Google To Offer Superfast Broadband Service


Google said on Wednesday it would build a super high-speed broadband network for up to half a million people in order to experiment with the possibilities of a network running at 100 times current speeds.

The company unveiled its plans to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the United States. Google said that it would 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 plans to offer service at a 'competitive price' to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.

"Our goal is to experiment with new ways to help make Internet access better and faster for everyone," google said.

Here are some specific things that Google is thinking of, as they were described by Minnie Ingersoll and James Kelly, Product Managers at Google:

- Next generation apps: Google wants to see what developers and users can do with ultra high-speeds, whether it's creating new bandwidth-intensive "killer apps" and services, or other uses.

- New deployment techniques: Google will test new ways to build fiber networks, and to help inform and support deployments elsewhere.

- Openness and choice: Google will operate an "open access" network, giving users the choice of multiple service providers. Google added that it would manage their network in an open, non-discriminatory and transparent way.

"Like our WiFi network in Mountain View, the purpose of this project is to experiment and learn. Network providers are making real progress to expand and improve high-speed Internet access, but there's still more to be done. We don't think we have all the answers - but through our trial, we hope to make a meaningful contribution to the shared goal of delivering faster and better Internet for everyone," Google added.

Google has also urged the Federal Communications Commission to find new ways to promote high-speed Internet access.

Google is looking for communities that want to test high-speed networks and will collect responses until March 26. It will announce which areas have been chosen later this year.

"We welcome responses from local government, as well as members of the public," Google said. If you'd like to respond, visit this page to learn more.
