Google 1Gbps network near Stanford is live

"Some residents near Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., are getting the first taste of Google's 1-gigabit-per-second broadband service.

"The service has been live in the market for about a month, and it will continue to be rolled out to homes in the community, where mostly Stanford professors and faculty live. The service is free to residents for the first year.

"Google is building the Stanford fiber-to-the-home network and a larger network in Kansas City, Kansas, as sort of test beds for ultra-high speed broadband. So far, residents in the Stanford community are the first to get access to the high-speed networks that Google is building."
