Here’s where Google Fiber expanded its network in May 2023
Google Fiber in May 2023 has picked up steam in its network expansion, announcing several new cities across Idaho, Kansas, Utah, and more. Specifically, Google Fiber has expanded to the following locations:
- Chubbuck, ID: Shortly after unveiling Pocatello as its first market in Idaho, Google Fiber disclosed the city of Chubbuck would be its next target in the state. Chubbuck, which is located immediately north of Pocatello, has a population of roughly 15,800.
- Leawood, KS: The operator continues to turn up service in the Kansas City metro area. Select consumers in Leawood, Kansas can now sign up for Google Fiber’s symmetrical 1-gig, 2-gig as well as the 5-gig plan, which launched in February 2023 across four markets. Construction is still in progress in the Leawood area, so not all addresses are eligible yet.
- Liberty, MO: Liberty is the second Kansas City metro market Google Fiber announced in May 2023. It just finalized a license agreement with the city, but so far Google Fiber hasn’t disclosed when it expects construction to begin. Competing providers in Liberty include AT&T Fiber, Spectrum, and T-Mobile’s 5G Home Internet.
- Logan, UT: Google Fiber signed a licensing agreement with Logan, Utah, a city of around 54,000 that’s located about halfway between Pocatello and Salt Lake City. The operator said Logan is its northernmost Utah city to date, and it expects to start construction later in 2023.
- Franklin, TN: Google Fiber isn’t limiting its expansion to the Western states. It also signed a licensing agreement with the city of Franklin, Tennessee. Franklin touts a population of over 80,000 and is located around 19 miles southeast of Nashville, another Google Fiber hub. Construction in Franklin is expected to begin in early 2024, with Google Fiber beginning to serve customers in late 2024.
