AUSTIN (KXAN) — Nearly two years after Google announced it was bringing Google Fiber to Austin, some homes in South Austin are finally connected to the grid.
The area that is seeing the most installations is Bainbridge Villas apartment complex on Southridge Drive. According to Mark Strama of Google Fiber, they will ramp up installs the Bluebonnet fiberhoods after sign-ups close in those fiberhoods on January 29.
