fiber Seeks Largest Growth Spurt in Seven Years

Alphabet Inc. subsidiary Google Fiber is looking to bring its high-speed fiber internet service to five U.S. states in what would be its largest business expansion since 2015. Google Fiber chief executive Dinni Jain confirmed on Wednesday that the company seeks to bring its services to multiple cities in the states of Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Nebraska, and Nevada. This is the first interview that Jain has given since becoming chief executive in 2018.

Currently, the company serves 17 metro areas across the United States, including previously announced projects in Mesa, Arizona and Colorado Springs, Colorado. According to Jain, the company is not seeking to launch its fiber network across the entire nation, but rather in areas where access to high-speed internet is lacking.

“There was an impression 10 years ago that Google Fiber was trying to build the entire country,” Jain explained. “What we are gesturing here is, ‘No, we are not trying to build the entire country.'”

Google’s foray into becoming an internet service provider began in 2010 after founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin grew tired of waiting for U.S. Congress to pass legislation aimed at advancing the industry through higher speeds at lower costs.
