July 27, 2012- The Internet’s search leader, Google Inc., introduced its Google Fiber ultra-high speed service on Thursday in Kansas City. In September, installations of the service could began, said company executives. Google hopes it can extend the service to many other cities thereafter. The internet search giant promised that users would have access speeds that were over 100 times faster than the traditional telecommunications and cable companies in the U.S. offer.
Google said that speeds for Internet have entered a leveling out period for broadband service since 2000. Google is ready to make that change with its new ultra-high speed service. Google Fiber will include both internet and television and is aimed at surpassing the current providers and allowing users to search for live channels, YouTube, Netflix, recorded shows as well as on demand programming, but no phone service will be available.
Google will also roll out new packages for businesses, put details were not provided. Google Fiber has over 100 networks and will cost $120 per months for a TV package, 1GB per second speeds for Internet and 1 terabyte cloud usage.
The television packages will include many popular networks that major media companies own like NBC Universal, Viacom, Inc and Discovery Communications. There will also be premium movie stations available.
