Google CEO
"No. Once Alphabet hires a new CEO it'll be all systems go again for Google Fiber."

I don't think all of Google's problem will be solved by hiring a new CEO. If they don't hire the right CEO there problems will continue. In addition the new CEO may have their own plans for moving the company forward which may or may not include Google Fiber.

My City
Google Fiber was not slated for my city so I am not disappointed. I am excited about any company that will offer fiber to my city. I think Google took on more than they could handle with their fiber initiative. This happens when large companies have too many conflicting priorities. This also affects a company's reputation and brand image. It confuses consumers.

It is great to expand your services but you have to know when to stop and work to make sure the services you provide work effectively and generate a profit.

Google Failure
"Google Fiber continues to recruit communications technologists, according to a quick search of job openings on LinkedIn. But with no CEO, a fiber construction freeze and a much lower profile, has Google Fiber's charter changed?"

This is another example of a Google failure. Google Glass, Google Fiber.

I wonder why it's so hard for Google to find the right leadership to lead them in the right direction. It costs money to recoup from failures. However Google is a large company so they can recover quickly financially when they have failures.

Without a CEO that will cause delays in current projects and for future initiatives. Proper leadership is critical to the success of any business no matter what size.

Re: Meh
I fully expected Google to follow through in my city, and maybe it still will someday. So I was quite surprised to see the non-announcement that left my city off the roadmap for Google Fiber expansion. Google didn't really say it's never going to deploy here, but the progress has completely stalled-- and that can only mean that Google has shifted priorities.

Re: Meh
I can imagine your disappointment. I don't live anywhere near a Google Fiber city so there was never any real hope for my area. I hoped Google's fiber project would be longterm and countrywide, but that hasn't been the case. Were you surprised when the project slowed?

Re: Meh
> "I suspect many have given up on getting Google Fiber where they live..."

Very true. My city was even on Google Fiber's short list a few years.. and then the plans were basically shelved, which was very disappointing. Google hasn't had a great reputation for maintaining projects for the long-term that don't seem to be panning out in the short term. Projects get killed quickly.. and seemingly without much thought to the loyalty of users lost.

Meh
On a related note: I suspect many have given up on getting Google Fiber where they live. I know I have. I feel like they approached the whole thing with a great many plans only to find it's actually harder than they thought.

Re: Better dead herring than red herring?
..well, we need to make sure we maintain an "even Keel" and not be "blown away" by the stuff....the coverage over this stuff is hillarious (and tragic)..and the real things are not being talked about..simple things like say automation in the workplace...or simple things like people being hungry (without getting too overtly political of course).... :)

It's like childhood all over again. Russians are the bad guys on TV again.

 

So...the "dude in a t-shirt and jeans" costume will sell out fast with fake product descriptions.

Big Toronto-based cable, wireless and media company has started offering 1.5-Gig service as it deploys GPON-based fiber in 'strategic areas' and preps for DOCSIS 4.0 over its legacy HFC network.
Alaska operator says nearly 41% of its broadband subs are getting speeds of 1 Gbit/s, or four times the national adoption rate uncovered by a recent study from OpenVault.
A budget of $61 billion to $118 billion would enable the US to bring 1-Gig to all locations that get less than 100/20 Mbit/s service that aren't tied to RDOF phase I, ACA Connects/Cartesian study finds.
Satellite-powered broadband service provider is in talks with 'several' airlines about providing connectivity for in-flight W-Fi services.
As operators mull plans for future DOCSIS 4.0 deployments, many are considering expanding the upstream to 396MHz, a move that would deliver upstream speeds of about 3 Gbit/s, CommScope exec says.

Today’s access network architecture is under mounting pressure due to a continued surge in the number of connected devices, a proliferation of bandwidth-intensive customer applications and dramatic shifts in usage patterns related to the pandemic, such as work-from-home and e-learning.

Learn why now is the right time for cable operators to build greenfield networks or expand their existing networks with 10G PON, arming customers with high-speed symmetrical broadband. Gain a clear understanding of the drivers impacting the access network and the various approaches being considered to deliver higher speed services. Plus, find out the best practices that operators are employing as they leverage the latest in passive optical technology to future-proof their networks.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Node + 0 (Fiber Deep)
  • DOCSIS 3.1, DOCSIS 4.0 (FDX/ESD)
  • FTTP and 10G PON
  • XGS-PON, NG-PON2
  • Provisioning 10G PON within a DOCSIS B/OSS environment
