The future of fiber optic infrastructure is looking promising, but there’s one problem: It doesn’t work well.
The technology is supposed to let you upload files to the Internet faster, but it can’t keep up with the speeds of today’s connected devices.
That’s not good enough, and it’s one of the reasons that Google Fiber plans to build a fiber optic network in Kansas City, Missouri.
The company has already signed up tens of thousands of homes for Fiber to the Home, but they have yet to see significant success.
A lot of the problems that Fiber’s network faced have been solved, but some still need to be worked out.
We’ve already been able to upload and download data at speeds of up to 50Mbps, but that’s still not enough to keep up the pace of new applications and services.
Google Fiber has been trying to figure out how to make fiber-optic networks work at the speeds it claims.
Google Fiber CEO, John Legere, told Business Insider that Fiber could solve some of those issues by building a network that can deliver speeds of 100Mbps or even 1Gbps.
Google has been working on a new fiber-coaxial cable called Fiber Optics 2.0 for several years, and Legeres claims that Fiber Optix 2.1, the first fiber-based network, will be the first to reach that speed.
According to the FCC, Fiber OptiFi 2.2 will be able to reach speeds of 1G, and Fiber Optica 3.0 will offer speeds of 10Gbps, but those speeds will likely only be achievable at speeds greater than 10Mbps.
Google says it plans to launch a new cable-based service, Fiber One, to reach those speeds.
Fiber Opticus is also working on Fiber Optical 2.3, which will offer up to 10Gbs, and we’ve heard rumors that Fiber is planning to launch Fiber One 2.4 and Fiber One 3.5 by the end of 2019.
Google also says it’s working on fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) service, which promises speeds of 50Mbps or more.
Google’s plan isn’t exactly a sure thing, but its progress in the field shows that fiber optics are moving forward at a steady pace.
Google hasn’t released a timetable for when Fiber will roll out Fiber Optimedia or Fiber One to customers, but Google Fiber says it’ll be rolling out FTTH service by the summer of 2019, and that’s when Fiber should start to see real benefits.
