Expanded Google Fiber to Bring 10 Gigabit Internet in Coming Years

Google is on a mission to update the web’s wiring—and they’re not talking a decade or more to do it. The firm’s CFO, Patrick Pichette, recently said his firm is working to boost internet speeds a thousand fold in the next three years. “That’s where the world is going. It’s going to happen.” The project is called Google Fiber and, though it’s in just three cities so far, an additional 34 cities in nine metro areas may be approved for Fiber by yearend.

Why Wait For Google Fiber? UK Farmers Want Faster Internet, Build Their Own

Last November, neighborhoods in Kansas City became the first to enjoy the 1Gbps Internet speed made possible through Google Fiber. As Google considers the possibility of bringing Fiber to other communities (some signs points to Canada as a possible spot), a group of remote farmers in the UK with sluggish Internet speeds decided they didn’t want to wait on their ISPs, the government, or even Google to deliver an upgrade to their broadband speeds. They opted to build an ultrafast fiberoptic network themselves.
