Have you recently had problems with your internet connection? Does it happen often? Regardless of your answer, Google knows that connection problems can truly be a headache, so it suggests a solution: faster internet. Don’t you want to know more about it?
Google has been testing ways of wiring homes and companies’ offices through a wireless connection, providing them with faster internet. Google Fiber intends to bring the new technology in 12 regions across the United States, including both cities and rural areas. Now the company only waits for the approval of the FCC (Federal Communication Commission) in order to proceed with the plan.
Google promises people that the new project can provide internet speed of 1 GB per second directly to their homes. The endeavor of the engineers is to come up with more affordable costs for high-quality technology and faster internet.
Google Fiber is an Internet service that provides you with faster internet than the average internet speed in America. One of the many advantages is that you can download and upload large files in only seconds.
Google declared for Business Insider:
“We are working to test the viability of a wireless network that relies on newly available spectrum. The project is in early stages today, but we hope this technology can one day help deliver more abundant Internet access to consumers.”
If you wonder what the places where Google chose as targets are, it is still the company the one that clarifies the matter, through the following declaration:
“Google plans to deploy initially in Atwater, California, Mountain View, California, Palo Alto, California, San Bruno, California, San Francisco, California, San Jose, California, Boulder, Colorado, Kansas City, Kansas, Omaha, Nebraska, Raleigh, North Carolina, Provo, Utah, and Reston, Virginia.”
Google Fiber has recently acquired Webpass, a company which also deals with internet services at high speed. Webpass was already in charge of important urban parts in the U.S., such as San Francisco, but they didn’t work with a wireless connection. Now, combining their forces, the two companies hope to be able to provide residents in the United States with faster internet at good prices, so that both parts should be happy about the deal.
The faster, wireless internet spread across the United States is an older project of Google, which, now, finally, seems to get on the right track and give results. You should stay updated in case your city is on the list.
