UK telecoms giant Google has confirmed that it will be launching its first ever Fiber service in the UK.
The company’s new “Google Fiber Everywhere” service, which launches this week, will be rolled out across all of the country’s 4G mobile networks, Google’s official UK blog confirmed.
The announcement comes just weeks after it announced that it was also planning to launch a new service in India.
The news comes just days after Google’s parent company Alphabet announced that its internet and mobile division had acquired a number of Google Fiber properties including a fiber-optic network in South Africa and a fiber network in China.
Google Fiber announced the rollout of its new services last September, with its new London-based service expected to be available in the spring.
“The UK has an excellent mix of fast broadband speeds, a rich broadband ecosystem and a high-quality digital infrastructure,” the company said in a statement.
“We are delighted to partner with local businesses and start building our new services here.
We will continue to be focused on building out our network in the country.”
