Google Fiber Pauses Operations Until Further Notice

Access, the Alphabet internet division containing Google Fiber, is laying off about nine percent of its staff and "pausing" fiber operations while looking for alternate ways to deliver internet service to new cities. Craig Barratt who is stepping down from hist post as the CEO of Access, said: "Some of our efforts will remain unchanged, but others will be impacted. In terms of our existing footprint, in the cities where we've launched or are under construction, our work will continue. For most of our "potential Fiber cities" — those where we've been in exploratory discussions — we're going to pause our operations and offices while we refine our approaches."
