Google Won't Have the Stomach To Expand Google Fiber

This guy seems to think that Google doesn't have the stomach to expand Google Fiber to more than two or three more cities. What do you think?

Google could probably take over the broadband industry if they targeted particularly uncompetitive markets, they'll just ultimately lack the willpower to do so. Over the next few years, Google will likely take the inevitable turn from innovator and disruptor to turf protector, and their interest in these kinds of disruptive projects will wane. It would be very surprising to see Google Fiber expand to anything more than three or four cities in total.
