COLLEGE PARK, Ga. -- Google Fiber is not a sure thing for College Park after all.
City officials say they prematurely announced on Tuesday that the south Fulton County city was selected for the high-speed Internet service. College Park and eight metro Atlanta cities are still in the running for Google Fiber.
Google Fiber delivers Internet speeds of one gigabit per second -- up to 100 times faster than basic broadband.
Other cities being eyed by Google are Atlanta, Avondale Estates, Brookhaven, Decatur, East Point, Hapeville, Sandy Springs and Smyrna. Google is expected to make an announcement by the end of 2014.
