Google announces $10 billion investment in US expansion amid government antitrust probes

Google CEO Sundar Pichai said in a blog post Wednesday that the company is investing more than $10 billion this year in data centers and offices across the United States. The move comes as Google faces increased scrutiny from U.S. regulators. Leaders of the House Judiciary Committee in September requested documents from the company, raising antitrust concerns. The Federal Trade Commission said in February that it’s examining prior acquisitions made by Google parent Alphabet. And the DOJ in July announced a broad antitrust review of Big Tech. Google will spend the money to expand its presence in Colorado, Georgia, Massachusetts, Nebraska, New York, Oklahoma, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington and California, Pichai said.
