Well, it looks as if decades of minimal infrastructure updates are finally working out for Oklahoma City.
Google, makers of that thing you use so often you almost dont realize it, has announced its looking at Oklahoma City as a future site for its high-speed Internet service, Fiber.
After years of swallowing Cox and AT&Ts monopolistic control of Oklahoma Citys access to the Internet, we might be in line for a deep drilling of Googles high-speed fiber-optic cables, which promise download and upload speeds of 1,000 megabits per second.
By way of comparison, Coxs Internet Ultimate package boasts up to 150 megabits per second download and only 20 megabits per second upload speeds.
AT&T has GigaPower, but its not in OKC.
Google Fibers Director of Expansion Jill Szuchmacher said challenges could pop up, including topography issues and access to local, existing infrastructure.
Dont worry, Jill! Theres little existing infrastructure! Dig away.
You want us to dig? Well do it. Whatever it takes for that sweet, sweet Fiber.
