Google developing 10 gigabit Internet


Google is reportedly developing technology that will allow for Internet data speeds of up to 10 gigabits per second, much faster than their current Google Fiber service, which is 1 gigabit per second. According to Patrick Pichette, Chief Financial Officer at Google, this next generation of the Internet is part of Google’s “broader, long-term obsession with speed.”

Pichette stated that faster speeds will increase the use of software as a service, and that this is where the world is going. He also said that it may happen over a decade, but “why wouldn’t we make it available in three years? That’s what we’re working on.”

Google Fiber is currently only available to residents in Kansas City, but the service is also set to be coming to Austin, Texas. When asked if the service would be coming to more cities, Pichette said to “stay tuned.”

    I would be happier if they focused on getting their 1 gigabit service to more areas first.
