UT Austin Student Housing Provider Dangles One Gigabit Internet
How do you make your student housing appealing to the new, always-connected, high speed Internet generation? If you're student housing provider American Campus Communities, you provide one Gigabit Internet service to your student housing. The company, which manages student housing across the U.S., said this week that it will offer the one Gigabit speed of access to The Callaway House Austin, an off campus community serving students at UT Austin. The company said it is tapping Austin Internet company CampusConnect to provide the high speed access, which the company said is 100 times faster than the average cable Internet in American households. The connection speed is comparable to Google's big project to bring one gigabit fiber connectivity into certain markets.
