Google Fiber could be coming to Austin, TX next



quote:

Google and the City of Austin, Texas have sent out invites for a press conference for "a very important announcement" next week, according to VentureBeat, and it is expected that the two will reveal that the city will be the next to receive Google Fiber. VentureBeat cites "multiple sources" that tell the website that the announcement will revolve around Google's gigabit internet service, but it's possible that the event will reveal some other partnership, like a new Google campus.

"On Tuesday, April 9, at 11 a.m., 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. We anticipate more than 100 community leaders and elected officials to be in attendance to celebrate this announcement. The event invitation is attached for your convenience. Although we cannot share the details of the announcement with you in advance, we know readers will want to learn more, so we encourage you to join us on Tuesday."

Super high speed internet and TV that comes at a cheap price because with Google owning the pipe they can track everything you do everywhere on the Internet.

Google Fiber is 100 times faster than your broad band internet

It is the best thing to happen to the internet since the internet. Also if you happen to live in a neighborhood which has Google Fiber and you don't want to pay $120 per month for it, they will give you regular broadband (at current speeds) for free.

Seriously, I don't think there isn't more admirable company in the world currently than Google. They revolutionized Mapping (you can street view the Mount Everest now for crying out loud!). They will be the first with driver-less car technology. They do so many things amazingly well.

Austin is in Texas.

Texas is in the Southern part of the country.

It's not like we're talking quantum physics here.

Unless this is some sort of "I'm from Austin, we don't like to be lumped in with anyone else from the south." kind of ordeal.

Because Austin is so close to those places.



So is Houston, TX not considered the south?

If you think there is a shred of Southern culture in Austin then you haven't ever been. It's not a knock on the city, just a fact. The thread is about Google Fiber so let it go.

Are you serious? Just because there isn't any southern culture in the city, doesn't mean that Austin, TX is not in the south. No I won't let it go because it's beyond ridiculous.

So because Austin is in Texas it should be considered a great Southern city?

Yes, because it's geographically located in the south.

Want to talk about the food court now?

You're 3 hours, tops, from Houston, TX and Austin isn't part of the south?

Sounds to me like someone is self-righteous.
