Fiber network from Google is back on track, reported The Wall Street Journal, earlier this day. 18 new US cities across four metro areas will embrace the 1-gigabit per second power. The lucky ones are people from the Atlanta; Charlotte, N.C.; Raleigh-Durham, N.C.; and Nashville, Tenn., regions. Also, the company wants to bring the Google Fiber in areas like Phoenix; Portland, Ore.; Salt Lake City; San Antonio; and San Jose, Calif.
Google is currently going through significant transformations that are designed to fulfill new desires and needs of its users. The largest information tool in the world has high ambitions and tenacious hopes. The purpose of this gigantic company is to increase the telecommunication possibilities and to boost the wireless industry that goes around the whole planet. As a result, Sprint and T-Mobile, which are important wireless carriers, are having various encounters with the Google staff, in order to sell and administrate together mobile plans. The experiments with satellites that Google has sponsored are also meant to investigate what are the best possibilities for making new connections and how it is best to do it for all its users.
At present, Google Fiber is available in Kansas City; Austin, Texas; and Provo, Utah. And price for the service is $80 per month. As far as the speed is concerned, Google promises and also provides with a speed that is ten times faster than any usual Internet connection. The method used by Google to select candidate cities is studying the interest that has been shown in that certain area for high-speed network. In other words, if Google detected a need of a group of people, the effort of making it possible seemed effortless. The infrastructure needed in such a case takes about a year to be built from scratch, for one whole neighborhood.
For the next future, Google wants to work together with the people from the cities it picked for this project, in order to build a map of where it can assemble the thousands of miles of fiber that are recommended for such a large deal.
Brokerage firm Sanford C. Bernstein analyst Carlos Kirjner said in November that the cost for such a business could reach $3 billion.
“We believe the expansion is a consequence of Google Fiber’s success in Kansas City and Provo, and in the early days in Austin, and reflects Google’s view that it may be able to scale Fiber to build a profitable business.”
