Google Takes Fiber Strategy to Mobile with Nova

In present, Google is in news because of its Fiber network and according to recent reports, fiber Google’s Nova will become the MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) as per Google’s fiber strategy. Google is a company, which has its hands on every service which is essential for regular life like; each and every pie on this planet earth and it ranges from GPS service to automated cars, from Smartphones to other swappable components and from best internet service to Android platforms. It is a well known fact that as a developer Google is the biggest mobile operating systems and it also has its own Smartphones, if you will believe, recent rumors so Google is going to enter into carrier market. According to same rumors, Google has just picked up steam services known as NOVA on the platform of T-Mobile and Sprint infrastructure.

As per reports, Google’s Nova is going to be the MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) and it is third part that uses a carrier’s network for availing their own internet service. Google’s report from Android Police suggests and explains that Google Voice can be the lynchpin of the strategy because it is possible to make the phone calls from Google Voice via data connection or Wi-Fi and it can be the used to make regular calls.

To make the internet plan more attractive, reports are stating that Nova will provide unlimited data, which can do wonder in the market of carriers and it is an obligation of you will make the phone calls through the data connection. Same as other unlimited data plans NOVA will be available for Wi-Fi also.

Fighting over spectrum can be the main reason behind taking the MVNO approach as it is possible that Google can lose battle over spectrum and due to that company can avoid maintaining and building of its own towers in all over the nation which can be big headache for company, apart from all this MVNO approach can be nice option for consumers as well. In normal way, MVNO doesn’t offer contracts, but this time nothing is going to stop Google as it could also be the perfect way for Google to offer its Nexus line of devices on affordable price or subsidy.

Nexus is cheaper than other phones, which are high profile and non-subsidized, as for Nexus 6 $199 is much better than $649 for Nexus 6 in the Google Play store. It could be good for customers because in simple terms it will add the competition into market, if you will be able to get subsidized and unlocked Nexus 6 from Google Play store with their own SIM card, it means AT&T and Verizon can feel motivated to compete on lower prices.

It will be not surprise, if in future Google will control its own provider, it can be both hardware and as well as software distribution. It is expected that Google Fiber will be turning point for internet and phone services provides and customers as well.

Finally the wait is over for the residents of Austin, and now they can get the gigabit-speed connectivity, which is 100 times faster than other the speed of other of ISPs provides. 

Now residents of South and Southeast Austin can sign up for high-speed Internet service Google Fiber, Google Fiber representatives said. Before some days Google Fiber has unveiled its Downtown “Fiber Space” and payment plan options. In an official event company announced the launch of Google Fiber, a gigabit-speed service for the residents of Austin, Texas. As per Mark Strama, Google Fiber Head, “As we all know that the greater speed can bring the tons of opportunities for the city as well as for country, perhaps at this time we can’t even predict those opportunities”.

Earlier in April 2013, Google was announced the launch of Fiber into Austin, and residents have been eager to start using the service ever since, but due to some reasons its take too long. David Anthony, a Technical program manager, stated that “We have three stages before the launch of Google Fiber and they are planning, permitting, and construction”. The more he added that Google Fiber service is now ready for the south and southeast portions of the city as here we got the permits earlier to build the infrastructure.

Google Fiber plan for residents of South and Southeast Austin: 

In normal plan all the Google Fiber customers have to pay the $70 a month and then they will have the download and upload speeds up to 1 Gbps in an addition of 1 TB of cloud storage across Google Drive, Google+ photos and Gmail. For premium service customers need to pay the $ 130 per month and they will get the TV plan with over 150 channels including HD channels and they will be able to record up-to eight shows simultaneously as package offers. In both plans customers need to pay the $ 300 as construction fee with a commitment of one-year. Whenever, the speed is limited to only1 Mbps upload speeds and 5 Mbps download speed. Google Fiber is also available for professional organizations where small business owners need to pay the $100 a month for the plan which will include super-fast Internet speed with a 1 static IP in $ 20 a month or 5 static IPs in $ 30 a month.

Signup deadline for Google Fiber: 

All the five regions in Austin have different deadlines to sign up for Google Fiber as; the region of Bluebonnet has the deadline of January 19, 2015, but in closer look at Bluebonnet shows the split into smaller portions and each portion need to get the certain number of sign-ups to get the Google Fiber connectivity. On the other hand region of Onion Creek have the deadline of July 16, 2014 to sign up for Google Fiber, however in all 28 regions no none have met the sign-up goal yet.

Google Is Working On 10-Gigabit Internet Connection

Google Fiber could be available within three years with 10 Gigabit per second, Google's chief financial officer Patrick Pichette has announced. Google Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette said that the Internet giant is going to achieve data transmission at the rate of 10 GB per second.

The report Wired at USA Yesterday, citing a speech by Pichette at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference this week. “After 1 GB / s we are working to get 10 Gb / s”, have the manager told, who was worked at Bell Canada from 2001 to 2008. Google is not only a search engine giant but also a Internet service providers and with Google Fiber provides a fiber optic connection to a 1 Gb / s in both the up- and downstream and no volume limit for 70 U.S. dollars per month.

For $ 120 per month for two years contract period, there is also a package with numerous TV channels in HD, including a set- top box, Google Tablet Nexus 7 and a NAS. The third form is a collective Internet access with 5 Mbit / s downstream and 1 Mbit / s upstream for a sum of 300 U.S. dollars without volume limitation and with the guarantee that the service is at least seven years disposal. To avoid expensive civil engineering works as possible, it was agreed in Kansas City to hang the cable to any existing above-ground tower of the city.

Instead of the glass fiber to move anywhere, only such Fiber Hoods were used. In telephony Google Fiber had waived because of the high burden and costs. For the television signal his own technique was developed and utilized. The set-top boxes and routers are self-made by Google himself. A company spokesman told Wired that it was part of the corporate culture of Google, to improve the products and to question the limits of innovation.

“But there are no plans to offer 10 Gbit / s in the near future.” Huawei and Vodafone want to reach a transmission rate of 2 Tbit / s over fiber in January 2014 in a field trial over a distance of 3325 km. The field trial was carried out in several cities in central and southern Germany in the backbone network of the British telecommunications group.

They used a rating based on Super Channel PDM - 16QAM signals platform that takes advantage of the spectral band better. Alcatel- Lucent and BT had done similar field tests with a data transfer rate of 1.4 terabits per second performed in the January 2014.
