Google is considering installing Fiber, its 1000 Mbps internet service, in Chicago and Los Angeles. Fiber is live in three cities across the US -- Austin, Provo and Kansas City -- and it's heading to six more for certain, from Salt Lake City to Raleigh-Durham. Los Angeles and Chicago join eleven other cities on Google's radar, including Portland, Phoenix, San Diego and Tampa.

"As we kick off our usual checklist process, we'll work closely with city leaders to collect detailed information about each metro area," Google writes. The blog post continues, "While we can't guarantee that we'll be able to bring Fiber to Chicago and LA, this is a big step for these cities and their leaders. Planning for a project of this size is a huge undertaking, but we'll be sure to keep residents updated along the way."
