Google Fiber Expansion Does A World of Good

Jan 28, 2015 0

For all of our technology enthusiasts, we, at The Good News Notebook, have some exciting news. Google is rolling out its hyper-fast Internet services in the four southeastern cities. Construction in Atlanta and the three other cities named Tuesday will begin in a few months, according to Google.

Can we say, “Yahoo!” Well, that’s a poor choice of words, but considering that Google Fiber is more than 100 times faster that cable and DSL providers like AT&T, Charter, xFinity, and other, you see why our digital staff is elated.

So, why is faster internet speed good? First of all, according to Google Fiber’s website, “A better network enhances opportunities to connect with the things we love.” In addition, you get 100 times more speed at only $70 per month; a rate that is clearly affordable for low income families and businesses on the go. Clearly, Google Fiber is Good News as the firm seeks to expand to over 34 cities in 9 metro areas across the U.S.

For students and schools, this addition of Google Fiber to the newly formed, “one-to-one technology” initiative is a game changer. Now, high definition video broadcasts and even, internet based standardized testing methods can be readily implemented with the concerns for bandwidth or speed.


HOW GOOGLE FIBER DOES GOOD

However, we, at the GoodNewsNotebook.com, love the story of Nick LeGrand. Watch this touching video of how GoogleFiber allowed little Nick achieve a BIG DREAM.

Just like any other 13-year-old baseball fan, Nick had dreams of one day making it to the majors. Being diagnosed with a rare blood disorder put that dream on hold—until, that is, Nick’s family, the baseball community and Google Fiber teamed up and used the power of web to make his dream a reality. With the help of the web, Nick was able to throw out the first pitch at A’s/Yankee’s game at the Oakland Coliseum in California from the Google Fiber Space in Kansas City—more than 1800 miles away.

After months of a worldwide search, Nick found a bone marrow donor. But there are thousands of people like Nick who still need a match. For more information on how to be a match, visit: www.bethematch.org


The announcement marks the latest salvo in a growing battle between Google and more traditional Internet providers for the next generation of Web users. It also comes on the heels of President Obama’s call to promote broadband in cities that are unserved or underserved by large commercial providers. Google Fiber already sells Internet service with download speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second — roughly 100 times faster than the national average — for $70 a month in other cities, such as Provo, Utah.
