Google Fiber is being cranked up to 10 gigabit

Google is working on super-fast Internet, making its current 1 gigabit Fiber service look like dial up (NASDAQ:GOOG)

When Google first unveiled its Fiber service, most thought its 1 gigabit speeds were out-of-this-world... well, not so much now that the Mountain View-based giant is working on 10 gigabit connections.




Yes, 10 gigabit: 10 times the speed of its already-blazingly-fast 1 gigabit service. Google CFO, Patrick Pichette, has said: "That's where the world is going. It's going to happen. That's what we're working on. There's no need to wait". The technology for 10 gigabit connections isn't quite ready, with Google still in the research phase of things.


Pichette has made it very clear that it could be years before we see connections laid into the ground at the consumer scale, but also said that Google has no intention of stopping the 1 gigabit speeds that are being offered up by Google Fiber. With the FCC requesting gigabit connections in all 50 states across the US by the end of next year, it will be interesting times ahead for US residents.
