Google Fiber is ramping up construction of its network in San Antonio, the company announced Wednesday.

Company officials said the construction is a big step in bringing super-fast Internet to the Alamo City.

"You'll see us around town digging and stringing fiber cables so that we can deliver Google Fiber's super-fast Internet to the city," Clarissa Ramon, community impact manager of San Antonio, said in a statement. "As we lay thousands of miles of fiber-optic cable throughout San Antonio, we'll keep residents updated along the way."

Ramon said that if work is being done near homes or businesses, contractors will leave door hangers to let residents and businesses know about the construction.

Crews will do their best to leave the construction area in the best possible condition, she said.

Residents with concerns can call a 24/7 construction hotline at 877-454-6959.
