Google has revealed plans to brings its super-fast broadband project ‘Google Fiber’ to the city of Provo, Utah, by acquiring the city’s existing fibre network for a nominal fee of $1.
US operator AT&T is going head to head with Google as it announced that it will roll out a fibre network in Austin, Texas promising speeds of up to 1Gbps. The city is also the next urban metropolitan area in line for Google’s Fiber treatment, following the web firm’s high speed fibre deployment in Kansas.
In a move that appears to fly in the face of its support for net neutrality, Google this week filed a document with US regulator the FCC stating that customers of its fibre to the home network were limited in what kind of devices or applications they could attach to those connections. But is the situation as clear cut as it seems?
Google has confirmed that residents of the city of Austin, Texas will be next in line to benefit from its Google Fiber project, which delivers super-fast broadband speeds over a dedicated fibre-to-the-home network.
US internet services giant Google has started taking orders for its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) service ‘Google Fiber’ in Kansas City, Missouri, with launch set for this spring.
US online video service Netflix has released the latest data for broadband connections in the US which carry its streams, and they make some interesting reading, including the revelation that Google Fiber is now the most consistently fast ISP in the country.
Interest in Google’s fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) project in Kansas City is now running high enough for at least 180 of the city’s 202 neighbourhoods to qualify for deployment of the network.
Less than a week after inaugurating its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network in Kansas City, Google has confirmed that it is now preparing a second pre-registration phase for homes in North and South Kansas City (Missouri).
As the long-awaited fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network that Google has busily been building in Kansas City nears completion, rumours have surfaced that the tech giant may be planning to build similar networks in other locations across the US.
