Google Selects To Run Stanford Fiber To Home Project. will run #Stanford #Fiber project for Google
For a few year, from 2004 to 2007, I had the pleasure of using DSL services in San Francisco. We ran most of our basic services like DNS, VoIP Routing and simple web sites on that network. For all the years, we had the service, perhaps twice the service went down and on of them due to AT&T.
So I was glad to see that they will be running the Google's Stanford fiber project (Providing fiber to home for all the Stanford faculty and staff living in homes on the campus.) Stanford is the Alma Mater of Google founders and the initial Google actually ran on the Stanford network
This is different from the Google fiber to home project that Google will run for different communities it selects based on various criteria. Still this will be a trial project to learn about fiber construction and operation methods.
“ is an innovative ISP that brings top notch experience to the Google Fiber for Communities project,” said James Kelly, Google Fiber for Communities product manager. “Their open access experience and well regarded customer service team will play a key role as we kick off our beta network at Stanford.”

We are very excited to have the opportunity to work with Google on this project,” said Dane Jasper, CEO & Co-Founder of “It’s a great fit for our existing capabilities, and will help us develop new skills as we move our own network toward fiber.
The project will start in early 2011. via @googlers
