Google has come to an agreement with Stanford University, where the former will be given a free license to build an ultra-high speed broadband network which will connect to the university’s Residential Subdivision. This is more or less an 850 faculty, where the trial is expected to deliver Internet speeds up to 1Gbps – that is roughly 100 times faster than what most regular Joes get in their homes today. Expect the ground breaking process to begin from early next year onwards. Doesn’t this news give you at least one more reason to make sure you score good enough results to end up at Stanford University for your tertiary education?
