Google, Austin Plot Big Announcement
Internet giant Google and the City of Austin are planning something big. But they can't tell you what, yet. An invitation, making the rounds among the technology press, invites Austin technology leaders and the press to join Google and the city in an announcement on Tuesday, April 9th. Speculation on the announcement points to a possible addition of Austin to Google Fiber, Google's effort to bring gigabit fiber to a number of cities. The invitation says that "more than 100 community leaders" and elected officials will be in attendance at the event, which will be held at Brazos Hall. Google Fiber is currently being deployed in Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri.
