Google Fiber was announced at the end of 2012 after the company had introduced a fiber network build in the Kansas City metropolitan area in the US. The company subsequently announced expansion to US cities including Austin, Provo, Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Salt Lake City and San Antonio. But by October 2016, all expansion plans were put on hold, though Google Fiber continues to serve 69,000 TV and 450,000 broadband subscribers. What had once seemed the unstoppable rise of "gig networks" suddenly seemed in doubt.
Join us for the next Broadband Agendas webinar from ICF to learn where gig networks are going in the wake of Google's pull-out, and what the experience of successful gig networks shows about their potential and pitfalls.
