Google Fiber Wants To Beam Wireless Internet To Your Home

The company is reportedly working on connecting wireless towers to existing fiber lines and experimenting with a number of different wireless technologies to make this happen.

If Google can figure out how to make the technology work, that would reverberate across the broadband industry, since it would solve the expensive "last mile" problem that broadband companies usually tackle by stringing a web of wires directly into homes. And solving that problem would be a big deal, because it would give Google’s parent, Alphabet, which runs Fiber, a plausible path to build out a nationwide network that could go head to head with broadband incumbents like AT&T, Verizon, Charter and Comcast.
