Google Fiber Space

For a year, Google has claimed that its Fiber Internet will be 100 times faster than the current average speed. That's a nice round number, but it's hard to imagine what 1-gigabit-per-second Internet service looks like. So when Google made its splashy July announcement that it was beginning to sign up homeowners for Fiber, it did a smart thing: It let potential subscribers test it out. The Web giant's Fiber Space office resembles a living-room showroom at Nebraska Furniture Mart. But it's more. To demonstrate exactly how fast Fiber is, visitors can fiddle with Netflix on a TV (pick a movie, push Play and — boom! — it's straight to the opening credits); play around with a laptop; and witness sites loading so fast, they'll loathe their home-connection speeds. Drag Fiber skeptics to the space. It will change their minds — and leave buffering a distant memory.
