Google said it plans to use existing fibre to connect apartments and condos in part of San Francisco to deliver its Google Fiber broadband service. Until recently Google Fiber has been focusing on building fibre networks from scratch, but as it has announced in Huntsville, Alabama, the company will use existing fibre to reach customers more quickly. As part of its work in San Francisco, its latest Google Digital city, the company will connect some public and affordable housing properties for free.
