Google Fiber will provide service to some apartments, condos, and affordable housing properties in San Francisco, using existing fiber.
By using existing fiber to connect some apartments and condos, as we’ve done before, we can bring service to residents more quickly. This approach will allow us to serve a portion of San Francisco, complementing the City’s ongoing efforts to bring abundant, high-speed Internet to the City by the Bay.
As part of Google’s work in San Francisco, they want to help residents get online for the first time. One of their leading initiatives will be connecting some public and affordable housing properties to gigabit speed Internet—for free. In partnership with the Nonprofit Technology Network (NTEN), we’re also bringing the Digital Inclusion Fellowship to San Francisco. NTEN is accepting applications from organizations to host fellows who will teach people to set up email accounts, apply for jobs, access content across the web, and more. Through these efforts, Google hopes to make the Internet more affordable and accessible for those most affected by the digital divide.
