Google Fiber officially selects Louisville, KY to run its new gigabit play, from Tech Republic:

Google Fiber has confirmed that the next city to receive its gigabit internet service will be Louisville, KY. As TechRepublic first reported on Tuesday, a day before the official announcement, Google Fiber has been courting the Derby city for years, but it has finally decided to begin building out its service in Louisville.

The company is expected to soon file a permit to begin construction on the network, as noted by the Louisville Courier-Journal. As is typical with fiber buildouts, the service will start in test communities before expanding to other parts of the city. The Courier-Journal also reported that construction will be done in phases to “minimize disruption,” which also means that it could take time to get the service up and running in Louisville as Google Fiber experiments with new technologies.

The Google Fiber build-out in Louisville will rely partly on fixed wireless technologies (from its Webpass acquisition) to help deliver the service to customers. In an investigate report released February 9, 2017, TechRepublic predicted a wireless strategy for last mile connections, as a means of pushing back against impending competition from AT&T.
