Google Fiber to challenge Comcast, Charter, Bright House in latest service expansion

Google Fiber said that it will expand to Oklahoma City, Jacksonville and Tampa, marking the next wave of growth for one of the cable industry's biggest competitive threats. The company will challenge Comcast, Bright House Networks, Charter Communications and other cable operators that operate in those three new markets.

"These growing tech-hubs have a strong entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to small business growth," Google said. "Their list of accolades is long -- from Jacksonville's title as a top 10 city for tech jobs, to Tampa Bay's #2 spot on the list of best cities for young entrepreneurs, to Oklahoma City's recognition as the #1 city to launch a business. One of our goals is to make sure speed isn't an accidental ceiling for how people and businesses use the Web, and these cities are the perfect places to show what's possible with gigabit Internet."

Alongside 1 Gbps Internet speeds, Google Fiber also offers a range of TV offerings. Post
