Google is quite serious about expanding its Internet reach, and has now decided to attain gigabit internet provider Webpass. With this move, the company plans on expansion of its Fiber rollout in urban areas.
The announcement comes from Webpass President Charles Barr, who writes, “Google Fiber has entered into an agreement to acquire Webpass. Google Fiber and Webpass share a commitment to creating fast, abundant Internet connectivity in the U.S. By joining forces, we can accelerate the deployment of superfast Internet connections for customers across the U.S.”
Webpass offers services across five major regions, and plans to grow its services in current operational cities including San Francisco, Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley, San Diego, Miami, Miami Beach, Coral Gables, Chicago, and Boston, further adding to Google Fiber’s growing list of operational cities.
