    WASHINGTON ? Google plans to build experimental, ultra-fast Internet networks in a handful of communities around the country.

    The search company said Wednesday that its fiber-optic broadband networks will deliver speeds of 1 gigabit per second to as many as 500,000 Americans. Google Inc. says those systems will be more than 100 times faster than the networks that most Americans have access to today.

    In a blog post, the company said the networks will let consumers download a high-definition, full-length feature film in less than five minutes and allow rural health clinics to send 3-D medical images over the Web.

    Google says it will seek input from communities that might be interested in getting one of the testbed networks.

    On the one hand i think this is good for the web development, as other companies need to step up there game also.
    But on the other i'm a bit apprehensive about google actually distributing internet connections.

    I think you misspelled M as G, its a joke.... :D

    No idea when some thing similar will come to INDIA.

    There are optical cables with which we can transfer data in the speed of light. Only problem is that, no optical processor available to process that high speed data.

    That day is not too far, when our hardware changed for optical transfer. :)

    @lonojoe - your right it's a joke.

    First off 1 gigabit per second or even 1 trillion gigabit per second has nothing to do with speed, it's all about capacity - period.

    The speed by which data moves is more or less fixed to the speed of light/electrons through media. For fiber it's about 60% that of the speed of light through fibre optic cables. Electrons travel through media at something like 1 inch an hour, but the electron wake is closer to that of light through fibre.

    Then you have the latency, the delays added by each component in a network (processing the data to determine where it needs to go). Those are the things that determine speed, everything else is bull.

    There is a reason why it's called bandwidth - with width being the operative word.

    Also when it comes to home users you have the contention ratio - how many people share the same uplink connection as you do. Most broadband providers which service the home consumer market pack 50 people per uplink. That doesn't take into account the other uplinks for the other broadband users which all share the fibres in and out of the exchange.

    You could potentially have 50,000 homes sharing a couple of 1gbps links at each exchange.

    i'd be surprised if this ever comes. 1gb-ps is super fast... and useless... unless you are dealing with someone on the same speed. which is not gonna happen... :)

    Just another attempt by Google to take over the world and control your life. Seems to be working to me.

    Much too fast and probably too expensive for most standard and even more advanced internet users. Kinda pointless for google to distribute this to the standard users instead of corps

    TiSP is an April fools joke from a couple of years ago. Take a look at:

    Google was in the wireless business a few years back, from what I heard it got a little too complicated so they sold out to the biggest player in town.

    If they couldn't run a wireless service, they sure as hell won't be doing the 1 gbps to the home business for long. As they will encounter the same problems with right of way access, just like their little wireless side business they gave up on.

    add to that the fact that corporations are now treated like individuals and can legally throw any amount of money towards politics and you have one bad ass formula for world domination.
