Google is making their next move into Broadband market. Google plans to build a fibre optic broadband network that will connect people to Internet at speeds 100 times faster than most existing broadband connections in the US.
They said that Google plans to build and test the network in trial communities around the country starting later this year and that the tests could encompass as many as 500,000 people. They cited 3-dimensional medical imaging and quick, high-definition film downloads among the applications of such high-speed internet access.
“We’ll deliver internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fibre-to-the-home connections,” the post said. “We plan to offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.”
Google will make it possible ASAP. There are many competitors for Google now. But still they are the best in developing killer web apps and in providing web services. In the last year it made a splash in the mobile phone market with its Android operating system and lastweek they have announced a social networking
feature aimed at taking on Facebook and Twitter.
If they implement it means, in future we dont need heavy systems. We can have everything as a thin client. All the process of an operating system can be done as “SaaS” or as a “On Demand Service” using Cloud Computing. We will expect those days as soon as possible.
