Google Australia’s Engineering Director Explains Why We Don’t Need Google Fiber
Alan Noble is the engineering director of Google Australia, and he says that there’s absolutely no need for Google Fiber Down Under. .... Noble said that there was just no need for Google to become an ISP in Australia because eventually, everyone would have Gigabit speeds .... In theory, the NBN should fulfill that need in Australia. Restricting the NBN to 100Mbps speeds is purely a commercial decision, not a technical one. There is no technical reason the NBN could not run at Gbps speedsWhen I read the headline I thought the guy might say there is no need for fiber, wireless is the better option. But he did not say that.
