Google Fiber Prepares to Start Construction in Louisville

Google Fiber today announced it will soon file its first permit for building its network in Louisville. The network construction will be done in phases, which will allow a more efficient build and reduce disruption.

“Many have eagerly waited to hear these words: Google Fiber is coming to Louisville,” Mayor Fischer said. “This next step toward bringing Google Fiber’s super-fast internet network to Louisville demonstrates our city’s commitment to the type of forward-looking innovation that creates opportunities for businesses and families.”

Google Fiber plans to test innovative new ways to deploy super-fast Internet, such as the microtrenching technique already approved by the city. The company is also working on advancing wireless capabilities that would connect communities even faster.

“Google Fiber’s commitment to constructing a gigabit fiber optic network in Louisville is exciting for both our people and businesses, Louisville Metro Council President David Yates said. “The infrastructure will provide a platform for further economic development and technological investment into our community.  The welcome increase in competition for both television and internet will improve the quality and cost of these services throughout our city, positively impacting every customer in this market. Our city has invested much in bringing Google Fiber from Silicon Valley to the Ohio Valley. We are excited to begin seeing the return on that investment for our citizens.”
