Let's see, what's the phrasing they use? Oh yeah “people familiar with the matter”... I wouldn't expect the residential to be connected in the near future. There's a clear initial partnership with Irvine Company Apartments at first.

So for now, I am looking at AT&T Gigapower FTTH.

Educated guess is that they stick with their original announcement and go no further: TIC rental apartments and commercial buildings.

http://www.ocregister.com/articles/google-724326-irvine-fiber.html

Here is an update from the Irvine Google Fiber page:

https://fiber.google.com/cities/irvine/

"We’ve begun working with city leaders to explore the possibility of building a super fast network for Irvine. This means understanding local requirements and challenges—from roads and infrastructure to permits and utility paths. We’re also working to connect some apartments and businesses near existing fiber infrastructure, starting with Irvine Company® properties.

We’d love to keep you updated on our progress. Check your address to be among the first to know when we have more to share."


I also checked out their WebPass service. It appears targeted at multi unit buildings (at least 10 units). Not sure if this technology is cost effective to deploy in a less dense neighborhood.

This is not looking good for future competition.

Cox and ATT will now slowdown their gigabit rollout and keep their prices high.

It would be nice if the Woodbridge area residents would stop fighting AT&T from upgrading it's internet speeds.  Maybe we wouldn't be stuck with Cox as the only option.  Fake uverse(dsl) is turd.

My parents had spotty AT&T DSL service up until i switched them to Time-Warner using a cable line.  It's now stable and works much better.

Yeah DSL and Uverse are distant dependent so if you're on the edge of the maximum distance it will be slow and could be unstable.

Some people in Woodbury and Cypress Village are saying they already have Google Fiber installed on Nextdoor.

I checked on their updated webpage: https://fiber.google.com/cities/orangecounty/

$50 for 100 mbps
$70 for 1,000 mbps
$140 for TV + 100 mbps
$160 for TV + 1,000 mbps

I hope they roll out service to older villages as well.
