Google fiber may be ahead of its time

by Spencer Marona, Managing Director

According to a recently published article on OregonLive.com, here are some of the things Portland can expect should Google bring their lightening fast internet fiber to the area:

1. Delays with installation of its networks
2. Ice cream socials and fiber rallies encouraging homeowners to advocate for their service
3. "Fiber rabbits"...everywhere
4. Expensive, but transparent pricing
5. Pac-12 Network, but not AMC
6. Speed that could be too much today, but not in 5-10 years
7. Apartment issues. Even if Google "fiber rabbits" burrow into a neighborhood, many landlords have existing contracts with other internet providers.
