Somebody's gotta have the inside scoop on Google Fiber launching tomorrow..??

https://fiber.google.com/savethedate/

Live broadcast over YouTube tomorrow. Anybody have any early news on this? Will it be available all over the Metro? How long will the waiting list be?

Anybody know anything? I'm impatient.

The video, plus the comment makes this funny.





Hilarious, inadvertent endorsement from AT&T. This video paused to load several times while connected to my AT&T DSL line. I'm convinced...where do I sign?!?!

My thoughts exactly. $300 for 7 years is $3.57/month....that's crazy.

So after that first year of TW, you're only looking at an extra $10 difference between TW's 10MB connection and Google's 1000MB connection. And TW's price is sure to raise more in another year.

TW even words it so they can raise the price however much they want after that 12 month promotion. They won't even quote you what the "Standard rate" will be once your promotion is over. They simply say "After the promotional period ends, you will be charged the standard rate that is in effect at that time. We suggest you contact your local office at the end of your promotional period." What kind of shitty business is that?

Considering Google's prices, and the fact that TW has tons of little surcharges and equipment fees that they don't include in their quotes, Google's prices are more than competitive...
well i've been with TW for a long time(10+years) and my 10mb Road Runner month-to-month is a base 29.99 with a total of 36.99 after all the taxes and shit.

in fact, i think 5 bucks of that extra stuff is because i recently dropped the rest of Time Warner. so they charge me extra for keeping RR. It's 29.99 + 5 dollar rental to TW + tax.

so you're doing something wrong

I could be wrong but I think google is 1 Gigabit/s = 125 Megabyte/s.

Today's internet speeds are measured in Megabits / second. Your math is correct but there is no reason to measure the speed in Megabytes.

Ah, he posted MB so that confused me. Is he really paying $60 for 10 Mps?

Er, ok I guess he is. I have FIOS and I just tested my internet speed at 15 Mbs. It's hard to imagine 80x faster than what I have now.

That is what makes what google is doing so revolutionary.

Realistically, your own computer (and possibly the connection of the server on the other end) will be the bottleneck. That kind of speed for consumers is just plain unheard of.

I've been crunching the numbers and I just don't see how I can utilize that kind of bandwidth presently. Wireless G tops out at around 20mbps, N at around 70mbps. I could run a drop to my media center [where most of my bandwidth gets used] but my media center PC does not have a gigabit NIC. So at best I could utilize maybe 1/10th of the pipe at any given time.

I'm wondering if the 5mbps circuit might be the better option.

FYI....

Live in an apartment and want Google Fiber? Does Google not recognize your address to complete the registration form?

Here's how to get it:

I called up Google spokeswoman Jenna Wandres, who told me that the manager of my apartment complex would have to fill out a form to get into Fiber consideration. This form. You'll want to send the link to your apartment complex or condo manager, too, if you want Fiber.

"We're encouraging residents to talk to their landlords first, and tell them that they're interested in having Google Fiber for their apartment building," Wandres said. "Then the landlord can get in touch with us online and ask us to build to the building."

So downtown apartment dwellers, if you want Fiber, talk to your landlords and send 'em that link.

None of it matters unless they bring it to Lee's Summit (for me at least). Hearing stories about people who can get the NFL network and faster downloads than TW Turbo/Extreme is just salt in the wound. But I love that we're on the brink of cable companies having their near-monopoly broken. That being said, I'm sure TWC will spend more time at first trying to block the effort than competing with them.

Oh well, bad day!

I always wonder about this sort of thing. What is the fastest wireless router speeds and wireless adapter speeds on laptops for example?

I have 6mps speed DSL but my wireless won't even keep up with that so why run faster?

Yeah, that's definitely an issue. Assuming you have a perfect connection, throughput on a wifi connection is usually half of what it's capable of, so a 54mbps wifi connection would only be able to get around 27mbps. You can get an 108mbps router, but the technology isn't very common on devices.

So basically, most people wouldn't get much benefit from a wifi device above 27mbps at the absolute most. However, a desktop computer could be plugged in directly (or through a gigabit router). Even in that case, though, I'd bet that the computer itself would have trouble keeping up.
