Google may plant Fiber in tech-friendly Texas capital

Christina DesMarais | April 9, 2013
Dell, Samsung and Intel already have offices in Austin, and soon Google may offer its super fast broadband Internet service there.

And people who opt for the Internet-only version get 1TB of cloud storage on Google Drive. That means a user's every digital asset can be accessible from any Internet-connected device or computer whenever he or she needs it.

If you're jealous that it looks like Fiber may be coming to Austin and not your hometown, just remember this: Fiber users with less-than-stellar equipment or those trying to communicate with others on the Internet not blessed with a great connection aren't going to be very impressed with what they'll get.

If you've ever tried to Skype with someone working with either of these scenarios, you know what I mean.
