Google ISP ?

by Froggy 39 Comments 13 Votes 1560 Views 14/02/2010 Back to News
Google Has Announced that it plans a trial of a "fiber to the home" (thats fiber optical cables run from the exchange to a house for those that dont know) network to 50,000 potentaly 500,000 people. This network could potentaly provide speeds of up to 1 gigabit per seconed.

If the trial succeds google will know just about everything people do on the web, is it safe for one company to have such power ?

*EDIT: thanks to chuz
my understanding is the trial is only avalible in north america


Here is a video intro to the network form google and a link to googles site.

Heh, I think I've pretty much signed away my privacy by replacing my iPhone 3G with a Nexus One

I really don't care if Google knows what I'm looking at online.
Oh ... and I'm sure Google already knows what I'm up to, thanks to Google Buzz xD
Nothing is sacred. Google knows everything.
haha step 4 in world domination.
lol
Haha they won't go into your private business only moniter it
Google=NWO?

But do you watch it in a studio with news cameras behind you while a colleague is reporting the business news live?? Didn't think so, you're not hardcore.
google is the new mmicrosoft
apple is on the verge of being sidelined again...thats why steve jobs is pissed.
1 GB per second internet!

Its gigabit, not gigabyte

1 gigabit = 125 megabits
1 megabit = 125 kilobytes
Morgan, I think you meant 1 Gigabit = 125 Megabytes.
1 Gigabit would equal to 1,000 Megabits xD
wouldnt mind if the google employees wanna share my online porn experience with me....hell...thats 1Gbps connection ffs :|
Compared to 13Mbps I get now :|

..... GEEZ :|

But then again...whats the use of this bandwidth when they are on a mission to shut down most of the *cough* *cough* websites :|
This is only in the US for now.

It's a good thing, I'm pretty sure Japan has 1GBps for most of their homes in the city.

Wouldn't be too worried about privacy, ISP's have to agree to a strict code of conduct.
Anyone heard of the consiracy theory that Google is trying to essentially create artificial intelligence by networking the world so close that with all the computers on the internet providing the processing power this can be acheived? kind of like how the brain is comprised of millions of cells working together etc. This could lend a little evidence to that theory of increasing badwidth. they can already catalaogue just about anything anyones interested in...
Be aware..it will be soon!!!!
googles name for this project is skynet? ;|

Oh yes. Sorry my bad
If any Australian Politition has to decide on this,
it just wont happen till they've spent another 20 Billion and waited Several Years, and Resolved NOTHING !
awesome! if it's faster and cheaper i'd buy it.
1 GB/ second... yes plz
I dont understand why google hasnt brought out their own OS for computers or their own computers. Its strange if you ask me

Good point but i still think that it would be more beneficial for them. There way of thinking is different to mine and they are more experienced so they are probably right. And its Google, Google is always right

they are i think its getting released this year. the chrome browser is based on it
If its faster then why not, Australia has like the worst internet speeds......
It makes everything lag...

They have, It's called Google chrome OS www.youtube.com/ But it's only available as a Linux dual boot at the moment.

Because Google decides who does the voting.

lol
and how much bigger is a gigabyte than a gigabit?

dagamster said: Yay!! less privacy!!!


no matter what happens, as long as the internet is still around, there will never be any privacy.
Google = another name for Skynet..
