Ultra-fast Internet service could soon be a reality for Research Triangle Park in North Carolina. Tech giant Google has chosen Raleigh as one of 24 potential markets for its ultra-fast wireless Internet service.

Google has identified 24 locations in the U.S. for its Google fiber service. This list of lucky major cities includes Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City, San Antonio, San Jose and Kansas City.

Before Google fiber can be implemented, feasibility testing needs to be done.  Google has filed with the Federal Communications Commission to get approval for tests in up to 24 cities over a period of two years.

Why test?  Some cities may have inherent hindrances such as infrastructure, shallow bedrock and other terrain related issues and of course, good old red-tape and politics.

Why get Google fiber?  Well, Google Fiber delivers Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second. That make Google fiber about 100 times faster than most current high-speed Internet networks.

What does that mean?  Well, with Google Fiber, you could download your favorite music album in about five seconds or your favorite movie in about 35 seconds.

What does Google get out of all of this? Well, Google makes billions from its advertising-based business model. The faster the internet connection that customers have, the more money Google makes from selling advertising.

This will most certainly force cable operators to step up their game and boost data-transmission speeds and distribute new modems to customers.

Bottom line: People like fast internet service. People will certainly love ultra-fast internet service even more.

No brainer. 

"We are going to continue to work with them to make sure they understand the reality of the Internet.  A lot of these people don't have Ph.Ds, and they don't have a degree in computer science." -- RIM co-CEO Michael Lazaridis
