Google Fiber: The new stage for the mega-high speed Internet
After the breaking the silence of more than two years, finally Google has announced its mega ultra-high speed Internet service Google Fiber. Now the new service is likely to available to the residents of its test community in Kanas City, which begins from September.
According to sources, the new connectivity speed of one gigabit per second will be about 100 times faster than the speed most Americans have with their broadband connections, as the company claim.
Google Fiber is composed of thin optical fiber lines that run directly from a person's home to a data center, which is connected to the national Internet backbone.
Google claim that the above service is a direct connection from a person's home to the national backbnone, which will allow users to experience such high, speed Internet. Company says that it was inspired to develop Google Fiber in line with the Federal Communication Commission's 2010 National Broadband Plan, which calls for making high speed internet more widely available in the US.
Google Fiber spokesperson Jenna Wandres said that Google had already done advocacy work around the development of the National Broadband Plan and improving US internet connectivity, and that it set the stage for the company to do even more once the Plan was released.
Google hoped greater internet accessibility and speed could additionally lead to more technological innovation, and set the stage for the future of internet browsing, he added.
After months of laying the infrastructure and groundwork, Google Fiber will finally start home-installation after the pre-registration deadline Sep 9. The internet service is priced at $70 a month, which is competitive with most US broadband internet providers.
Google has claimed that the new internet service could be paired with a television component, Google Fiber TV, which Google says will include regular broadcast channels and thousands of TV shows on demand.
