"We’ll be looking at ways to bring ultra high-speeds to other communities," says a Google (GOOG) PR person, in a comment that might produce shudders at the offices of U.S. cable companies and telcos. The comment comes after Google took the wraps off its Kansas City TV/broadband fiber service, which includes a $70/month 1 Gbps tier and a free 5 Mbps tier.

    I just hope that it is economically feasible to expand quickly, but I would assume that it is not... I expect this to be something that will take years to expand to other areas, but I guess that I should not underestimate Google. They do have massive cash reserves, and will make money on the back end in advertising revenue, in addition to the profit from sales of their internet/TV bundle.
    The hope is that if Google will at least force the other cable co's to be more competitive on price and/or offer better speeds. The 5mb/s free basic internet trumps everything, Armstrong in my area charges $20-$30 for sub 1mb/s speeds... in this day and age, that shouldn't even be offered!

    I'm convinced; slowly, I'm re-positioning into GOOG.
