Residents of Kansas City Google Fiber already enjoy with its 700 Mbps downstream
The people of Kansas City, Missouri, are already enjoying the service of Google Fiber , the first foray into the area of the ISPs in the Mountain View company and promises upload and download speeds of 1 Gbps to only U.S. $ 70 per month, much cheaper than any other option within the U.S. market.
One of the beneficiaries has been Mike Demarais, founder of a start-up called Threedee and climbed via Twitter a picture with the internet speed you’re getting from Google Fiber, which reaches 700 Mbps downstream and 620 Mbps upstream. Demarais is one of many entrepreneurs who have migrated straight to Kansas City just to be one of the beneficiaries of the Google service.
“Just installed it today and I’ve been stuck in front of my notebook during the last hours. That’s incredible. I think I will not ever leave my house. “Said Demarais. “The first thing I did was download Ubuntu for BitTorrent. I think it took two minutes. “
