Google Fiber In Kansas City Brings Breathtaking Browsing Speed [Video]

After waiting over two years, Google finally announced the availability of its ultra-high speed internet service Google Fiber for people residing in Kansas City, from coming September. The speed it offers is 1GBps, which is 100x of what the Americans are currently experiencing. Google Fiber is made up of thin optical fiber lines that span from a user's home to the data center, which is then linked to the national internet backbone. Google states that this direct connection from user's home to the backbone is the main reason of getting such high internet speeds.


This could help in bettering internet accessibility and also the speed could steer towards more tech-innovations, that could prepare a stage for the next generation internet browsing. The infrastructure and all the groundwork have been all laid, and home-installation shall begin after the pre-registration till 9th of September. Priced at $70, we believe it's a pretty good catch. Google also hinted pairing this net connection with the Google Fiber TV, which will have thousands of TV shows on demand.
