Be sure your equipment at home is good enough to handle the speeds. You will soon find yourself buying extra goodies to connect into the fiber goodness I suspect. :)

I am pretty happy with my 30meg speed here. Not to say though that if Google fibered my town (which already has a major fiber infrastructure), I wouldn't be one of the first people to go get myself hooked up too.

Nice, hope you enjoy your speeds.

Pro tip: remove the plastic wrap and you'll gain 200 extra internet down loads.

I have 120Mbit connection here. Sadly Im limited to 94Mbit since my router is only 100Mbit on the WAN port, but even so, I sometimes struggle with harddisk speeds when downloading multiple things and unpacking etc. You probably want to download and install things from different drives depending on what you're using it for :)

What I found surprising is there is only a single fiber optic cable, and normally you see two for dedicated TX and RX. Do you guys think google is half assing it by using a single fiber? Supposedly the TV and 1gbps internet runs simultaneously through it.

Lol, I plan to. The Google guy left it on and I took a picture right away I was so excited about it.

The main computer is an 3rd gen core Intel Xeon on a S1200BTLR with dual intel gigabit adapters, SATA3 Intel 520 SSDs, 12GB DDR3 1600. I also have a 1st gen core with two Intel Xeons on a S5520 with the same dual intel gigabit adapters and good storage. Going to be running my survival minecraft server on it and maybe a few extras like tekkit and creative. We've been stuck on 10mbps uplink for 2 years so I moved to Kansas City to get us gigabit.

You're probably going to get SFP/+ connection from the Google Fiber outlet. These are rated at 10GbE, and are usually braided and/or warped in thicker plastic. They tend to be sort but won't be damaged as easy.

The Google guy gave me a little piece of it he had cut off while crimping the end. Here is a photo.

Very thin, like a human hair.
