Google Fiber expands to Austin

The next city to get Google’s ultra-high-speed Fiber network is Austin, Texas. Google Fiber offers Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second, which Google says is 100 times faster than the average American Internet user’s service.

Austin will be only the second city in the U.S. to get Google’s broadband service, which is said to be 100 times faster than the competition and doubles as an alternative to cable or satellite TV providers.
It’s a resource that could help make our city even more innovative and make our city even stronger,” said Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell, at a press conference.

The gigabit service is likely to be offered with the same tariffs as in Kansas, with no installation charge. This package also comes with 1TB (terabyte) of storage on Google Drive.
Alternatively subscribers can opt for a broadband plus TV service at a price of $120 (£75).
The third option is to pay a one-off $300 (£189) installation fee in return for free broadband at speeds of 5Mbps.

FiberThe one-gigabit-per-second speed may also accelerate Austin’s already burgeoning tech hub. Fiber has already made Kansas City attractive to several start-ups. Austin hosts offices for several tech giants – including Facebook, Apple, and Dell, and some observers are expecting another tech boom for Austin.

Indeed, shortly after Google’s conference, AT&T announced it will also offer 1 gigabit connections in Austin. It’s part of AT&T’s “Project VIP,” a bid to expand broadband access.
