    [Updated] Google Fiber is Un-Officially Rolling Out to Austin, Texas


    Update: The below document was sent out as a dummy press release in case Google made the Google Fiber in Austin, TX official announcement. The original source did not make this clear, so this news is technically not officially confirmed and we updated this story. We will keep you posted if an actual official launch is announced.

    Over the weekend there was some speculation that Google would announced bringing their Google Fiber Broadband service to Austin, TX. The speculation may be right. The 1Gbps Internet service and Fiber-based TV will likely be making its way to the tech-mecca of Texas. Here's the un-official press statement from Gig.U:

    Gig.U Congratulates the City of Austin, TX and Google for Gigabit Expansion

    (WASHINGTON) Today, Google announced it will add Austin, Texas to the Google Fiber project, joining Kansas City, Kansas and Missouri as American communities that have the power to bring next generation networks home. Gig.U, a coalition of three-dozen research university communities working together to support educational and economic development by accelerating the deployment of next generation networks, issued the following statement by Executive Director Blair Levin:

    Gig.U congratulates Google and the City of Austin for their initiative to bring a world-leading network to one of the world's great research university communities. This effort will pay enormous dividends for the country, as it will help develop the human capital America needs to lead a global economy that increasingly creates value with big data and big bandwidth. The Austin project, as well as the recent response to the North Carolina Next Generation Network project demonstrates that university communities are increasingly recognized as attractive partners for next generation network deployments because of the innovative spirit and demand profiles of their residents. We look forward to watching and learning from the exciting growth and innovation to come from the Google Fiber projects, and accelerating such efforts in Gig.U communities throughout the country.
    The source of this info didn't share the most important detail regarding this, and that is "when" it will be coming, but at least folks in Austin know they may be next on the list. Stay tuned for more details.
