  1. Earlier this year, Google announced that it would deploy an experimental fiber optics network offering an ultra high-speed broadband Internet connection (we're talking 1Gb/s download) to 50,000-500,000 people in select US communities. While Google still plans to follow through with that rollout, things are progressing a little slower than expected the search giant said in a blog post yesterday.

    I hope that Google would also consider testing their fiber optic network in international sites, although that would be a really long shot. That would be so cool and we don't have to put with ISPs and their pricey "broadband" plans.
