ORLANDO, FL: U.S. based real estate investment trust, Parkway Properties inked a deal with Google Fiber, a subsidiary of Google, to bring gigabit speed internet service to many of its office properties in Atlanta, Austin and Charlotte. Once the technology is up and running in these cities, the tenants will be empowered with the option to access the 1- gigabit service.

Google’s Giga power service includes small business offerings that leverages internet speeds up to 1000 megabits per second, which is almost 100 times more than the present average speeds in U.S. Now, clients will get access to faster internet service while video chatting, uploading videos, playing online games and many other endless possibilities. Users can experience faster speed with a wired connection, and also in wireless connection using the Network+ Box router designed to the latest standards.

"The implementation of Google Fiber reinforces Parkway's commitment to offering customers a state-of-the-art technology platform," states Joel Anderson, Vice President, Parkways. "Google Fiber will allow customers to increase productivity and gain a distinct strategic advantage."

Customers can securely enjoy terabyte of cloud storage with Google Drive, helping in backing up files and enhancing access to it from anywhere.

If the technology finds its way in justifying its potential, then the existing deal can put up in a good standing for a similar agreement across entire Parkway portfolio while expanding its service area.

 "The partnership will focus on what matters most, whether that means taking advantage of the latest technologies, reducing wait times on the web or providing faster services to customers. We're looking forward to working with Parkway to bring gigabit Internet to properties across the country" says Lee Bienstock, Head of National Real Estate Partnerships, Google Fiber.
