Google is bringing faster internet access to your business. Starting in Austin, Kansas City and Provo.
Google Fiber’s web site claims that Google’s speeds will be up to 100 times faster than the average broadband speed your used to.
Google popularized online video (thanks Youtube), Google brought us better email (thanks Gmail), Google brought us better search (thanks Google), Google brought us DIY online advertising (thanks Google Adwords). It’s going to make the availability of faster broadband a reality for us all.
Why is Google launching Google broadband?
The faster broadband becomes, the more readily available and more used, content services will be. The more content there is online, the more advertising Google (and others) can make money from.
Of course we all benefit from faster broadband with better communication overall including boost of online storage, boost of WiFi availability and other benefits.
The second benefit of Google stepping into this market is that it will provoke existing and competing broadband providers to offer high speed Internet to its customers.
Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Verizon and other carriers will BOOST the speeds and availability of their offerings.
