City officials in Austin, TX have announced that they are the next city getting Google Fiber. I am currently more jealous than I have ever been of Texas.
Google Fiber is a new broadband Internet network that is 100 times faster than anything available in Austin right now.
“You could upload your entire DVD collection in less than a day,” said local tech blogger Stacey Higginbotham. “It's super fast internet, and it's cheap."
Apparently Google hasn't made their official announcement yet, they're expected to do so on Tuesday, but the media buzz surrounding it makes it all sound pretty definite. Austin, one of the few inland, southern cities I might be willing to ever live, has suddenly become a lot more attractive.
