Now, a source tells us that Google may not be as serious as many want them to be about bringing Fiber to the city and outlying areas.
But Oregon was still rough terrain for such a plan, and has bent over backwards to get Fiber.
Tax breaks will be awarded, and Fiber is no longer being entertained as something that will service the entire city, much less the outlying areas Google promised.
Google is reticent to break ground, and it may have everything to do with Portland.
A source familiar with Google s Fiber plans tells me the company has been slow to respond to the city of Portland on various matters, many of which relate to the actual build-out of Fiber throughout Portland and its surrounding areas.
Residents of those Fiberhoods sign up for Fiber, and the Fiberhoods with the most sign-ups are prioritized over others.
