Gimme some Internet love, Google

In a surprising move, Google has initiated an "experiment" that enables governments and municipalities to participate in a project that'll enable fiber optic networks to be connected to every home and support a community of 50,000 to 500,000 people.

Wait, wait, what am I talking about?

Basically, Google wants to bring bleeding-edge speeds to your Internet connection, and by bleeding-edge I mean 1Gbps of sheer power. That can be utilized through the connection of these so-called "fiber optic cables" to your home, and while this is still a very American project, here's to hoping that Google will actually be able to expand this network worldwide. A fat chance, to say the least, but a tempting proposition.

One can learn more about this "experiment" in the Google Fiber site.
