-- The first Google Fiber connections were released on Tuesday (13) in the city of Kansas City, USA. The lucky city dwellers, who were the first to have the chance to subscribe to Google's fiber optics are being benefited with an Internet whose average download speed varies between 600 and 700 Mbps wired Ethernet and 200 Mbps network Wi-Fi
Mike Demarais, one of the first residents of the area to receive the news, confirmed to Ars Technica that the site connection is so fast that it's "unbelievable"
. Excited, he ensures that "probably will not leave this house" for a long time. The question, however, how long it takes Google to offer this to all its Internet subscribers in the region and also to bring the technology to other sites.
A list of nearby areas to receive fiber optic Internet Google includes areas north and south of Kansas City, and Westwood, Westwood Hills, Mission Woods. The region also houses the Fiber Space, where he was given the kickoff of the project and now shows details about the impact of Google Fiber community.

Fiber, according to the official description of the project's own website, "is a different kind of" Internet connection that offers 100 times faster than current broadband. The service offered, however, is much more than that. Besides the super-fast connection, the user who hires the plan receives a range of benefits.
The full package costs $ 120 (£ 240) per month and entitles television with 160 channels, and even comes with a Network Box, which acts as a modem and router, and a Storage Box for storing files, and TV Box, which is the television signal decoder. "From Toast," a Google Nexus tablet 7 works as a remote control for everything.
