Google Fiber is an internet and television service provided by Google that offers 5 Mbps to a 1 GPS (1,000 Mps), which is a superfast speed. In 2011, Google launched a trial in a residential community in Palo Alto, CA. According to an article, from the "digitaltrends.com" website, Google Fiber service was then offered in the Kansas City, KS area in 2013, and has now expanded to the Kansas City, MO area. According to the article, due to limited Internet network infrastructure and fiber optics, that is required to get gigabit Internet speeds, Google Fiber is only offered in only a few states and a few cities. Google plans to install Google Fiber Internet service in Provo, Utah, plans to announce its Internet rollout plan in the near future (digitaltrends.com).
Google, also, plans to expand the Fiber network to Austin, Texas, and Seattle. Google Fiber has over 220 + channels, HD, and like other cable companies, it has thousands of shows and movies including smart search, DVR, clear HD, and a Fiber TV app. Google Fiber now offers DSL phone service with unlimited local and nationwide calling, and one terabyte of cloud storage that allows individuals to back-up and access their files on the go. It saves the files in the cloud storage for safekeeping even if your smartphone or computer is lost or stolen. The service includes Wifi and it also includes a free Nexus 7 with the purchase of new installation service, and you can also stream live TV programs, as well, on the tablet. (Google).
I would suggest that Google Fiber finds a way to get faster speeds than their competitors. Also, collaborate on ideas to expand the Fiber optics by getting involved in different communities to explain their product and services so they can expand to different cities a lot faster. I would even consider communicating with private owners and residents by having township meetings; and/or have salesmen to set up sessions to advertise their products and services in order to get a quicker response to allow more installations in residential areas.
