Google has announced it's intent to build a number of high speed networks in the United States. And by high speed, they mean 100 times faster than what is available today.
Google's vision is to have a nation-wide network of one gigabit fiber to the home connections with a choice of service providers. Google says it's "goal is to experiment with new ways to help make Internet access better, and faster for everyone."
If it creates competition for Comcast and to a lesser extent Verizon, I'm all for it.
