Google Fiber, a subsidiary of Google, has filed applications in Missouri and Kansas to operate a video/TV service. Google is building its 1GB/s experimental network in Kansas City.
“We’re still exploring what products will be available when we launch Google Fiber,” Google spokeswoman Jenna Wandres said. The Internet service is expected to launch at least in one unspecified neighbourhood sometime early this summer.
In the Kansas application, Google reportedly said it will “utilise national and regional video headend facilities to send IPTVacross a private network to subscribers.”
