Google today announced that it was launching the fiber-optic broadband service in the US calling it â€œThe Google Fiberâ€. The service will be offered for trail run to the residents of Stanford, California. Google also said that it signed an agreement with Stanford University which will enable it to build the high speed fiber optic network to the universityâ€™s residential subdivision which will allow about 850 homes housing staff and students to get connected.
Once connected residents are to get a blazing 1Gb per second high speed Internet which is 100 times faster than an average Internet connection. Google said that once the field trial goes well, Google will roll out the service and expand it. Our sources had said that Salt Lake City, Utah was one of the hot spots where Google will be introducing the service. This will let Google target a larger audience in a big city.
