After months of waiting and with little word from Google, news comes today that Google Fiber, the pioneering high-speed Internet system being constructed on both sides of the state line, apparently has a launch date. This morning, Google sent out the above invitation to an event next Thursday at which the "next chapter of the internet" will be announced. It's scant on details (a spokeswoman was similarly mum on the phone), but it appears to be the beginning of blinding Internet access.
A Google Web page also tells visitors to save the date for July 26. It has an option to sign up for news about the announcement.
