Google Fiber Is Coming To Florida (But Not Miami Yet)

Google Fiber announced last week that Tampa and Jacksonville could soon get high-speed internet and TV service from the company.

Google did not say that it is exploring adding any other Florida cities, but a recent analysis by Techrepublic says that Miami ranks as the second-most likely city in the country where the service could expand to. According to the article, Google already has a data center in Miami, and the city ranks as one of the most fiber-connected in the country.

AT&T and Comcast both recently began offering gigabit internet service in parts of the Miami area, but both companies charge higher prices and have poor ratings from consumers. AT&T monitors web browsing unless customers pay a $29-per-month fee, while both Comcast and AT&T have announced customer-unfriendly usage caps on lower-speed plans.

The problem isn’t size it’s corrupt politicians. In order for Google to move in and drop infrastructure they have to jump through hoops obtaining permits. If city officials agree with Google’s goals then this would be easy but since most officials are sitting inside Comcast or ATTs pockets it’s hard to bring this sort of change. Miami politicians don’t care about their constituents they just want money.

How can they not think of Miami when they think of Florida?. They should begin here then work northward.

Miami City proper is similar in size regarding population and smaller land wise than the other cities selected. Miami city proper is only 33 square miles measuring only land. The other selected cities are in the 100+ range. And Google doesn’t have to wire the whole metro area. They can wire Miami city proper and expand outwards at their convenience. As far a metro area, Atlanta and San Diego are similar to Miami’s metro area in size, and they were selected. So Miami would be perfect for them to expand to.
