Google plans to offer broadband service

"Google is getting into the broadband business, taking on the cable and telephone companies in an effort to make speedy Internet access available to more people.

The Internet giant announced on its blog Wednesday that it�planned to deploy a fiber-optic network to at least 50,000 homes and as many as 500,000. The network will deliver faster Internet speed at a competitive price, the company said.�

It will build and test broadband networks in one or�a small number of trial locations across the United States. Communities that want to be considered can apply here."
