The current speed of Google Fiber has increased since the company started the project in 2010. After starting with 1Gbps, it launched 2, 5, and 8Gbps plans in selected areas. Instead of waiting for customers to get tired of their internet service, Nick Saporito, Director of Marketing at Google Fiber, says the team works with the idea that “[if] you build it, they will come.” And they haven’t finished building it yet. The group wants 100Gbps and more and uses Wi-Fi 8 and more. Although it’s impossible to say how far 100+Gbps is.
That said, many still don’t have fiber internet in their area for a number of reasons. One is that the growth of Google Fiber has slowed down in recent years. This is something that many have been opposed to, especially since customers would prefer Google Fiber in their town instead of the company expanding to areas that are already supported.
The company seems to remain committed to bringing its services everywhere, saying that it wants to make “gigabit internet the foundation of jobs in the US.” CEO Dinni Jaina added, “We believe that many, if not most, communities across America will have two, or three, fiber providers and a coax provider.”
