Google Ultrafast Broadband May Shake Up Fiber Market


Google is building an experimental fiber network with 1 Gbps fiber-to-the-home connections. Goals: foster the development of next-generation applications, explore new ways of deploying fiber networks, and provide a model for an open-access network governed by network neutrality rules.
