Google Fiber is impressive, says analysts, but when will it launch for the rest of us?

by: J. Angelo RacomaNovember 24, 2012
You might have heard of Google's latest foray into the Internet and entertainment industries. Google wants its presence to become even more pervasive in your home. You already use Google Search, an Android device, Gmail and all kinds of services. But current broadband connections are not enough for Google. With Google Fiber, the company wants you to run these services on their own pipes.

by: Bogdan PetrovanNovember 22, 2012
Up until now, Google’s TV service was a bit of a mystery, but a new video (well, a collection of stills) sheds some light on Google’s take on a smart TV service.

Google and Dish ponder new wireless service

by: Simon HillNovember 16, 2012
How do you like the idea of getting your Internet and cellular wireless service from Google? The search engine giant is apparently looking to branch out yet again and talks have been held with satellite TV provider Dish Network. It’s in the very early stages right now, but it’s thought Dish is looking for a partner to build a U.S. wireless network with and Google might be a good fit.

Google Fiber in-home set up and equipment revealed

There were a lot of whispers surrounding Google Fiber, which promised to provide ultra-fast broadband speeds at a relatively low cost. Not many expected such a service to be available so soon, so you can imagine our surprise and excitement when Google announced the launch of Google Fiber a few days back! Granted, it will start only in Kansas City for now (both Missouri and Kansas) and Google has made a competition out of who will be lucky enough to receive the service first. In the eventuality of a success of this venture (who doesn’t want 1Gbps speeds?), Google will follow up with a more extensive rollout, hopefully very [...]

Google Fiber rocks the Kansas City broadband market

by: nathanJuly 31, 2012

A few days ago we reported on Google Fiber Gigabit Internet and it’s expected value on the market. But we never expected anything quite like this: Kansas City, MO is now hovering at the 25th percentage mark for having all Google thresholds met. If you’ll recall, Google is requesting that fiberhoods meet certain quota before they rollout their network in a specific area. It’s being reported that eligible fiberhoods are surpassing demand and the numbers just keep rising.

Keep in mind, this statistic is only for the Missouri side where apparently people can buy into [...]

Google may deliver broadband for cheap to your area

by: nathanJuly 28, 2012


On the heels of the successful release of the much hailed Nexus 7, comes exciting news from Google: cheaper gigabit broadband coupled with TV. This may not seem like much, but to be honest, in the monopolized realm of US ISP’s, it’s big news. Google just launched its first rollout in the Midwest region and is using an old marketing trick of growing their customer base.

Remember the old Gmail and Google Wave invite?  They plan to use the same idea for this new service in order for it to “go viral”. Google is asking potential customers to tell their neighborhood (Google calls it a fiberhood) so as to minimize visits to your fiberhood [...]

Google Fiber TV intends to shake up the competition

by: nathanJuly 28, 2012

In a future article, we will go over the inherent beauty of the Google Fiber Internet plan and its forecasted undermining of the monolithic structure that is US ISP’s. In this edition, we will briefly cover one of the services the plan serves to meet, and its a large segment of the market: HDTV.

Broadband TV is not a new concept, with HDTV, DVR, and the now defunct TiVO, being used for the 1st generation of Internet based streaming video. Households now have the option to watch and record, just about anything they can lay their eyes on. Google intends to meet this market heads on and give people a deal they cannot refuse. With a seemingly no-brainer to have [...]

Google Fiber plans: 1 Gbps for $70, 5 Mbps Internet for free, and more

by: LucianJuly 27, 2012

One of the most awaited projects from Google in the past few years, Google Fiber, has finally been launched.

The average American consumer should be very excited about this project, because, even if Google doesn’t intend to compete with other ISPs on a national level, the service should still push ISPs to try to match Google’s speed and pricing. Seeing how US has one of the slowest and most expensive internet industry in the world, this move is a very welcome one, indeed.

But why is this important to Google? Google is at a point (and has been for a while) where it can only grow by expanding “the Internet”. They grow by helping people [...]
