The first of Google’s three planned Fiber service extensions to California is currently under construction in San Francisco.
While the city hasn’t officially announced any dates, Google’s new headquarters is set to open in 2017.
And Google Fiber’s parent company, Charter Communications, is currently preparing to start building the second phase of the project.
While Charter is a public utility, Google is allowed to keep the entire network under contract for $45 billion, and it’s not yet clear if that’s enough to pay for Google Fiber, or if Google could even keep it up indefinitely.
Google Fiber is the next generation of Google Fiber that the company is aiming to build out over the next two years.
The idea is to eventually roll out the service to a dozen million households by 2021, with the company using its massive network of fiber optics to reach nearly two-thirds of the state’s homes.
The other part of Google is its wireless division, which plans to deploy 100 million wireless internet connections by 2020.
It’s unclear if that includes Fiber as well.
