Google fiber may never leave Kansas City
I would love to have the blazing fast Internet speeds that Google Fiber subscribers in Kansas City have access to. I've hoped Google might eventually roll the service out all around the country. However, some new details on how much that would cost have surfaced making the likelihood of me getting Google fiber very slim.
According to a research note issued by Goldman Sachs, it would cost Google an estimated $140 billion to bring Google Fiber to the entire country. If you cut back the rollout to cover only the major metropolitan areas in roughly 50% of the population, the price tag would still be an estimated $70 billion.
Google is estimated to have about $45 billion in cash on hand. That means even if Google went all in on fiber, it wouldn't have enough money. Google would either need a bunch partners or a massive loan.
