4/6/2013

Google and Austin city officials are expected to announce next week that Austin will be selected as the next city to receive Google Fiber, an ultra-highspeed "gigabit broadband" Internet service. An event scheduled for Tuesday at 11 a.m. says that “the City of Austin and Google will make a very important announcement that will have a positive impact on Austinites and the future of the city.” City officials and Google are not commenting on whether Google Fiber is coming to Austin at this time. More than 100 community leaders and elected officials are expected to be in attendance to celebrate the announcement Tuesday. Google Fiber was first introduced in Kansas City last September. That community was selected from a list of more than 1,100 applicants in 2011. According to Google, the product offers a connection speed 100 times faster than today's broadband.
