Yes it's coming !!
Google announced on April 9th that they will bring fiber to Austin Texas. The city of technology ( dubbed the Silicon Hills ) will have the privelage of getting a 1 Gig download which will dwarf all other competitors download speed in the area. Verizon FIOS was the first to start offering fiber to the home in Texas and now Google will be the 2nd. It appears that Google doesn't just want to be a search engine they also want to be a service provide. This would make sense because they can now control the content that they serve to customers.
Google also provides Google TV which allows customers to stream Net Flix and other services right on their computer or TV. The awesome download speed now means no buffering. Adding a 1 Gig Download to Austins high tech super hub of technology start ups and Google Fiber is just perfect for the city. Kansas City was the first city to get Google Fiber and they are starting to cultivate quite a technology culture.
Good News Austin.. The future is now..
