Google Fiber to leave Louisville after unsuccessful deployment

Friday 8 February 2019 | 09:53 CET | News
Google has announced it will be turning off its Google Fiber service in Louisville from 15 April, after going live there in October 2017. Google said that the shallow trench method it used in the city has not been successful and that it would need to rebuild the entire network to provide its service, something it does not want to do. Google will give the last two months of service free to customers, as a sort of compensation.
