New, 1 comment

Way back in February, Google announced that a slew of cities in the metro area were in the running to get super-crazy-fast Internet through Google Fiber. With speeds of 1,000 megabits per second, more than 100 times faster than average broadband, residents in eight area cities would be poised to watch cat memes microseconds sooner than losers with regular speed Internet. Google says more information is forthcoming, but 10 months is a long time to sustain excitement, and the techno-nerds among us are getting a bit worried things might not pan out as expected.
