Google Fiber in NashvilleGoogle Fiber has made its way to Nashville, with four apartment and condominium buildings in the downtown area now connected to the company’s gigabit-speed internet service. As you might remember, Google first announced bringing Google Fiber to Nashville well over a year ago, but now nearly 15 months after that initial announcement, limited deployment has apparently begun.

Middle Tennessee Real EstateAlthough Nolensville, TN is just a small little town about 35 to 40 minutes south of Nashville, it’s a place that is seeing tremendous growth that doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
