Default Google will build 1Gbps fiber networks to US homes

From http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/02...r_to_the_home/

Quote:
After building its own browser, its own operating system, its own mobile OS, its own smartphone, its own DNS service, and what amounts to its own private internet, Google is now building its own ultra-high-speed fiber networks to American homes.

With a blog post Wednesday morning, the search giant cum world power announced it will build and test one-gigabit-per-second fiber connections to at least 50,000 homes in various locations across the US. The trial could expand to as many as 500,000 homes, according to the post.

A 1Gbps connection is about 100 times as fast as the fastest speeds available to most American broadband users today.

Default It will be cool!

If it will be lan based internet access , it will be cool.
Especially if lan-based internet access comes with network autoconfiguration - coz its very simple to use with livecds and linux setups.You just plug cable and internet starts automatically and ofcourse you can change its settings.
Much than setting up manually and spending hours for making internet work from linux.

If you mean Ethernet connectivity and autoconfiguration through DHCP, that's practically how every (..non DSL) provider does things eurovive.
