Google Fiber to Launch in Austin in December

Okay all of you Austinites, begin icing down the Champaign and get the Hors d'oeuvres ready, it’s almost time to celebrate. Even though it took Google a little longer than expected, their ultrafast Internet service is set to go live in December.

Austin will be the third location for Google Fiber. The service, which offers Internet speeds of 1 gigabit per second, about 100 times the U.S. average, came to Kansas City, Mo., first and then Provo, Utah.
