This is a plus for consumers ...

I would say this is a plus for the consumer in the
long run. Google is going to install giga speed
networks in select areas. If it works out and the
consumers like it. This is going to force other
ISPs to increase the bandwidth to the consumer.
Having good download speeds are good in some areas,
but most have poor upload speeds. They need to
increase the upload speeds ... I would like to
have a good 7 mbps / 7 mbps over 20 mbps / 2 mbps.
An a price tag around $50 ...
