Google may go down for a while, but Intel will benefit almost immediately from this news. They have to seriously load up on servers and this will force others to update their systems as well. All this will benefit Intel in a very big way. Buy INTC......NOW!!!!!!!!!!!
GOOG is as usual always on to Computer Science projects! They are cash cow, so they have more money than anyone else to keep experimenting things. It is no different than someone like Exxon Mobil says that they are going to build a solar farm or wind tunnel farm and distribute solar energy!
and already have built in competitors already in marketplace AND others will want to ride on GOOG's fiber same way the TelCo's have sharing agreements and there will be restrictions on what they can charge
Telco's have to share copper as they are a "common carrier". This FCC rule does not apply to new F/O installs such as FiOS. This is why VZ was quietly ripping copper out of houses where FiOS was installed. The buzz now is that they have backed off on copper removal . It was a non-issue on my FiOS install, I have 2 lines, one FiOS, one copper in 2 different name accounts.
