San Jose's Google Fiber Rollout Is Delayed

According to this article, just over a year after announcing Google Fiber would be coming to San Jose, Alphabet has just informed the city that they're putting the rollout on hold to "explore cheaper alternatives."

Google has told at least two Silicon Valley cities that it is putting plans to provide lightning-fast fiber internet service on hold while the company explores a cheaper alternative. The news comes nearly three months after San Jose officials approved a major construction plan to bring Google Fiber to the city. Mountain View and Palo Alto also were working with Google to get fiber internet service but said Monday that the company told them the project has been delayed.
