Google is planning to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial spots across the country. "We'll deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-home connections," Google product managers said in a blog post Wednesday. "Our goal is to experiment with new ways to help make Internet access better and faster for everyone." The company said the networks will let consumers download a high-definition, full-length feature film in less than five minutes and allow rural health clinics to send 3-D medical images over the Web.
