I'm Gonna Download The Entire Internet!: Google To Test Gigabit Fiber Optic Internet Service In The United States

February 10, 2010

If there's one thing that sucks about my life it's everything. And if there's another it's slow internet service. I can't stand it. It drives me crazy. Crazier than the kids next door waking me up at 7 playing drums on the connecting wall of our apartments. Which, FOR THE LOVE OF GOD STOP I WILL BREAK YOUR ALL YOUR TOYS.

Google is planning to launch an experiment that we hope will make Internet access better and faster for everyone. We plan to test ultra-high speed broadband networks in one or more trial locations across the country. Our networks will deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today, over 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections. We'll offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.

From now until March 26th, we're asking interested municipalities to provide us with information about their communities through a Request for information (RFI), which we'll use to determine where to build our network.

Listen, Google, you know I'm a straight shooter, right? You should roll this out in my city. And, if you decide not to, let me go ahead and save you the trouble of testing -- everybody's gonna love it.
