Google has revealed its intent to enter into the broadband market in the United States, which is falling behind much of the world in speed and pricing. The fiber-optic network from Google has a goal of 1Gbps, more speed than any residential user could need. The best news from the announcement is that Google plans to offer this service at prices comparable to much slower services currently offered. Initial plans are to offer the service to roughly 500,00 homes across the United States. Google hopes that by doing this it can further expand its offering of apps that may be more bandwidth intensive.

Aren't they investing in Solar and wind power, too. Google is becoming enormous.

I can't wait to see what Google has planned. I'm personally tired of slow speeds for high prices in the United States, but that's just me.
