Don't Forget Canada, Google


Google has announced they're going to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the United States.

We'll deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections. We plan to offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.

1 gigabit per second... take a moment to absorb that.  Remember how excited we were when we could get 5mbps at home?

Google's experimental fiber network is meant as a strong message to the FCC that American's deserve better broadband.  I hope this message isn't lost on the CRTC here in Canada, a true digital ghetto.
