Google Fiber is Pressuring Rivals to Up Their Game

Maybe the very best feature of Google Fiber will prove to be that it really grabs the attention of other Internet Service Providers. All of this intimidation is causing the companies to run just a little scared and provoking them to get off of their dead آ….er uh centers to increase their own speeds to remain competitive even before Google sets a foot into town.

Akamai’s data shows that in the fourth quarter of 2012, average Internet speeds in Kansas climbed faster than any other state in America. Average speeds in the midwestern state grew by 86% compared to Q4 2011.
