Google Fiber brings 1Gbps internet service to America

It looks like Google Fiber will bring bundled internet and TV - at some serious speeds.

Google Fiber launched today bringing 1Gbps fibre optic broadband to Kansas City in the US. The big G planned to offer this service in a bid to speed up the deployment of fibre optic broadband by the broadband and paid TV industries.

Coming with the Google Fiber TV service, which is only being tested in Kansas for now, will be a set-top box. This DVR will allow you to search online video including YouTube and your Netflix library while it also acts as a DVR for recording up to 500 hours of 1080p video. And you'll find plenty to fill it with the service providing all the major channels plus hundreds of fibre channels. And with that connection everything will be instant. Google has even thrown in a free Nexus 7 which can be used as a remote control. But as a US$120 per month service, you'd expect nothing but the best.
