Google Fiber is expanding again. This time the company is bringing its gigabit Internet to Salt Lake City, Utah after launching in nearby Provo back in 2013.

As usual, Google is rolling out Fiber where it’s requested the most. That means Salt Lake City residents will need to sign up if they want to bring the super-fast internet service to their neighborhoods. The company also works with local city leaders to plan out the entire process.

It could be a while before Salt Lake City actually gets Google Fiber, it’s simply listed as a new destination for the service, but the city has already joined an extremely exclusive club. Google Fiber  is currently limited to just Austin, TX; Kansas City; and Provo, UT. The company also has plans to expand to the east coast starting with Atlanta, GA; Nashville, TN; and Charlotte and Raleigh-Durham, NC.

You can check out a the full Google Fiber map below, which includes possible plans to hit the west coast as well. Hopefully it’s not too long before that map really starts to fill up, though for now Google’s certainly taking its time rolling out Fiber.
