In an exclusive video interview with NOWCastSA, San Antonio District 1 Councilman Roberto Treviño said ride-hailing company Lyft agreed to return to the city under a pact that includes disclosing to riders - in its app - whether a driver passed a 10-fingerprint background check.
“This agreement is the first of its kind in the United States,” said Treviño.
Google Fiber’s vow to install 4,000 miles of gigabit fiber optic cable in San Antonio over the next two years means those who can already afford broadband Internet will be able to purchase it at blazingly faster speeds. A typical home or small business connection could go from 10 Megabits per second to as much as 1,000 Megabits per second.
