Today Google Announced that they are planning to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a few trial locations across the United States.They are going to deliver 100 times faster Internet speed 1 Gigabit per second to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.
Google told that they urged the FCC to look at new and creative ways to get there in its National Broadband Plan.Google wants to see entirely a new world with Ultra High-Speed broadband networks and they want to know what the people will do with that high-speed networks.
Here are the some of the aspects of this Experiment:
- Next generation apps: We want to see what developers and users can do with ultra high-speeds, whether it’s creating new bandwidth-intensive “killer apps” and services, or other uses we can’t yet imagine.
- New deployment techniques: We’ll test new ways to build fiber networks, and to help tell and support deployments elsewhere, we’ll share key lessons learned with the world.
- Openness and choice: We’ll operate an “open access” network, giving users the choice of multiple service providers. And consistent with our past advocacy, we’ll manage our network in an open, non-discriminatory and transparent way.
Google invites the Government and people to join this and share their view.If you want to respond visit this page.

Google is going to collect the responses up to March 26,2010.And they will release the list of target communities later.
