Google Fiber Optic Test

Google today announced an initiative to build broadband networks in local communities around the US as part of a test. Quoting Google:

“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. We plan to offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.”

The full announcement can be found on Google’s blog:

If you ever wanted fiber optic broadband to your home, office, or school now is your chance. Go to the following page and submit your information:

Google is becoming the Wal-Mart of the internet, you want it they’ve got it, only their products are better made (with a few exceptions), and their customer service is of better quality.
