Super Fast! Google Fiber Heads to Austin

(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Google is said to be bringing supercharged internet service Google Fiber to the Austin, Texas area. According to local news affiliate KVUE, an announcement regarding the matter will arrive Tuesday. Other specifics weren’t provided.

The move to the capital of Texas should come as no surprise though. According to a report from Tech Crunch, Austin was a frontrunner to initially receive the service but later lost out to Kansas City.

Google Fiber maintains its 100x faster than average internet speeds. Rates are as follows: $120 a month for gigabit + TV, $70 a month for Gigabit Internet and free Internet with a one time fee of $300.

In February, a report from EETimes.com noted that Google was expanding its Fiber service to provide support for small businesses.
