Google Fiber is adding service to East Austin, according to an email sent out to potential customers this week.
A public relations representative said additional details—such as the specific locations in which people will be able to sign up for the cable television and broadband internet service—are not available, but sign-ups will start soon, according to the email. The service provides download speeds of up to a gigabit per second.
"We've been working hard to build our network in Austin," the email states. "While there's still lots more digging to do, sign-ups will be open next month."
Among the future East Austin service areas in which sign-ups are ongoing are Ben White, Dove Springs, East Oltorf, East Riverside, Montopolis and Onion Creek. A map of the neighborhoods in which sign-ups are taking place for Google Fiber can be found on its website.
