Google Fiber was announced back in 2010 and became suddenly popular. The US specific internet service, provides high speed at affordable rates, was better than the rest of the competition. It shows that might be that was a bit too progressive for Google.
From last several years, Google worked with different communities to construct fiber optic infrastructures which convey up to 1000 Mbps of speed. It would let you download entire movies in seconds and stream videos instantly.
Although, It seems that Google has come to know that fiber networks are expensive and time taking. The Google believes that there is only one solutions left that is to go for wireless.
Craig Barratt, the senior vice president at Alphabet (oversees Google Fiber and other projects) spoke in an interview about the plans.
But he didn’t reveal a time period, he did say that they want to supply wireless Internet connections to homes where it wouldn’t make sense to build fiber. One of the main edge of wireless internet connection is that it allows us to connect houses where it is difficult and expensive to build fiber optic.
“We hope this technology can one day help deliver more abundant internet access” – Eric Schmidt, CEO Alphabet
Google testing its wireless technology in Kansas City, which is the first city where Google Fiber was introduced.
Craig Barratt highlight that the plans are fixed around wireless internet connection and not mobile. The official launch will be much larger than current wired network because right now, Google Fiber is only in six cities.
By shifting to wireless, Google Fiber plans to speed up official launch of internet services and also wants to save money.
Google Fiber is currently working for USA wireless connectivity, it might be opened for other markets as well. Google Fiber is most popular broadband provider in the USA, where it’s available.
Proven by Google Fiber, any type of wire based communication technology requires a lot of money, time, effort and infrastructure.So if these wireless connectivity attempts are successful, then wireless connection might be a new way of supplying internet access to all locations. Wireless connection is only feasible way of keeping the costs lower and cover more areas.
