Google finally announced the launch of a testing try out process of their new super high-speed internet service through a 1 gigabyte per second fibre optic connection in Kansas City. Here, residents will be able to use the service before anyone else in the world and give feedback if it certainly is worth all the hype.
Around 1100 towns and cities had applied to be connected to the Google Fibre Project when it was initially announced in 2010, but Kansas City seems to have won the race. Kevin Lo, the Google Access Manager said, “New high-speed infrastructure will ultimately be carrying Kansas Citians’ data at speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have today.”
How Google will run the services?
Ever since the recent announcement, Google’s representatives have been visiting door-to-door to let the residents know how the service will run on the gadgets and how the connection will be installed. In August, Google set up an individual web site where interested citizens could register for the connection. Moreover, nearly 90% of eligible neighbourhood had then signed up within six weeks, for a monthly price of $70. The service also includes one Terabyte of data storage as well as a network box.
