Google Delays Google Fiber Superfast Broadband Service


Google's plans to build a super high-speed broadband network running at 100 times current speeds have been pushed back for 2011, Googe announced today.

Earlier this year Google had announced an experiment that would help make Internet access better and faster for everyone: to provide a community with ultra high-speed broadband, 100 times faster than what most people have access to today. Google planned to 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. The service would be offered at a 'competitive price' to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.

Google had initially planned to to announce the development of the service to its selected community or communities by the end of this year, but according to Milo Medin, vice president of Access Services at Google, "the level of interest was incredible - nearly 1,100 communities across the country responded to our announcement - and exceeded our expectations. While we're moving ahead full steam on this project, we?re not quite ready to make that announcement."

"We're sorry for this delay, but we want to make sure we get this right. To be clear, we're not re-opening our selection process - we simply need more time to decide than we'd anticipated. Stay tuned for an announcement in early 2011, he said.
