I have said before, if Google is to end up a trillion dollar company - and it has a higher chance than does Apple, Apple has peaked - then the ISP space is where it is at. Google has to go global with its ISP ambitions.

Google’s Internet Service Might Actually Bring the U.S. Up to Speed
a radical new business direction for the company .... Google’s gigabit Internet service is priced at $70 per month ..... Users subscribing for a TV service get a two-terabyte storage box for recorded shows and a Nexus 7 Android tablet to use as a remote control. (As a budget alternative, Internet at five megabits per second is available for a one-time fee of $300.) ...... it can cost between $850 and $1,250 per customer to get fiber installed ..... entry of superfast Internet may aid local entrepreneurship .... (In Verizon’s case, the company generally charges $99 per month with a two-year contract for service of up to 300 megabits per second for downloads and 65 megabits per second for uploads). .... Another route to juicing Internet speeds to gigabit-per-second levels is government investment. Chattanooga, Tennessee, received such a boost when the local power utility got a $111 million U.S. Department of Energy grant as part of federal stimulus efforts that built out the city’s smart grid
