In today’s Google blog article, the company’s representatives announced their intention to build a x 100 faster network:
“We’re planning to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the United States. 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-the-home connections. We plan to offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000 and potentially up to 500,000 people.”
But what are the key drivers for this initiative?
According to the same blog article, they expect 3D Live Collaboration becoming as mainstream feature as the video:
“… collaborating with classmates around the world while watching live 3-D video of a university lecture…”
“Imagine sitting in a rural health clinic, streaming three-dimensional medical imaging over the web and discussing a unique condition with a specialist in New York. Or downloading a high-definition, full-length feature film in less than five minutes.”
We at Altadyn, developers of 3DXplorer, the first and the only Browser-based plug-in-less 3D Live Collaboration platform for events, conferences, trades shows, meetings, virtual classrooms, are obviously looking forward to seeing faster networks for improved immersive experiences.
We love this type of initiatives.
