So you’ve probably heard that Google is launching its own Fibre network in Kansas City, well here it is, with Google starting to ramp up information around the massive project, starting with this video, Introducing Google Fiber: The Next Chapter of the Internet, upping Internet speeds by upto 100x.
The installation is of course real, in typical Google style, a hand crafted set complete with electromagnetic powered cars, and brilliantly shot for the video. If you’re in Kansas City, you can check this out in person at the Fiber Space building. So my only question on the Google Fibre network is, if they already know so much about users through data collection, what’s going to happen when get become the ISP themselves? How dangerous could this be?!
