Google offering 1 gigabyte/per second internet service in Kansas City

I was rather shocked to hear this. What amazing news:

Google is now offering internet service at a gigabyte per second, for $70 per month. Right now in Maine, Road Runner Turbo is 5 mbps, and it costs $55 a month. To say this is a stunning step forward in America’s high speed internet potential is an understatement. Depending on how quickly they expand, this will make instantaneous steaming of high quality video a complete reality.

Will we hit the maximum amount of bandwidth, if it exists? Time will tell.
