Google Fiber is being installed all over Kansa City right now and people are so happy about the blazing fast speed that they've posted pictures of their speed tests. It's ridiculous. People with Google Fiber can expect 700 Mbps down on ethernet and about 200 Mbps down on Wi-Fi. That's ISP heaven on Earth.

Mike Demarais, founder of Threedee, told Ars Technica:

"We just got it today and I've been stuck in front of my laptop for the last few hours... It's unbelievable. I'm probably not going to leave the house."

We wouldn't either. And for the first thing Demarais did when Google Fiber was up and running at his home? He BitTorrented Ubuntu. It took him two minutes. Bless his heart and bless Google Fiber.

I can get 800mbps, maybe more, but i don't see the point in it myself.

For avid PC gamers using Steam, those speeds would be a godsend.

This: I'm more than satisfied with my capability. Just the wireless seems to go bonkers and slow down at times. It goes back to normal if i reset the modem. Its weird.

Haha! I'm still conditioned to feel some relief when the sounds goes past the beeps. It meant it managed to connect! I think i played PSO on Dreamcast with one of those. The "good" old times.
