Google Fiber uses fiber-optic communication to significantly ramp up Internet speed. In fact, it is a whopping 100 times faster than what’s currently available in the marketplace. This technology is being given only to select communities in the United States for testing at the moment. It will make possible many internet applications that require very high bandwidth – a need unmet by current internet service providers. Though this technology may take time to be widely used – it represents a quantum and revolutionary leap in terms of providing Internet bandwidth.
Tangible benefits of this state-of-the-art technology
Higher Internet speeds at an affordable price results in considerable saving of time for the users. Companies using Google Fiber will have an edge over those which don’t. In today’s world of cutthroat competition, this could be the difference between success and failure. This technology will help small businesses compete with the bigger companies. As Google Fiber becomes more popular, competitors will be forced to scale up Internet speeds and cut charges to make their service more affordable and attractive to their customers.
Google’s solid backing
Google has both the desire and financial muscle to make this technology successful and universally acceptable. The education field is expected to boom with the advent of this exciting and game changing technology. Google Fiber will make possible Internet connection speeds of one gigabit per second for both download and upload. It is an astounding 100 times faster compared to the broadband speeds available in America.
Industry sources estimate that Google Fiber will reach 8 million households by 2022. Today, it is installed in Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, KS. It is planned to expand to many other suburbs, such as the city of Austin, TX and Provo, UT.
Google’s Strategy to Expand Google Fiber
Google is tying up with cities that are ready to become partners in introducing Google Fiber and realize associated cost savings. Instead of installing the infrastructure everywhere and then marketing it, Google requires that communities meet a certain interest level before putting up the infrastructure for Google Fiber.
