Google Fiber, the Internet search giant's super-fast Internet experiment in Kansas City, Mo., that operates at a speed 100 times faster than a typical broadband connection, could be coming to a city near you.
During Google's fourth-quarter earnings call, Google Chief Executive Larry Page and Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette made it clear Google Fiber is not a "hobby" for the company.
"It's been great to see the success there with the initial roll-out," Page said.
He cautioned: "We are still in the very early stages of it." But he emphasized: "We are excited about the possibilities there."
Pichette said Google Fiber installations are growing each week. "People just love the product," he said.
"It’s not a hobby," he added. "We really think we should be making a good business with this opportunity."
"We are going to continue to look at the possibility of expanding."
