Google's always tiptoed around directly providing internet access to consumers with things like free airport WiFi ands the free WiFi network it runs in Mountain View, but today the company announced that it's getting in the game for real with the launch of a fiber-based ISP service that'll offer 1Gbps speeds at "competitive prices" to select markets. The idea is to provide next-gen access to between 50,000 and 500,000 people and basically see what happens -- and, as you'd expect, the new network will be a poster child for Google's pro-net-neutrality efforts. Sounds good to us, but we've all got a ways to go before Eric Schmidt comes over with the lightpipe -- Google's just now asking for "interested communities" to apply, and launch markets will be announced later this year. Video after the break.

IT'S MOST LIKELY A CONSPIRACY. AND WILL RESULT IN US ENDING UP IN FEMA CAMPS

 

1gbs downloading rate would be fuckin phenomenal. Fuckass New york state does not support a Fios network but Verizon does offer one. How backwards is that?

if it's cheaper and faster, then that's what's up. their commitment to net neutrality is a plus too.

 

exactly. With the other major ISP's not nearly as committed to keeping the net open and free, I think this is awesome. I think the stuff they could do with a hyper-fast connection will be crazy.

In related news Obama announced that he would be selling the USA to Google for a whopping 11.4 trillion dollars, with the majority of the money going to China. When Google's CEO Eric Schmit was asked what he would do with Iraq and Afghanistan he replied, "Outsourcing, duh."

I'm all cool with Google taking over. They've done a lot of great things. Pushed the envelope as far as risk & innovation. Better than Microsoft taking over (which they had done for a while).

I'd be beyond psyched if there was a GOOD internet service that didn't try to fuck you over on paying for a phone line or cable or hit you with a bunch of fucking charges for dumb bullshit. I currently don't pay for internet or cable, but i'd definitely be willing to shell out a reasonable amount for faster service and keep my current cable situation.

 

I approve of google.

I like Cox (no homo) for my cable and internet needs, but I bet Google would also do it proper

 

I've heard good things about Verizon Fios, BUT I know from first hand experience trying to set up a phone line through them for my house arrest that their customer service is fucking HORRIBLE
