Interesting Work

Not really one that likes to see increased RF penetration. I would have certainly preferred a more local technology like WiFi. I don't see any mention of LTE or mobile technology. Only that the spectrum is licensed. That does not mean google will be using the same technology on it. Mostly to me it means WiFi was not powerful enough for the number of base stations Google wanted to deploy.

opens more questions than it answers.
"Then said I, Wisdom [is] better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom [is] despised, and his words are not heard. " Ecclesiastes 9:16


This guy suggests it would be LTE. But I wonder if it could be WiFi protocol on licensed spectrum.

I'm pretty much a nobody... but I think it would be cool if the hardware that came with your fiber would broadcast a wifi signal... separate from anyone personal wireless router that they use. Then everyone with any google fiber would be able to walk around KC and be able to have some internet in all the fiberhoods.

I've always wondered why my isp doesn't do that. I mean we all have cable modems (majority are owned by my isp).... and alot of us have wireless routers plugged into cable modems... I pick up like 7 signals from my neighbors... I live in a small town but I bet there's not a spot were I'm not getting hit by a wifi signal (most protected)... but if my isp used some kinda of cable modem/router combo and then limited signal to thier customers... just seems like they could easily do something like this.

Ok, now proceed to rip this comment apart for being "stupid".
