Google Shutting Down Its Louisville Fiber Network

LOUISVILLE, KY — Google Fiber announced in its official blog that it is turning off its fiber network in Louisville, Kentucky, for good on April 15, 2019, giving customers their final two months of service for free.

The company cited construction problems that disrupted residents and created service issues for customers. Google trialed new construction methods including shallow trenching into city streets covered by a sealant that didn’t hold. This was among the reasons it gave for shutting down the network.

Google has assured customers that its networks in other cities will continue operations, signing up and installing new customers every day.
