I certainly hope so. Every additional city where Google expands to will show that it’s possible to provide reasonably priced internet access without lying about per-byte-billing and with great speeds. Even those who chose not to get it will benefit, as I am sure Time Warner Cable will conveniently bump up speeds and reduce prices “just because” (while denying any impact from potential competitor).
I hope the service will arrive in Austin soon.
p.s. it might also explain the reason Time Warner Cable has sent me a letter recently about “extending the promotion” and how they have bumped speeds for some plans (of course that could be a coincidence)
