Re: Well

Interesting enough, I was doing a tracert from my hosting company to google, and discovered the following router
4 core1-2-2-0.ord.net.google.com (206.223.119.21)
which looks to be in Chicago, really neat they are using the fiber

So are we going to....

.....hear an uproar from whom-ever the local ISP is in the area, for squashing competition?

Or will that complaint never materialize because Google has scads more money than Lafayette LA?

Not sure how creating your own backbone is "squashing competition". Given the noise the RBOCs and cable companies have made regarding making companies like Google pay extra for transiting their networks, it only makes sense that Google minimize their exposure as much as possible, doncha think? It would suck to have to pay a tariff to AT&T just because your packets transited their backbone on the way to/from user X on some regional ISP.

I remember reading at dslr forums that google purchased a lot of dark fiber around the country a while back. Why buy all that and not use it? Everyone knows its coming, I can even see them coming with google linux operating system.
