Blink and it’s easy to miss Google Fiber news. Just this month, the company offered progress reports on multiple GFiber markets, including some that hadn’t been previously announced.

On March 11, the company said it was working in Pocatello and Chubbuck, Idaho.

On March 18, the company noted that service was available in an apartment and condo building in Hillsborough, North Carolina, which is near Duke University. This is the first location where service will be available in Hillsborough.

On March 19, the company said the City of Blue Springs, Missouri city council approved a license agreement to allow GFiber to expand into the community. Blue Springs is located 19 miles east of Kansas City, which was Google Fiber’s first market more than a decade ago.

Last week, the company broke ground at its first community in Huntersville, N.C. Six days ago, Google Fiber said it had begun construction in Round Rock, Texas, which is part of the Austin metro area.

Four days ago, the news came of network expansion in Glenaire, Missouri – another community in the Kansas City metro.

Google Fiber also has been touting its expansion plans via a barbecue in Omaha—a market we first started hearing about in connection with the company back in 2022.

And yesterday, the company announced it would expand in Stallings, N.C., part of which is in populous Mecklenburg County and part of which is in less populated Union County.

The updates about GFiber markets came via GFiber social media.

One thought on “Google Fiber Offers Updates on GFiber Markets, Including Some Not Announced Before

  1. The problem is that the apartment and condo building is likely also the last place in Hillsborough that will be connected. Google Fiber has a long, sordid history of wiring up a few condos and calling it a day. All their press releases are total BS. They haven’t connected any existing cities, actually abandoning one city, and they aren’t likely to perform any better in Pocatello or Austin either.
