The Work

Starting in 2015,  FINN Partners kicked off a public relations campaign to officially launch Google Fiber’s presence in Nashville. The industry’s largest competitors put up a significant fight, however FINN navigated Google Fiber through these obstacles — and COVID — by building goodwill with the community in myriad ways.

In fact, our program built such strong grassroots support for GFiber, we sustained the same level of excitement with Nashvillians from Day One through to the full rollout of the service across the city, several years later. The Nashville Business Journal named “Google Fiber Goes Live” as its Story of the Year, capturing the overwhelming interest and buzz FINN’s program generated throughout Tennessee.

GFiber helped transform Nashville into a regional hub for innovation and technology, and FINN’s approach created a comms blueprint for the company’s expansion into other cities. Building on this success, GFiber expanded its partnership with FINN to launch its service into markets including Atlanta, Huntsville, and Louisville, and there are still more to come.
