If you live in an area where you can enjoy the massive levels of Internet connectivity speed that is Google Fiber, then you can rejoice even further as that speed is being boosted further to 1,000 Mbps. The service’s website makes it plenty clear that they are now offering faster download speeds. If you don’t quite like the sound of 1,000 Mbps, then does 1 Gbps sound better?
Google Fiber Provides Even Faster Speeds
These new Internet speeds being offered by Google Fiber is a cause for much celebration, well, for those who can experience it anyway. This service brought by the search engine giant lets users download, stream, and practically do anything with regards to being online in an insanely faster manner. The 1,000 Mbps speed is already faster than most other smaller companies, and Google is even looking at increasing that speed even further (as if 1 Gbps is not enough). There are already a few companies seen that can give high-speed Internet connection speeds of up to 10 Gbps, but this doesn’t mean that Google is about to take this lying down.
There are even reports that Internet speeds by Google Fiber is aiming for 1 Terabyte per second (Tbps). This is bound to scare some of its smaller competitors in this category. To further cement this claim, the company has just recently posted a job ad for a phototronics engineer. They are looking for one to take the Internet speeds faster than 1 Gigabyte per second. They are also looking to put mobile Internet speeds up to par with their regular Internet connection offerings.
So how fast is 1 Gbps? You can download an entire HD movie in as little as 10 seconds, or download an entire music album near-instantly as soon as you click on the “Download” link. The reports that the company is looking to increase their speeds to 1 Tbps are but mere speculations at the time of writing and there is no official word from the company regarding this matter. Therefore, should you hear or read any rumor regarding the increase in speed to 1 Tbps from different sources, please take them as a grain of salt and wait for the official announcement.
Even though Google Fiber is looking to increase their Internet connectivity speeds even further, there are some areas that might prove difficult to place this type of service, more specifically that of the city of Louisville, KY. This is because AT&T has filed said lawsuit against the city dictating on how telecommunications company is able to use their poles and authorizing others on using them.
