Google Says Fibre Is 100 times Faster Than Broadband


Google unveiled its Google Fiber broadband Internet service in Kansas City, Missouri, on Thursday, promising access speeds more than 100 times faster than today's average broadband.

Kansas Citians will choose where Google Fibre install and when. Google said it divided Kansas City into small communities called "fiberhoods." To get service, each fiberhood needs a critical mass of their residents to pre-register. The fiberhoods with the highest pre-registration percentage will get Google Fiber first. Residents who pre-registrer should pay a $10 deposit. Once the pre-registration period is over, residents of the qualified fiberhoods will be able to choose between three different packages (including TV). The first homes will get service shortly after the rally ends, and all qualifying neighborhoods will receive service before the end of 2013.

The new Google Fiber TV service will be priced at $120 a month for a package of major broadcast networks, 1 gigabyte per second Internet speeds and 1 terabyte of cloud storage.

For $70 a month the service will not include the traditional TV channels.

The new advanced service will offer features such as the ability to record eight TV shows at a time and store up to 500 hours of high definition programming. The user can use a tablet or smart phone as a voice-activated remote control if the user wants. Google is offering its Nexus 7 tablet with the Google TV app to early users of the service.

Google Fiber TV will allow users to search live channels, Netflix, YouTube, recorded shows and tens of thousands of hours of on-demand programming.

The download speeds would be around 1 gigabyte a second, according to Google.

While high speed technology exists, the average Internet speed in the U.S. is still only 5.8 megabits per second (Mbps) - slightly faster than the maximum speed available 16 years ago when residential broadband was first introduced.
