"Dallas is already one of the best cities to work in tech," wrote Jill Szuchmacher, Google Fiber's director of expansion. "Google Fiber will help Dallas attract even more tech talent, and push the city further toward the future." And since Google has already brought Fiber to other Texas cities, it likely has a decent understanding of its local politics and environment.
Google won't be alone in Dallas, though. AT&T is also based in the city, and it already has its GigaPower fiber internet service available in some areas. AT&T is also planning to bring more fiber service to southern Dallas eventually.
Google Fiber is currently available in six cities, and it's in the process of rolling it out in another six. Dallas is now the 12th potential city to get the service.
