“With its technology-centric culture, the Silicon Hills of Austin, TX could have been the perfect city for the first iteration of Google Fiber. Austinites will just have to settle with being only the second city to get the ultra high speed service.” Right now, this is well-founded supposition, rather than confirmed fact, based on an invitation from Google to a joint event this Tuesday which promises an announcement which will “have a positive impact on Austinites and the future of the city.” Another possibility, as PC Magazine points out, is that Google will announce a new Austin office.

UPDATE:  Confirmed, Austin has won the second bid for Google Fiber.
