/// Austin Is Next Market to Host Google Fiber
Google on Tuesday confirmed that it has selected Texas’ capital city as the next market for its high-speed Internet service. Just days after rumors began to circulate that Austin was the likely candidate for the next rollout of Google Fiber, the company made things official this afternoon. Google will begin connecting homes in Austin by mid-2014, although details about pricing and service tiers have yet to be disclosed. As is the case with the first rollouts in Kansas City, Mo., and Kansas City, Kan., the ultra-high-speed Internet service—it’s 100 times faster than the average broadband connection—will also facilitate a 200-HD channel fiber TV package. At present, Google is offering its 1,000 MB/sec data service and the Google Fiber TV package for $120 per month.
