An executive working for Google said on Wednesday that the search giant is working on a technology that would provide data transfer speeds over the Internet that are 10 times faster than their current Google Fiber service, which is currently exclusive to Kansas City.
During the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet conference Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette said the company is working on speeds that could hit 10 gigabits per second. Pichette called this the next generation of the Internet. He said:
"Faster speeds will increase the use of software as a service because users will be able to trust that critical applications that are data intensive will run smoothly over the Internet"
Google is expected to bring this service to the market within the next couple of years. On Wednesday he was asked whether Google Fiber will be coming to more cities, he responded "stay tuned."
