If only it were that easy. I have a gigabit router and switch, plus 450FT of Cat5e, however
that would still require me to splice fiber to a fiber modem (which means i'd have to pay NOANET to turn on the fiber line id use) and do that inside the nearest access hole, which is about 1250ft from my house (im actually right in between two of them, theyve got one every 2500ft along the line)
If i was gonna do that, i might as well wire up the whole dang neighborhood. who's going to pay for that??

Isn't really any in Seattle either tongue.gif. At least not where I've been or know people. Comcast goes up to 100mbit if you're in a good spot... although it is pricey.

Verizon FiOS is in the Seattle area.

It does get cheaper but, the cost to lay said line does increase, substantially...So while the cost goes down to the consumer, the hardware involved increases, exponentially.
Which you actually say so, I'm just reiterating your point.

Yes. In a perfect world we would all wake up tomorrow and magically everything was in place to do this! Unfortunately this world isn't perfect, and the cost to get to the point I described is in the Trillions....somewhere on this forum is some basic math on the subject.

150FT of Cat5 could do GB Ethernet, as long as there aren't other lines and signals interfering with it. I actually made a 50ft stretch of Cat5e that did GB no problem.

They're probably just gonna go from one podunk town to another every 4 years or so. I'm not even gonna get exited.

That's the way I see it for now. It's awesome that Google is entertaining the idea of becoming an ISP, but the cost of covering the nation in fiber optic will be astronomical. So either, A: they can get a huge group of investors, or B: they will need massive subsidies from the government to convert our entire country to fiber optic.

I'm okay with plan B. Subsidizing improvements in infrastructure improve the country as a whole, while other subsidies may only target specific groups. IMO, our country doesn't need 1Gb/s to each doorstep, but anything less than 10Mb/s in this day and age is simply too slow for a family of 4 consuming large amounts of media (YouTube, Netflix, etc...). Current ISPs have the majority of markets monopolized, and some healthy competition would help us all.

Whoever wrote this is an idiot, delegate rollouts by their states, then have each state rollout in their largest populated cities and then work your way down. By the time you have spent the first 20 billion, you will already have the largest most productive system to fund the rest of the rollout. But of course GOOGLE already knows this, since that was why they did their rollout in a major city and is using that to fund and gain attention to the rest of their rollouts.

I wonder if they will ever expand into Canada. That would be very nice.

Considering such low population densities in most of the US, $140 billion sounds cheap.
