Re: re:FCC chairman supports broadband data caps & UBB
said by GlennAllen:Any kickbacks are well in the future. Genachowski & major industry players are too smart to pay anything now and especially in cash. The payoffs, if they have in fact been promised, will come in the form of campaign contributions if Genachowski ever decides to run for office. Or in the form of lucrative consulting contracts or job offers 2 yrs after Genachowski leaves the FCC.

The "Playbook" for Google Fiber I have read most of the "playbook" and am confused.
I thought Google Gigabit was to be a full FTTH physical plant to every house, apartment building, business building, government building, factory, store, diner, gas station, farm, and fruit stand inside the cities of Kansas City KS and Kansas City MO.
The "Playbook" says there is a need for WiFi mesh networks to connect under-served and non-served areas.
If the network is full FTTH, then there should not be any under-served or non-served areas.
What is Google really doing out there?
Are they just putting in some very large, very high capacity fiber optic cable rings? Seems like a giant middle mile project, if that is the case. Nice to have, but not meeting the original goal of a fully gigabit connected research and development municipal area for Google application developers to use.
