Google has announced that it will be expanding its Google Fiber 1Gbps internet service to some condos and apartments in San Francisco. Prospective customers can check their address now to see if and when they will receive the option for Google Fiber. Property managers can also contact Google about bringing Fiber to their buildings.

From Google:

We're bringing Google Fiber to some of San Francisco's apartments and condos. We're working with property owners and managers in buildings near existing fiber infrastructure to explore connecting their residents to gigabit Internet.

At the same time, the company will also be bringing Fiber to some of San Francisco's affordable and public housing properties to better connect those who need the internet most. Google recently launched this initiative in Kansas City, Missouri, promising to expand it to affordable and public housing in all of its Fiber cities.

  • "At the same time, the company will also be bringing Fiber to some of San Francisco's affordable and public housing properties to better connect those who need the internet most." I might ruffle some feathers here, but why does that demographic need the internet most? If they can't afford internet, then don't get internet. They don't NEED it any more than the rest of us "need" it. Posted via the Android Central App
  • Uhm most jobs don't even use paper apps they use the internet. The internet just isn't some niche tool anymore. Posted via the Android Central App
  • They may need it to apply for jobs. Why is there always that one jerk who has to take a dump on the poor?
  • Why can't someone ask a simple question without someone being rude? Did you ever stop to think that the person asking the question really wanted to know why? Posted via my Nexus 6
  • Even poor kids should have the best tools at hand in order to do homework, study, research. Better educations, better students, better jobs, fewer poor people, fewer public housing properties. A win for humanity.
