"We're planning to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the United States. We'll deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections. We plan to offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people."

Google is going to lay fiber to up to 500,000 homes and offer 1 gigabit internet access for a "reasonable" cost. They are asking for for interested communities to answer their RFI. Sounds like a pretty nice deal. It seems like they want to use it for experimenting with their next generation web apps. So if you are interested in really fast Internet and using Google's latest software check out their RFI. According to the information they are going to be creating next generation "killer apps". Given the brainpower they employ they are bound to come up with some pretty cool stuff.
