New Cities Coming To Google Fiber

In the past few years, gigabit Internet has grown from a hypothetical idea and turned into reality. Thanks to the people who have been working hard to build networks with speeds nearly a 100 times faster than what we have today. There is a huge demand for high-speed Internet and people want it at their homes and workplaces as soon as possible. As a result, hundreds of mayors from various US cities have stated that widespread high-speed Internet access is a must if they want innovation in the country and it could also help other factors like economic growth, education etc…

Everyone wants to access high-speed networks. Nine cities from metro areas in US have been invited to work along with Google and help them explore the requirements for Google Fiber, Google’s fibre-to-the-premises service in the United States, providing broadband internet and television to a small and slowly growing number of locations.

Research has recently focused on the link between depression and low-speed internet and the findings are surprising. There is a strong link between slow internet speed and depression. From a mental-health perspective, high-speed internet is turning out to be an effective panacea.
