Google Fiber and Local Telecom Markets

Nathan Newman: Will Google Fiber Convulse Local Telecom Markets?: "Will Google Take on the Telecom Industry? This may be just a one-off move by the company to collect a whole new kind of marketing data to assist its online advertising algorithms across the country, while reaping some good public relations. But it could be just a test for going big into a whole set of fiber markets around the country. In other sectors, Google has shown a desire to move from providing the content to controlling the underlying infrastructure.  Originally, few people expected Google to move into mobile phones in direct competition with its one-time corporate ally Apple, but it first created the Android mobile operating system, then more recently purchased Motorola to begin itself manufacturing its own phones. Without abandoning all alliances, the company shows a strong desire to control end-to-end environments for online commerce and advertising."
