Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) Fiber is working with the Housing Authority of the City of Austin (HACA) on a low-income Internet adoption program, called Unlocking the Connection, for the 4,300 people who live in public housing in the Texas city.

Google Fiber plans to provide a free fiber connection to any existing HACA property in a neighborhood that meets its signup goal to get Google Fiber, as well as computers to HACA education and training centers and funding for digital literacy training. Basic Internet speeds are free for 10 years, and recipients can upgrade to pay for gigabit service.
