However, as 2014 saw the dawn of some defining technologies from 3D printing to Google Glass. In between came the rise of delivering high speed internet using fiber optics cable against the traditional broadbands. However, Google’s Fiber project takes internet speed to a whole new level. While it faces other competitors, people seem to be having special craving for the Google brand. However there is much than just sheer brand value that makes Google Fiber so appealing that cities are lining up and placing their best bets to get Google into entering their city.

In general, there was a giant leap from using a dial-up connection to using a broadband connection. This brought in numerous changes in the way people carried out their activities as they could now use faster connections. While still meditating on this amazing development in internet tech, another development came in and this involved leaping from broadband connections to high-speed fiber optic networks.
The face of the internet as we know it is about to change with the introduction of the Google Fiber – an internet connection service by Google. Google Fiber is presently available in just 3 cities – Austin, Kansas and Provo with plans to launch in 9 other cities – Salt Lake, Portland, San Jose, Nashville, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, Atlanta, Phoenix and San Antonio.
The closest competitor of Fiber is Verizon Fios which has more cities under its grip than Google. However, what leaves people craving for Google is the low prices, brand image and quality associated with the brand image. Verizon charges about $350 for its service at an average while the same drops to $120 for Google with a $300 one-time setup charge. With those numbers Google customers save hundreds or thousands of dollars based on their internet plan, against Verizon.
The best part of this Google service is that it will offer users with a much improved connection speed of 1 Gbps, be it downloading or uploading. Looking at this in real time shows that this speed will be at least 100 times faster than what an average American citizen has. What this means is that you can download an entire movie within 2-5 minutes.
However, before using this service, ensure that your device has support for Gigabit Ethernet as well as category 5 cabling or greater. Alternatively, you can also have an 802.11 AC compatible Wi-Fi router and a wireless adapter.
