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.

City of Shawnee city council just approved a request for Google to come into the city with Fiber. I'm excited, but I was just about to pull the trigger on a TWC to DTV switch. 2 year contract there....wonder how long before GFiber would even become available (assuming they even come to Shawnee). Decisions, decisions.

The Google T.V. and Internet package is such a good deal.

If you have 6Mbps DSL and a single PC on 802.11G can't keep up, you have a problem with your wireless setup. A properly configured 802.11G setup should be able to peg a 20Mbps connection, and that's figuring in real-world conditions.

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.
When you start to figure in all of the variables (operating systems, GigE, etc.) your average Windows PC isn't going to be about to take advantage of speeds above 100Mb with any regularity.

Depending on environmental factors and number of devices, 802.11n whether you're talking about 2-channel 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz, can provide speeds that are easily comparable to wired connections. I have a Netgear 5Ghz bridge I use for testing and I can write files to my NAS at 95Mbps over a wireless connection. That of course assumes that the NAS can write at those speeds in the first place, that I have excellent signal strength and line-of-sight between the bridge and the AP, etc.

Your builder isn't entirely wrong. By and large, while wireless isn't as good as wired, it's still "good enough".

I usually recommend that if you're building, put in wires. If you already have a house, wireless is generally a better option than fishing the walls...

Time Warner, feeling the pressure, reaches an agreement to carry NFL Network.

http://www.businessweek.com/news/201...etwork-redzone

The National Football League reached agreement with Time Warner (TWC) Cable Inc. to carry the league-owned NFL Network and RedZone Channel, a person with direct knowledge of the situation said.

The multiyear accord may be announced later today, according to the person, who was granted anonymity because the contract hasn’t been signed. New York-based Time Warner, the second-largest U.S. cable company with about 12 million subscribers, had been the only major cable provider without the NFL Network. It isn’t known when the channels will appear on Time Warner systems, the person said.

The agreement comes about a month after the most-watched U.S. sports league reached agreement with Cablevision Systems Inc. to carry the two channels.

NFL Network airs 13 primetime regular-season games. RedZone is a game-day network that shows touchdowns and important plays inside the 20-yard line. NFL Network will carry the Cleveland Browns at the Baltimore Ravens on Sept. 27.

Time Warner spokeswoman Maureen Huff declined to comment. NFL spokesmen Brian McCarthy and Dan Masonson didn’t immediately return e-mails and phone calls seeking comment on whether an agreement had been reached.
