Somebody's gotta have the inside scoop on Google Fiber launching tomorrow..??

https://fiber.google.com/savethedate/

Live broadcast over YouTube tomorrow. Anybody have any early news on this? Will it be available all over the Metro? How long will the waiting list be?

Anybody know anything? I'm impatient.

Will be interesting to see how aggressive the Austin build out is. The pace has been a bit Zzzz here.


Who are the big internet/cable incumbents there?

They didn't skip over OP to go to Olathe.

Olathe:
A. The County Seat
B. Already had google laying fiber lines down last summer before the official "agreement" this year.
C. Is the home of two government contractors, Honeywell and Garmin. Whereas OP really only has Sprint, which isn't major in this case.

It makes no sense otherwise. Overland Park should be their moneymaker. The place they go to to recoup the losses of running fiber in the inner city where their saturation will be lower.
As explained above, it makes perfect sense why Olathe would "get" it first. Overland Park didn't make demands, in fact, Overland Park wasn't even on their radar before Olathe. On top of everything I listed, Google also ran an Ad Campaign last year when they announced KC's fiber deal. Basically, it was a popularity contest, the "next" city with the highest "sign ups" would get the fiber plan, on top of the logistics involved in getting it there.

As an example, Olathe blew OP, Lenexa, and Shawnee away in the voting, more residents from Olathe voted than those three combined.

Officially or unofficially? I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt, that there is already an agreement in place with Overland Park for Google Fiber.

Except for that isn't true. Google Fiber has been approved and agreed upon for Overland Park. It just isn't public knowledge yet, and might not be for some time now, but rest assured, it is coming, and I'll guarantee that.

Well I think Overland Park and Olathe are better thought of as suburbs of Kansas City than new launch areas for Google Fiber. Austin will be the first expansion outside of the KC area.

It's really just Time Warner. Some areas have uverse and some have a local provider called Grande.. and there is CLEAR wireless broadband. Google Fiber will absolutely DESTROY them though.

OH and just a note... Google Fiber says NO to hosting servers so no chance for me to host CP at home.

Good. **** Time Warner. Sounds about the same as here. Time Warner with uverse overbuilding.


I'm a bit surprised Time Warner hasn't reacted more here, but I'm sure that'll come when Google starts reaching more people. So far they've mostly just complained - you can tell is drives them crazy that people are actually excited about a cable/internet provider, when normally people put it up there as a necessary evil.

This may have been posted earlier in the thread so forgive me if Q, but this has been one of TWC's responses. It makes me hate them more.

" Rob is a Time Warner Cable customer, and he's received two really interesting things from them lately. First, a 50% speed boost: they claim to have upgraded the speed of his home Internet connection. That's neat. Oh, and they've also cut his bill, from $45 to $30. Wow! What has prompted this amazing treatment? Years of loyalty and on-time payments? No, not exactly. Rob lives in Kansas City, pilot site for Google Fiber. Even though they have shut off people in other states for using too much bandwidth. Is Google making them show that it's not that hard to provide good service and bandwidth?"

Why Austin, and not expand a little ways over to Lawrence? Knology/WOW and AT&T are the WORST.

heh, AT&T announces plans to build a gigabit fiber network in Austin area now.

The consumer wins!



http://www.att.com/gen/press-room?pi...eless-networks


AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) said today that it is pleased to see local communities and municipalities acknowledging the promise and power of economic development associated with telecommunications investment.

“Most encouraging is the recognition by government officials that policies which eliminate unnecessary regulation, lower costs and speed infrastructure deployment, can be a meaningful catalyst to additional investment in advanced networks which drives employment and economic growth,” said Randall Stephenson, AT&T chairman and CEO.

Today, AT&T announced that in conjunction with its previously announced Project VIP expansion of broadband access, it is prepared to build an advanced fiber optic infrastructure in Austin, Texas, capable of delivering speeds up to 1 gigabit per second. AT&T’s expanded fiber plans in Austin anticipate it will be granted the same terms and conditions as Google on issues such as geographic scope of offerings, rights of way, permitting, state licenses and any investment incentives. This expanded investment is not expected to materially alter AT&T’s anticipated 2013 capital expenditures.

AT&T consistently invests in U.S. communities -- $98 billion in capital in the past five years, more than any other public company -- and remains committed to working with any metropolitan community to reach agreement on incentives to improve the climate and speed of overall telecommunications infrastructure investment – facilitating both wired and wireless broadband access. Our potential capital investment will depend on the extent we can reach satisfactory agreements
