Re: Free land and electricity?

I think it also opens up Google Fiber to providing wholesale access to new companies that wish to resell their service, similar to how DSL was able to be resold due to telco subsidies. More competition sounds good.

One problem with that: you need an awfully large company with extensive pre-existing peering arrangements to afford offering unmetered 1Gbps for $70/month.

I doubt "Mom&Pop" ISPs could afford to try competing against Google's own internet on Google's infrastructure since their internet transit costs would be several times higher (likely more than an order of magnitude) than Google's.
