The big boys are going to do everything in their power to block Google from spreading nationwide. From what history shows almost everything Google puts their hand on turns to gold, does the word Andriod ring a bell. The US invented the internet as we know it today but we are near the bottom when it comes to speeds compared to other industrialized countries. Having traveled to Europe and Asia in last year or so I've been able to download music in 30 seconds or less, stream video without buffering, and surf the net with ease thanks to fiber. I for one would love to see Google go nationwide with their product and give some real competition to the incumbent ISPs and offer real broadband for a value.
Actually almost nothing google does turns to gold.... They have thier hits for sure, but most of their stuff is a flop. Google power, google docs has been meh, they've pretty much destroyed youtube, it's plagued with problems and is now FULL of advertising, google wave, buzz
They've had their hits, "google", android, earth, and they've been very succesful at a lot of ventures, but far from everything they touch turns to gold.
we'll see how fiber does. It won't go national.
