I am just up the road from you and according to the Tech at the dslam up the road, I'm covered in the 1st wave of roll outs in early aug 2012.

I spoke to 2 techs performing an install in early April.

The mini-datacenter is almost finished - 82U's of usable server space and 42U's of infrastructure.

I haven't seen any utility work where I live (Wyco). I've been guessing over the past year that Google would just buy/lease AT&T's fiber lines (My house already has fiber U-verse) so they don't have to lay cable everywhere. Looks like that's not the case, which means I have to wait longer. DAMN

How Much Will Google's Fiber Network Cost?


Google on Wednesday announced an audacious plan to build what is essentially the most cutting-edge broadband network in the U.S. While it’s being misportrayed in certain segments of the media as an ISP effort, in reality it’s nothing more than an experimental network, much like Google’s early efforts to provide municipal Wi-Fi in the city of Mountain View, Calif. It will be a trial-only network, not Google’s entry into telecommunications services. And while the planned network won’t be cheap, in the end it will be worth the price.
The idea behind the network: provide bandwidth and see if it fosters new user behavior and thus innovations. I admire Google for creating a real-life laboratory that will provide intelligence to predict not only the future of the web, but also help it develop new products to stay relevant. By announcing this network, Google also showed why it’s quite distinct from its onetime peers such as Yahoo and AOL.
When I said that Google’s plan was audacious, I said so because of the cost. For starters, Google wants to offer 1 gigabit-per-second speeds to some 50,000 to 500,000 people. At 2.6 people per household, that roughly translates to between 20,000 and 200,000 homes. Our friend Ben Schachter, Internet analyst with Broadpoint AmTech, estimates that it will cost Google between $3,000 and $8,000 per home, or roughly $60 million to $1.6 billion, depending upon the final size and footprint of the network. If Google reaches, say, 100,000 homes, it would cost the company about half a billion dollars.
The folks from Calix Networks, a company that sells gear for FTTP networks, have developed an equation that allows them to calculate the cost per household depending on population density, which, according to them, is the single most important factor in calculating the cost of FTTP connection per home. These costs are quite varied, in some cases as much as $4,000 to connect a single home. Google’s final tab will depend on where it decides to build out the network.

The end cost is also determined by the kind of technology the company uses. While Passive Optical Networking technologies have come a long way — newer versions of Gigabit PON (GPON) have a range that extends up to 40 kilometers — there is a better than good chance that Google will opt for an all-Active Ethernet approach. Mike Fox, business development manager for the carrier networks division at telecom equipment maker Adtran, says that both technologies can get the job done. It just depends on how Google wants to build its network. Fox helped me break down the comparative costs of the two technologies.
A typical PON is made of two pieces: an optical line terminal (OLT) at the service provider’s central office, and an optical network terminal (ONT), which is used to terminate the fiber optic line and is typically outside the customer’s premises. A single ONT costs about $330, according to Fox. Since PON is a shared fiber technology, OLT costs are calculated in terms of ports and are about $80 per port. So the total per household is about $410. The fewer the number of ports, the higher the per-home costs.
Of course, when taken together with other costs such as fiber and construction, things start to add up pretty fast. In comparison, an Active Ethernet-based network is pretty much like a corporate Ethernet network. It’s a giant switched Ethernet infrastructure. It costs over $600 in electronics for an Active Ethernet-based network. This is closer to what Google has in mind, according to some experts I spoke with. But that’s not all.
Mike Day, chief technology officer of ADC Telecommunications, told me that this network is going to be a lot more expensive than somewhat similar ones. It would need a really fast switching fabric that in turn would be connected to the Internet backbone at astonishingly fast speeds. This seamlessness is what will bring true speed to the homes on the test network. Think of this as building a smooth Autobahn from the home to the backbone. Day said the network would need to overcome some major design challenges such as different data center architecture and a different style of servers that don’t become a bottleneck and are able to leverage the 1 Gbps speeds.
Is spending this much money — even for Google, which has about $25 billion in cash — a good idea? I think so. Just as car companies spend their R&D dollars on Formula One Racing teams to get a better idea of what new features could be included in their commercial vehicles, a company such as Google needs to explore the outer limits of broadband. (I will explore more on this topic in a different post.)
In addition, “Google has a secondary motivation here and that is to also push the FCC to accelerate its examination of using TV white spaces for wireless broadband,” says Jeff Heyman, broadband and video analyst for Infonetics Research. He points out that if “Google can make this endeavor successful for a number of communities, why couldn’t they do so for even more using white spaces? This FTTH initiative, in other words, could be a proving ground for Google as infrastructure provider.”
Is that likely? Perhaps not — but as someone who hearts broadband, I hope Google’s desire to push the limits brings about the change we so badly need.

Google Fiber to make July 26 announcement about start-up in KC
Announcement is expected to clear up parts of long-running high-tech mystery.


Google's announcement Wednesday that it would have a fuller announcement about its Kansas City Internet service next week was an ode to local history.


Google Inc., coy for more than a year about what it has in store for Kansas City, says it will tell us more next week.

The company’s blog designed for news on its coming ultra-high-speed Internet network in Kansas City and Kansas City, Kan., posted a notice at 7:30 a.m. Wednesday saying it will fill in some blanks on July 26.

The search engine giant selected the Kansas City area last year as the spot for its test of a network running fiber-optic cables directly to homes, and delivering Internet speeds roughly 100 times faster than the national broadband average.

Google didn’t elaborate much on Wednesday.

Rather, it posted a 30-second video posted under the headline “Google Fiber is coming” and the briefest of text promising: “Kansas City: Google Fiber is almost here. Look out for more information on July 26th.” The video makes nods to local history with pictures of Harry S. Truman, baseball great Satchel Paige and jazz legend Charlie Parker. It includes pictures of pioneers and modern-day Kansas City clichés such as barbecue.

It also shows contemporary and historic pictures of ordinary Kansas Citians — collected in a public solicitation months ago — and unveils what might be part of the marketing rhetoric for its coming service: “100 times faster Internet, 100 times the possibilities.”

Finally, in faint type, the video says the service “arrives on July 26.”

A Google spokeswoman would not say whether the announcement actually means somebody in Kansas City will get a light-speed connection next week.

“We’re excited to announce more information on Google Fiber next week,” said Jenna Wandres. “We haven’t elaborated on what arriving means.”

Google’s contractor, Atlantic Engineering, has been seen on streets on both sides of the state line for months digging the trenches and stringing the wire that will provide the system’s backbone.

There have not yet been reports, however, of connections to homes.

Much could be learned next week, starting with price. Google has only said that although its service will be far faster than services available to consumers in the market now, its costs will be comparable.

There have also been strong indications — through license and patent applications — that Google will bundle Internet hook-ups with a cable-like television service. Analysts have said that Google will need a TV package to lure customers from their existing cable subscriptions.

Google announced more than two years ago that it would build a network somewhere to deliver speeds of one gigabit per second — or 100 times faster uploads and 1,000 times faster downloads than most consumers can buy.

Default Google Fiber v.diggingthroughcss

So, upon digging through CSS files and whatever source code I could find, I came across this.


Godspeed, Google.
