To the dismay of NYC residents, a Google spokesperson has confirmed to Ars Technica that the company has no plans to bring Google Fiber to New York.
Here is the brief, but to the point statement made from the Google spokesperson.
Don’t read into the job listing. We’ve had a full team of folks working on Fiber in the New York office for years. We don’t currently have any plans to bring Google Fiber to New York. We’re entirely focused on building out our networks in Kansas City, Austin, and Provo, and on exploring the possibility of bringing Fiber to the 34 locations we announced in February.
Well that kind of sucks. Sorry, NYC residents.
