The company has completed their design for building a fiber network and they are ready to begin construction. Google first announced they were bringing their ultra-fast, gigabit speed Internet to Nashville in January. The map outlines will put 3,200 miles of fiber in Davidson County.
“With the design of our Google Fiber network completed, you’ll see us around town digging and stringing fiber cables so that we can deliver Google Fiber’s super-fast Internet to the city,” a Google spokesperson said in an emailed statement. “As we lay thousands of miles of fiber-optic cable throughout (Nashville), we’ll keep residents updated along the way.”
During construction, 18 fiber huts will be built on properties throughout the city and fiber will be attached to more than 100,000 utility poles. Google estimates the project will employ hundreds of workers.
The company will distribute doorhangers in areas where it will be building to let residents know of pending construction. They warn that there will be disruptions but it plans to return streets and landscapes to their present conditions.
Google did not release details on when and where the service will be offered first and has not begun its sign-up process.
