Google Fiber might be coming to a city near you! The tech giant announced this week that it is on the move and invited three cities to become Fiber cities: Louisville, San Diego, and Irvine, California will all take the next step.

That step, according to Jill Szuchmacher, the Fiber Expansion Director, is a joint planning session with the individual city leaders. Each part will have to pitch in to the process: Google will conduct a detailed study to detect anything that could negatively affect construction and the high ranking city officials must complete a checklist that was provided by Google. The items on the list will prepare the cities for a large-scale gigabit build.

"We've seen that this planning process is helpful, both for Google Fiber and city officials," Szuchmacher said. "Working together, we can take a massive infrastructure project and break it into manageable pieces."

Once everything is completed by both parties, Google will determine if they believe Fiber will still be a good fit. Just because they have been selected, it doesn't mean that the residents will have their super-fast internet anytime within the next few months.

"It's clear that Irvine, Louisville, and San Diego have strong leaders at city hall, who are passionate about bringing fiber to their communities and making the Internet more accessible for everyone," Szuchmacher wrote.

Each city will work from its own timeline, according to PC Mag:

"And regardless of whether Google Fiber comes to the region, this process gives cities a head start in welcoming any gigabit provider to the area," the blog said.

Google Fiber is currently only offered in Kansas City, Austin, and Provo, Utah. There are plans to expand to Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City, and San Antonio.

Fiber costs about $70 a month or an option for free 5 Mbps Internet, if you pay the $300 installation fee.
