    Default Google Fiber reaches 700Mbps on launch day






    Google’s consumer-grade Internet, Google Fiber, has gone live in Kansas City. We knew the service would offer decent Internet speeds at a highly affordable price — 1-gigabit speeds for only $70 per month– but early speed reports from real, live users are more impressive than some people actually expected.
    Michael Demarais, founder of startup
    Threedee, tweeted out a screen cap of a Google Fiber speed test, and the results are almost unbelievable: nearly 700Mbps download speed, and a little over 600Mbps upload speed. For comparison, I pay around $50 per month for Time Warner’s standard 30Mbps download and 1Mbps upload plan.
    Demarais has said that, on an ethernet connection, he’s seen speeds consistently landing in between 600Mbps and 700Mbps, while wireless connections have reached around 200Mbps. He also noted that Google Fiber’s speed is so consistently fast, that wherever he ends up after Kansas City, his internet speed tolerance will be ruined. Demarais lives in an area of Kansas City that is becoming something of a hub for startups due to the availability of Google Fiber’s low-cost, high-speed plan. Hopefully, Google’s service will make its way to other parts of the world soon so we all don’t have to move to Missouri.
    In March 2011, members of Google’s Chrome team participated in a Reddit AMA and
    revealed their in-house Internet speeds:





    Though it was around a year and a half ago, Google’s in-house speeds were significantly slower than Google Fiber’s residential 1-gigabit offering. Whether or not Google has upgraded their in-house speeds since last March, it speaks to the rapidly growing landscape of Internet speeds that a cheap, consumer-grade offering blows an Internet giant’s speeds out of the water less than two years later.

    Lolz @ Sandy's comment!

    Google is suppose to be the new top contender in the fiber optic world, but lets see if they can support the mass users out there like verizon said they are trying to do.
    I am still waiting for Fios in my area from Verizon.. Its been 2 years and counting since I last called Verizon about Fios and they said soon.. and when I last checked online last month its still n/a...

    I am still on cable at but getting about 32mbps down and about 5 up

    Just was reading an article about Google being a suitor for the purchase Dishnetwork. Dishnetwork over the last few years has aquired a massive amount of spectrum. If Google is truely looking into being a nationwide carrier then this spectrum will help it roll out high speed data for mobile devices. It doesnt need to offer voice/calling features for tablets and laptops to be connected to its service. It will be able to dedicate 100% of the spectum on data, something none of the current wireless carriers can do. Combine this with the fiber roll out, it can have millions of subscribers connected and using google services in short order. Then add the sat boxes using Google software and being connected to its fiber or wireless network. Google is building Skynet!

It doesnt need to offer voice/calling features for tablets and laptops to be connected to its service. It will be able to dedicate 100% of the spectum on data, something none of the current wireless carriers can do. Combine this with the fiber roll out, it can have millions of subscribers connected and using google services in short order. Then add the sat boxes using Google software and being connected to its fiber or wireless network. Google is building Skynet!
    Yea, I read a article about this not to long ago.. I forget where I saw it but it was a interesting read..
