Google to launch ultrafast broadband Internet to United States
Google plans a test that will provide 50,000 to 500,000 people with fiber-optic broadband Internet access with a network speed of a gigabit per second starting as soon as this year.
“We’re planning to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the United States. We’ll deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections,” Google product managers Minnie Ingersoll and James Kelly said in a blog post Wednesday. “Our goal is to experiment with new ways to help make Internet access better and faster for everyone.”
At this point, the question is pretty much: when will Google dominate the world?
