Google Fiber – Full Speed Ahead

Brace yourselves, Fiber is coming. Fast. Google Fiber is all about the speed and this speed is providing its users numerous benefits. No matter if you are running a big company, a small startup, or you are just are regular, everyday normal guy, Google Fiber is the future. And I know, you are probably thinking – ok, but give me some real numbers and more tangible info. Well, you better buckle up for we are getting there, full speed ahead.

Google Fiber provides its users with 1000 Mbps download and upload speeds, which makes its Internet connection about 100 times faster than the connection the bulk of the globe is currently using. Pretty awesome, isn’t it? This is exactly why we decided to delve a little bit deeper into some of the most useful benefits Google Fiber is bringing to the table.

Say Bye-Bye to Buffering

With Fiber, word buffering might just become archaic pretty soon. One of the major pros of its services is that you will be able to watch videos on YouTube, Vimeo or any other similar platforms, with staggering speeds and in high quality, without those annoying delays caused by slow connection. Imagine an online world without buffering or settling for low-quality options while watching your favorite channels. Well, that is exactly what Fiber has in store for us. Recent tests done in Kansas show that using this Google’s uber-fast Internet connection enables users to run numerous 4K YouTube videos simultaneously without any buffering problems. They were also able to download full-length HD movie files in a matter of seconds.

Doesn’t cost a Fortune

Although many of you might think – Ok, but the subscription to Google Fiber probably costs an arm and a leg – but you would be wrong. The service is actually quite affordable. Google currently offers a basic Internet package Gigabit Internet for only $70 per month, and a combined package Gigabit + TV for $130 a month. Bear in mind that both of these packages have a construction fee of $300, but if you consider the fact that certain companies charge almost the same price for Internet services with speeds of only 15 Mbps, you pretty much get the big picture here.

Good for Business

While we are talking about the big picture we need to mention that Google Fiber’s services will definitely improve many aspects of both online and regular entrepreneur-ing. Businesses in areas with Google’s Internet service are definitely in for a treat, while there is also a possibility of bigger companies wanting to move to cities equipped with Google Fiber. There are already reports saying that local communities with these services are experiencing benefits from “fiber tourists” clustering there to check out what that fuss is all about.

These are just some of the many advantages Fiber optic Internet services can provide to its users. The EU, South Korea and Japan are already using their optical fiber networks to bring their educational system and communication sectors to another level. This is why the rest of the globe will need to keep up in order for their infrastructure to stay in shape. And how does one stay in good shape? They eat a lot of Fiber. Google Fiber.

    Trying to work out what the point of this article is. There’s been no announcement for Google Fibre in Australia and it has been available for a while in the US, so what exactly do you mean when you say “Fibre is coming”.?
