Google Fiber went "live" in parts of Charlotte earlier this week, reflecting the Internet giant's continuing commitment to its network despite acknowledged heavy losses. While the company isn't talking on the record about a report it's cutting 50 percent of the Google Fiber work force, WRAL TechWire is told that Google is still chasing what it sees as a huge market opportunity.
Despite reported delays elsewhere, Google Fiber is still on its way to RTP. Sources involved in Google Fiber's Triangle project say the digging and installing of cable continues in what the company boasts is one of the largest infrastructure projects ever taken in the Triangle. And it's not cheap.
In response to a series of questions about Google Fiber's plans for the Triangle, a spokesperson doesn't have much to say. But the statement is an eye-opener. GF says its proposal to test the Triangle for high-speed wireless Internet access doesn't mean a lessening of its Triangle commitment. Google Fiber targets the Triangle as one of the metro areas where it is asking the FCC for permission to test a wireless system as a means to provide ultra-fast Internet service.
