Wow, Google is already rocking the web world with a couple of interesting services launched recently like Google Wave, Google Buzz. And now, Google is planning to build and test its own ULTRA High-Speed Internet broadband networks, and Google’s main goal is to experiment with new ways to help people around and make Internet access better and faster for everyone.
Here are some specific points that they have in mind for now:
- Next-Generation Apps: Google Want to see what developers and users can do with ULTRA high-speed internet, either “Innovative Apps” or “Killer Apps” or something that we can’t imagine.
- New deployment techniques: Testing new ways to build fiber networks, and to help inform and support deployments elsewhere, they’ll share key lessons learned with the world, which another broadband service won’t do.
- Openness and choice: We’ll operate an “open access” network, giving users multiple service providers’ choices. And consistent with our past advocacy, we’ll manage our network in an open, non-discriminatory, and transparent way.
Google wants to give the best and make people think about creative or innovative applications (concept-oriented, etc.) than to think about the services they have in hand now.
This is what they explain about their approach towards Ultra High-Speed 1 Gig experimental fiber network:
Imagine sitting in a rural health clinic, streaming three-dimensional medical imaging over the web, and discussing a unique condition with a New York specialist. Or downloading a high-definition, full-length feature film in less than five minutes. Or collaborating with classmates around the world while watching a live 3-D video of a university lecture. Universal, ultra-high-speed Internet access will make all this and more possible.
For now, Google is planning to build and test 1 gigabit per second ultra High-Speed broadband network (delivering more than 100 times faster than what we have access to today) in a small number of trials in selected locations across the United States with fiber-to-the-home connections. Initially, they plan to offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.

I am sure Google will rule in this Broadband network too – Good Luck Google – you rock!
