Google Broadband 1 Gbps Fiber Network - 04-16-2010, 11:45 AM

Google is planning to enter the U.S. market of broadband, a super-fast broadband network over optical fiber to offer data transfer rates via the Internet to 1 Gigabit per second (1 Gbps) or up to 100 times faster than currently available. The implementation will take place in the U.S., where Google has opened the nominations to the various affected areas to try first for this new network.

The intention is to bring a modern service and large bandwidth upto 1 Gbps to users at an affordable price. Bandwidth capacity has in fact an order of magnitude of 100 times that normally available to U.S. users today. Initially it will be an experiment, which will involved up to 500,000 users.

The idea is to create an open access network, ie a network where users can choose the provider they choose. Providers will be granted access to the initiative, in a transparent manner.
