A buried and forgotten fiber-optic network could provide broadband speeds more than 2,500 times faster than the fastest broadband currently available in New York City. The unused cable, called “dark fiber” is being snapped up by Google, who could become an nationwide ISP overnight. 

Google has been buying up dark fiber across the country in recent years and plans to launch an “ultra-fast” fiber optic-based Internet service in Kansas City, Mo., later this year that will deliver speeds of around 1 gigabit per second. That’s fast enough to download, say, the high-definition version of “Moneyball” from iTunes in about 30 seconds. 


Interesting news, but we’ve got a long way to go.
