The Internet increasingly fast and performant. This is the goal of Google, which in the coming months will launch officially its Google Fiber project, which aims to create in America a high-speed Internet network, up to a maximum of 1 Gb per second (Gigabit, not to be confused with GB — Gigabyte). By the autumn the American giant will enter the market for providers of Internet access.
Google Fiber project includes numerous services, including the Google Fiber TV, streaming television that take advantage of this tremendous speed to convey high definition content to (for now) the lucky few who in America can take advantage of this service. Fiber Optics is a technology that still has spread with due thoroughness, braking in many ways by the high costs for the installation of infrastructures. According to the Mountain View, however, this network should not only cover a TV-like service, but evolve and go to provide other services to businesses, schools, libraries, hospitals and Government agencies. You should thus create a full-fledged digital highway that would go beyond the limits of the current infrastructure present in the United States. Ideally would be eliminated slowdowns and instability.
This new project should now be available from next autumn in two cities, both with the same name: Kansas City, who as you may already know you are in the same State of which bears the name, while the other was founded in Missouri. In order to connect these two cities was necessary to collect an impressive number of subscription requests, involving at least between 40 and 80 requests for each individual neighborhood. A real unity of purpose, that should go to create a system that can also go along with fiber-optic systems that we have managed to create in Italy, where our network equipped with this technology won several other States on time.
In the near future could also be linked and other cities if the initial experiment will work, then this technology might be destined to be exported abroad. It will, however, find a more simple and immediate infrastructure installation, since even the spread in our country has been repeatedly slowed by high costs and complex logistics. We’ll see what will happen.
