WSJ: Google is exploring the use of wireless technology for Fiber service
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) has revealed in a recent report that tech giant Google is, according to regulatory filings, apparently exploring the 'wireless' option for the Google Fiber high-speed Internet service.
Google's reason behind mulling the 'wireless' option for their Fiber gigabit speed service is evidently rooted in the fact that installation of citywide fiber networks is expensive as well as time-consuming.
Under the 'wireless' option for the Fiber service, Google plans to deliver residential Internet via wireless transmitters deployed throughout major US cities.
Going by the WSJ report, regulatory filings have revealed that Google will probably test wireless transmitters for the Fiber service in 24 locations across the US. Initially, wireless technology will be used by Google instead of fiber-optic cables in around 12 major cities in which faster Internet service has been planned by the company. These cities include Los Angeles, Chicago and Dallas, among others.
About Google's plans with regard to the use of wireless technology for deploying its Fiber service, independent analyst Jeff Kagan said: "This latest reported move by Google toward wireless may mean we are starting to see a real horse-race beginning. It could let Google move into more cities, more quickly."
