Did Google Accidentally Announce Its Next Fibre City?

In the wee hours of the morning, Google announced the next lucky US metropolis. And then immediately took it back.

As reported by Engadget, Google's fibre site started displaying a banner congratulating Austin, Texas as home to the newest fibre-hood, an announcement which would line up with other rumours that have been swirling. The announcement post showed up around 3AM though, was authored by "SoAndSo" and contained no text. Not too official.

The post has since been removed, with the Googster's April Fool's joke from earlier this week reclaiming its spot at the top of the blog. Unless Google decides to fess up to the truth, we'll have to wait until it's mysterious Austin-based meeting on April 9.
