Alphabet, Googles parent company, has a project that is aimed at wireless high speed internet access.
According to Chairman Eric Schmidt at the annual shareholder meeting it’s cheaper and today’s technology makes it viable. Improved computer chips and accurate “targeting of wireless signals,” could allow the company to transmit internet connections at a gigabit per second. More popularly Googles Google Fiber promised gigabit speeds with its fiber-optic network.
The technology is reportedly being tested in Kansas City, which was also used to test Google Fiber. If Alphabet figures out how to make the technology work, they could effectively cut down the timeline for gigabit internet speeds that it boasted through Google Fiber.
