Can you imagine yourself, searching the web for information using Google search and connected to the Internet through a Google run ISP, while at the same time receiving text messages and voice calls on a Google phone? In short, can you imagine yourself at some point in the future, solely depending on Google for Â all you communication needs? Sounds creepy or wonderful?
Well, believe it or not, soon we might all be connecting to the Internet at a speed faster than what we have right now, specifically at 1 gigabyte per second speed. That is if Google succeeds with its planned experiment that will test a better and faster ultra-high speed broadband Internet access. This will be carried out through fiber-to-home connections.
Google is planning to roll this out to around 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 households in the United States. Â And the plan is to offer the Internet service at a very competitive price.
Specifically, what Google wants to achieve from this experiment is to find out what can be done with a faster Internet connection specifically by developers, share key lessons on what they are going to learn about building fiber networks and manage a network built on an open policy.
Right now, Google is currently asking some U.S. municipalities for information through a Request for Information (RFI) to determine where they can build the Google fiber-to-home networks.
