While it might seem unfair to those of us poking along at a few tens of megabits per second, Kansas City residents are getting a second chance to sign up for Google Fiber, the company posted today.
Internet service provider company Time Warner Cable is set to acquire fiber optic network firm DukeNet in a deal with $600 million, the companies announced today.
Not even a day after Google officially announced plans to expand its Google Fiber service in Austin, Texas, AT&T made plans to launch its own competing service. And now it seems AT&T will get there first. Sort of.
Google sure isn’t wasting any time when it comes to an expansion of its ultra fast Internet Service Google Fiber, but then again neither are other ISPs — even those in rural Vermont.
Well that didn’t take very long.
A leaked press release from gigabit internet organization Gig.U congratulating the city of Austin and Google on their new Google Fiber partnership was quickly removed today.
Google and the City of Austin just sent out a slew of invitations to an event next week, but they declined to provide details on what will be announced.
