Google's initiative to provide experimental 1Gbps fiber optics broadband network service to a target user group of 50,000 to 500,000 people, has attracted massive response in terms of individual user applications and community membership applications in a single day (numbers actually doubling up in a time span between 10AM – 5PM) reaching gigantic figures of 194,000 user applications and 1,100 community responses. As a result, Google's iconic “pro-net-neutrality” status has gained momentum and once again sparked the fire that surrounded the rumours of 'GoogleNet' way back in 2005.

Google's 1 Gigabit Fiber optics network - spread across the globe

In spite of all the paperwork Google has to filter through (as a direct consequence of this massive support from its user and community fan-base), Google appears optimistic about picking a couple of locations to begin this most anticipated project by the end of the year. Meanwhile, we could dream that the massive Google fan-base keeps this community alive by uploading interesting and intriguing videos to boot our ever-hungry entertainment needs.
