Google Possibly Eyeing NYC as Latest Target for Google Fiber Expansion

google logo flat new

A recent job listing from Google shows that the company is eyeing an expansion of Google Fiber into New York, New York. The listing is for a Regional Sales Manager (shoutout to TDWP), a role which will essentially evangelize Google Fiber to property management companies and negotiate contractual language for the service. 

The last time Google mentioned expanding Google Fiber, there was no mention of the New York area, but this will be great news for anything living around the Big Apple.

If you think you have what it takes to be a good candidate for the position, hit up the Google source link below to apply.

Cue the Ron Paul gif.

    Boo!! Bring it to the Silicon Valley where you are based Google!!

  • djdsf

    Just for general knowledge, there is no such place as New York, New York. There is however a Manhattan, New York.

  • NYAvsFan

    Please let them do Brooklyn.

  • BillySuede

    williamsburg is ready.

  • George264

    Oh god, yes please! So sick of Verizon throttling my 75/35 to 15/5 and claiming they are not.

    Google, bring this to the Northern Virginia/DC metro area. Please make it so.

    [quote]Update: Google Fiber downplayed the signficance of the job posting. A Google Fiber spokeswoman said the company has had staff working on fiber in the NYC area, as well as other locations, for years — almost through the the entire duration of the Google Fiber project.

    “We currently have no plans to build in New York — we’re focused on Kansas City, Austin and Provo in addition to the 34 cities where we’re exploring the possibility of Fiber,” Google Fiber spokeswoman Jenna Wandres said via email.[/quote]

    Here’s what NYC is missing (am working on Google Fiber review here)…

    nashville just went though the first step yesterday in allowing google to come here. they past the bill for the ‘fiber huts’. just two steps to go and all will be legalized and ready for google. :):):)

  • socalrailroader

    They need to roll it out to areas that actually NEED this, like here in rural Northwestern California, I mean, we’re in their extended backyard after all. If Google was serious about making broadband more available, they would be rolling it out in areas that are broadband challenged like up here, not in big cities like NYC.

      i think the theory as always is affecting the most population as quickly as possible. They could spend 2 years covering 2 million people or they could spend 2 years covering 20 million people. It also helps with the extra revenue they’d be receiving from the larger populated areas to further expand their coverage.

    NYC will be one of the last places Google Fiber will go. With all the older wiring and mess that comes with it, it would be such a monumental task. That is the reason FiOS is barely in NYC. To get fiber to almost all the buildings in the city is a nightmare for them.

    • malcmilli

      permits were the biggest hurdle, at least early on. I worked with Verizon as a field tech in queens back in 08, and different neighborhoods had to vote on whether or not they wanted fios to come in and do all of the construction. Many places dragged their feet or voted no. NYC has high speed internet everywhere, so installing fiber in NYC physically wouldnt be much different from installing it anywhere else.

    I didn’t think people could afford to live in the same room they sh!t and cook in.

  • Daniel

    OMG, yes please! FIOS promised 100% penetration by umm, last year? That hasn’t remotely happened so I’d welcome ANY competition for the cable companies finally

    • NYAvsFan

      FiOS, available one damn block from my house. My house; “no time frame available”. Uggghhhh

    OMG…here’s hoping Los Angeles is next.

    I’ll oblige, Tim.

    I wish they’d actually launch in the cities they already claim.

    (Still waiting here in Austin)

    • Justin W

      Here’s the difference between you and me – You know it’s coming, and can expect Fiber soon. I don’t have Fiber announced for my location, likely won’t for several years to come, and probably won’t be able to hit these speeds without paying an arm and a leg.

    • earth

      And apparently Austin won’t launch very broadly this year. Here’s something to whet your mouth in meantime…

    If this is true and it gets approved by the city, that would be the easiest job in the world. Regional Sales Manager for Google Fiber vs. the current options? If it’s commission-based, that sales manager is set.

  • they call me Rob

    I’d love to see this happen – specifically in Staten Island since I live there and FiOS seemed to do well in kicking Time Warner to the curb. In reality I don’t think it would happen anytime soon but a man can dream.

  • mondaykiz

    HNNNNNNNGHHHHHHHH

    Binghamton NY bro!!! Come to Bingaling…. Time Warner could six-day… Let’s go Google… Take my info…. As long as I can download Hd p+$* at a high high blazing speed

      Im from the future

      “Possibly” means no

  • chudilo

    Mahahah. Wishful thinking. NYC has too many politicians that would have to be greased to let this happen in a timely manner. If Verizon FIOS hasn’t succeeded.in penetrating most of the inner boroughs after 7 or so years. Google sure as heck isn’t gonna do it either. Maybe a few newly built or remodeled condos. Don’t expect coverage any time soon.

    • AnotherAndroidKid

      Isn’t the pols but the building owners that only let fios in after a nice “deal”

      I wouldn’t be sooo pessimistic..

      • Justin W

        This is very interesting… So they’ve been planning this fiber rollout for several years it seems.

      • http://www.toysdiva.com Toys Samurai

        Well, it’s pessimistic, but it is exactly how the political environment in NYC is like. 7 years ago when I decided to move to Nassau county, just right at the edge of the Queens borough, one of the main driving reason was that FiOS was much widely deployed there than in the city. Fast forward 7 years, Verizon basically gave up covering the whole NYC with FiOS.

    • zepfloyd

      Don’t be so sure. No one said Google would cover all of NYC or even a major part, but they have huge presence in Chelsea and I wouldn’t be surprised if they went for a surrounding neighborhood or two. Google wants to shakeup the market, if they want to be taken seriously by the big guys for attention they are going to have to look beyond the generally tiny places they’ve started at some point. As most things Google, that’s the beta, now comes the more interesting stuff. There’s other job openings for telcom related positions too in NY which would add to the speculation, but it could be nothing or something. Hopefully something.

    • Razma

      verizon? i wouldn’t worry about them, its cablevision that has a stranglehold over NY

  • knightsbore

    New York city is probably the least likely places in the country for a new rollout. Just dealing with all the old buildings, zoning, and vertical modification is a logistics nightmare. I would really doubt in a short term announcement and hope that the hiring is a long term strategy to eventually get fiber going in the city.

    • http://twitter.com/JohnnyACE562 GRAND MASTER SEN$Ei {{-_-}}™

      Maybe that’s that’s why they wanna do it. Tackling the tougher tasks now will help them expand to other cities later. Gotta gain the experience. {{-_-}}

  • pyro74boy .

    Man I wish my city would get Google Fiber that would be just to sweet. Then everyone would be coming over to use my WIFI and then I can charge everyone and make a killing.
