major space flight, technology, and oil and gas hub and we're not even on the roadmap for future deployment according to the pictures in that article.
I have a hard time thinking of Google Fiber as a serious business if they're ignoring us.
Now if they were ignoring us but they were intentionally targeting places like Jal NM, Pecos TX, Nome AK, Vale OR I would consider them serious. SInce they're just cherry picking mid-sized to large cities that already have reasonably good infrastructure - likely loads of dark-fiber - but ignoring large cities and bergs I can't take them seriously.
Also I know plenty of people in Austin that can't get Google fiber because "they're only near the capital, downtown, and college". Hard to take them seriously.
