What will a fiber network mean to the communities that Google selects?
- A video conference without connection hiccups.
- A movie rental that takes five minutes to download, as opposed to an hour.
- Streaming videos of lectures taking place hundreds of miles away with resolution so precise that you can practically see the loose threads on the professor’s sports coat.
- Fast Connections
