Grande in Mueller? Google Fiber? Bueller?
by dhs on February 14th, 2016

The muelleraustin.com site now shows Grande as a telecom provider in Mueller, and a recent story in the Stateman (reprinted here: http://www.govtech.com/dc/articles/Austins-Google-Fiber-Rollout-Advancing-Despite-Obstacles.html) says so too.

But Grande's website doesn't indicate I can get service (phase II) - anybody have it?

The same article indicates that Google Fiber may not be here for a while. I think the same company that's doing the Mopac toll lane is building Google's infrastructure.

Sure would like to dump Time Warner - recently their "service" drops out for several seconds to a few minutes many times a day. True on all my devices, even my work laptop that uses a VPN, so it's not a DNS issue or Netflix throttling.

Have you heard anything Doug? I can't stand TW and I"m ready to jump ship.

I checked with Grande, and finally was able to verify that they are servicing parts of 78723, including Mueller, but not most (all?) of the older construction. The person I talked to didn't indicate when/if they might extend their service.

I too hate TW, but right now there aren't any real alternatives. AT&T/SWB and TW have a duopoly, and price their "services" accordingly. And Google is years away, apparently.

I would like to believe that Catellus/City of Austin would have built out the infrastructure in a way that would have made it easy to add new service providers, but apparently not. We certainly hit all the right demographic buttons to justify Grande/Google providing full service to Mueller.
