Austin is a big city. We’ll start working immediately — but, since we need to build an entirely new infrastructure here, we have a lot of planning and engineering work to do before we can start connecting homes.
We want to build Fiber in areas where there is high demand for service. Starting in 2014, we will be asking your neighborhoods if they want Fiber, and then we’ll build where there is interest. Today, you can enter your email address above to sign up for more information. We’ll email as soon as we have updates.
We hope to have service to our first customers by the middle of 2014. We’ll have more news to share about our packages and signup process as we get closer to that time.
We’re focused within the Austin city limits. The specific boundaries and neighborhood definitions will be announced later. Enter your email above to keep up to date on specifics.
We’ll be offering three product plans: Gigabit + TV, Gigabit Internet and Free Internet. We’ll be announcing more specifics about these plans and pricing for Austin as we get closer to connecting homes in 2014.
