AT&T: We're Building High Speed Fiber In Austin, Too
Not to be outdone by the announcement that Google is going to bring its Google Fiber high speed project to Austin, AT&T said this afternoon that it will be building an advanced, fiber optic infrastructure project in Austin, delivering speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second. At&T said 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. AT&T did not detail when it would be rolling out its own fiber network--Google expects to connect homes sometime in 2014--or the neighborhoods it would first deploy its own fiber.
