Free Google Fiber For Thousands of Austin Low Income Residents

Housing Authority of the City of Austin is partnering up with Google Fiber to give free basic service to any resident now living on a HACA property and they could get that service free for ten years. It's part of an initiative called Unlock The Connection. Google is also donating computers to education and training centers like the new Henry Flores Center that opened in South Austin last week. HACA President Michael Gerber says it's right in line with their goal of getting their residents on the path to self-sufficiency. Austin's Housing Authority is the first in the nation with this kind of internet connection service for its clients.
