My sources tell me that Google already has the cities lined up that they want to build out their fiber network so why do we keep seeing stories like these?
Personally, I'd love to see the city I was born, raised and educated in be awarded some help from Google. We all know, Philadelphia needs it. Often times I think about setting up my east coast office there, one day, and something like that would be a real lure. Personally, the idea of spending a Spring and Fall in Philadelphia, avoiding the winters and sweltering summers would be fun. So would reconnecting with old friends as well as time spent down on the Jersey shore. And yes those sandwiches, the cheese steaks, the hoagies from Lee's, Shanks and Geno's are certainly, alluring, and then there's the real store front pasta from those mom and pop pasta shops that dot the neighborhoods across the Delaware Valley. But there's more to Philly than just the food and the BYOB restaurants. There's also a growing tech community thanks to the number of universities that surround the City of Philadelphia.
If Google is going to fiber up the City, then the suburbs have to be in step.
