Google Fiber Has Real World Speeds of 700 Mbps

Google Fiber is being installed all over Kansas City right now and people are so happy about the blazing fast speed that they've posted pictures of their speed tests. It's ridiculous. People with Google Fiber can expect 700 Mbps down on ethernet and about 200 Mbps down on Wi-Fi. That's ISP heaven on Earth.

Mike Demarais, founder of Threedee, told Ars Technica:

"We just got it today and I've been stuck in front of my laptop for the last few hours... It's unbelievable. I'm probably not going to leave the house."

We wouldn't either. And for the first thing Demarais did when Google Fiber was up and running at his home? He BitTorrented Ubuntu. It took him two minutes. Bless his heart and bless Google Fiber. [Ars Technica]
