Default YESSSSSSSSS

I just left work and came home to see this on Channel 2 news.



https://fiber.google.com/cities/atlanta/home/

Sandy Springs and Brookhaven already have it, I don't know why they're still red on the map. I guess they haven't finished construction over the entire cities.

Any fellow Atlanta members here?

There are a few cities that have been listed as "potential" for a while now... I'm surprised Atlanta was the first of them to come out of that stage.

YouTube is littered with people putting up videos of them saying, "Why am I only downloading at 5MB/s from x website?!" :facepalm:

It's nice to know that I could have multiple friends streaming Destiny (or whatever) at 6,000-12,500Kbps and not even come close to struggling.

No way, that's crazy. Technically, their service is still in "beta," so it makes sense that they would choose a smaller city. I don't even remotely know the specifications, but I would think the amount of area they covered in Atlanta would be bigger than Pheonix. No idea, man.

I'm not too familiar with fiber. Say I average 45-70 ping on servers around the Midwest. If I had fiber would my ping be like ~10 on those same servers?

Ping is impacted by so many factors and variables, you can't really just put a number on it. Of course you would (and should) expect it to be lower than your current connection.

Unfortunately, however, most people won't notice any sort of monumental increase in productivity.

On the other hand, my dad has a 6Mb/s DSL connection shared across an Xbox One, an Apple TV, an iPad, four iPhone 6's, two Macbook Pros, and the neighbors are piggybacking but most likely only checking their email a couple times a day. Everyone in his house would most definitely see a significant "quality-of-life" upgrade.
