Google Fiber comes to San Francisco→

Ars Technica:

But in the San Francisco case, Google is not saying what entity it is leasing or buying fiber from or when it will start offering service.
”We aren’t disclosing specific details about our agreement,” Google told Ars. “We’re just beginning to reach out to property managers and owners today, so we don’t have details about specific properties or timeline.” Google also did not say how many buildings in San Francisco will receive service.

I wonder if they’re leasing some of the cable put in by the city, state, or federal government? Might be the sort of thing you’d want to keep quiet, just to keep Comcast from screaming too loudly.1


  1. Well, less “loudly” and more “by throwing obnoxious amounts of money at the government to make it stop.”
