High-speed internet is improving across the US, but not everyone is experiencing the same level of improvement. Google wants to help solve that problem, albeit in a highly limited fashion.
Just a day after AT&T announced that it’s bringing gigabit fiber internet to the L.A. metro area, Google has announced that it’s exploring L.A. and Chicago as the next possible locations for the expansion of its Fiber network.
AT&T has been offering gigabit-speed fiber internet since 2013, but unless you got very lucky with the internet genie, you probably haven’t been in the service area. Starting today, 38 cities will have the chance to download their Steam games really quite fast.
“Today, high speed broadband is not a luxury, it’s a necessity,” President Obama said earlier this year. Yet home internet access is still an extravagance out of reach for many Americans. Today, the White House announced a program designed to change that.
Today, Google announced its very own wireless network. Just $20 a month for unlimited call and texts, plus $10 per gigabyte of data. No contracts or termination fees. Google will even refund your unused megabytes. Sounds awesome. So what’s the catch already?
Google Fiber is about to change the way TV ads look for subscribers in Kansas City. And it has the potential to upend the entire TV industry in the very near future.
As Verizon inches towards the end of its long-promised FiOS expansion, we can finally get a look at all the places these heavily trumpeted fiber cables have actually ended up. Behold the final(ish) Verizon FiOS Fiber map. It's bleak as hell.
Who doesn't like blindingly fast internet? Movie studios who don't want people to watch their movies, apparently. A leaked survey obtained by TorrentFreak shows studios fretting over how Google Fiber's rapid advance—the company announced in February its plans to expand to 34 U.S. cities—could increase piracy, while…
According to a FCC filing submitted on Monday and uncovered by Reuters, Google might be working on some kind of wireless network, offering sweet, sweet internet without giving all of your monies to AT&T.
Move over, Google Fiber. There's (maybe) a new gigabit internet game in town, and it's (maybe) coming to 100 cities and municipalities by way through AT&T, at some point in the future. Maybe.
It's finally time! Google just announced that it's "exploring" the idea of bringing Fiber to nine more metropolitan areas across the country—34 cities in total. And based on the map Google made to show what the expansion would look like, you're in luck if you live in the South.
Fast internet is fast. Google Fiber's gigabit connections? That's like driving a sports car compared to the go-cart-speed connection that's probably in your house. But new technology from IBM opens the door for connections that are beyond fast. Comparatively, it's like flying a fighter jet.
Google Fiber—which for most of us is an idea better than any dream we've ever had—is expanding. After blessing Kansas City with superlightspeed Internet, it's moving on to Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah. Chances are you probably don't live there. Chances are you might have not even heard of Provo. Chances are you're…
When you combine Google Fiber, a robot and a boy 1,800 miles away from a baseball game, you already know it's going to be a good story. But this is better than just good. Google Fiber helped a boy with a rare blood disorder throw out the first pitch at a baseball game that was 1,800 miles away.
We've all been quietly—or loudly—hoping that our town would be the next to get Google's speedy fiber. In the wee hours of the morning, Google announced the next lucky metropolis. And then immediately took it back.
Google has announced the first expansion of its new Fiber service. Its internet provision will now spill out of Kansas City, Kan., and Kansas City, Mo., into the city of Olathe, Kan.—a Kansas City suburb with 125,000 residents.
If you're looking for the fastest, most reliable internet service provider, here you have the ranking of all the major ISPs in the United States. It's actual, real world performance—compiled by Netflix from all its customer data: 30 million members watching 1 billion hours of movie content every month.
