Google Fiber

Well ok, it's not launched over here, and it's only in Kansas City at the moment, but it shows the kind of solutions that are out there and we're moving towards.

Google Fiber

All your browsing habits logged and sold to advertisers and there ain't no plugin that could stop that if you choose to take fibre/fiber from them and people thought Phorm was bad.

LOL, if you think Google's that bad, what about the security services? MI-5, GCHQ, NSA, CIA etc?

Hmm -

Now if Google would only take over OpenReach and show them how to roll out a product without asking everyone and their Cat if they want it first...

..then WE might have the service the (failed) government plans have threatened us with for years.

wishful thinking or what?

Only thing is, Google do ask everyone and their cat if they want it first. They won't install it without a minimum number of pre-registrations. And pre-registering costs $10.

Maybe they could partner with companies like Hyperoptic over here (ok, I'm biased on this one) and run Google TV and other services over their network?
