Google Fiber’s Real-World Speeds are Crazy Fast

Google Fiber is being rolled out all over Kansas City right now and it’s finally gone live for some customers. The first question is how fast is it? Apparently, the $80 per month plan is crazy fast. People with Google Fiber can expect 700 Mbps down on ethernet and about 200 Mbps down on Wi-Fi, according to Ars Technica.

By comparison, I pay $55 per month for Verizon Fios and get download speeds of about 5 Mbps. That seems fast enough for my heavy downloading, streaming needs. I can’t even imagine 700 Mbps. The next question is when the hell does Google roll this out to other cities?
