Search engine giant Google is planning to deploy Wi Fi networks in the cities which have been covered by Google Fiber high speed internet service. The recent revelation has been made in a document by the search engine by circulating to 34 cities which are the next candidates to receive the Google Fiber in 2015.


The document has not mentioned any specific details of the Wi Fi plan but the search engine has said that it will be discussing the Wi Fi plans and related requirements with the city as they move forward with the city during the planning process. If the plan becomes a success then it will be stepped up by Google towards competition with the traditional telecom carriers.

For the citizens of the cities it can also mean an increased reliance on services by the dominant internet company. The search engine has did not answer certain specific questions about the plans but in an email statement it said, “We’d love to be able to bring Wi-Fi access to all of our Fiber cities, but we don’t have any specific plans to announce right now.”

The search engine is also asking the cities to identify the locations so that it can install the utility huts, Every hut will be a windowless 12 foot by 30 foot and need to have a 24 hour access and be on land which the company can lease for about 20 years.
