Google Fiber

Google FiberGoogle Fiber is a revolution brought by Google that will make internet broadband speeds up to 100 times faster. The speed will be around 1 GB/s. But it also has a bad news attached to it, Google has started this service only in Kansas City. If you do not live there, then it might take long time to reach you.

How To Get Google Fiber :

Google Fiber is a combined process. You can not have Google Fiber at your own will. You need to convince your neighborhood to get Google Fiber too. Google has set goals for every locality. If the number of connections Google has asked for or the goal that Google has set is met, only then you would have Google Fiber in your locality. So you must ask your neighborhood to get Google Fiber too.
