Google already provides many of us with email addresses and phone numbers, but are you ready for Google to become your ISP? If the new Google ultra high speed Internet connection trial goes well, you might be able to enjoy 1 GB per second Internet connections to your home and all at what they are calling competitive rates. To put the speed in perspective, 1 GB per second is roughly 100 times faster than most home connections available today.
