Google released Google fiber project in the year 2012 for the plan of high speed internet all over the world. As part of the plan Google fiber has been expanded the coverage 18 more cities in the US. The 18 cities are located at the 4 metro cities in the USA. Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville and Raleigh-Durham are the 4 metro cities which is being introduced by the Google fiber technology.
Through Google fiber you will be able to access high speed internet at affordable rates. During the launch the general manager of Google fiber project has mentioned that “Era of mbps (Mega Bits per Second) is over. The Internet will be now written in gbps (Giga Bits per Second)”.
The project was launched in 2012 at Kansas City. You can get the Google fiber service for a cost of 80$ per month. If you wish an additional Cable TV service then you have to pay an overall 120$ per month. There is also a slower data plans for Google fiber but you have to pay an advance amount.
Currently Google Fiber is successfully providing the services in Provo, Utah and Austin. Also they are planning to widen the service to 34 more cities in USA within next year. The Google officials did mention that they are no concentrating on widening the service apart they are really thinking on improving the services on available area.
It nearly take a minimum 1 year for the installation process on a single city. So it is a tough job compared to an ordinary broadband service. But still Google’s Aim remains the same “Faster internet all over the globe”. The average internet speed provided by the other network is about 10mbps which is 10 times slower than Google fiber.
A survey conducted by the Google says that 42 percent of total population has voted for the Google fiber technology and 11 percent was voted for other broadband service. The survey was conducted all over USA. Among that 42 percent many of them are business persons. The reason is that they are still unsatisfied with the services provided by other operators.
Hope Google will expand the project all over globe.
