Google Fiber in Charlotte

Google Fiber is sending me a free t-shirt.

Google Fiber is Coming t-shirt

Got an email from our benevolent internet overlords with an offer for a free t-shirt, just click here. Google Fiber is about to be sprung in Charlotte, and it looks like I’m on the list of planned installs.

Here I am in the last stages of selling my house in Charlotte, and Google Fiber is coming to my neighborhood. All these years having to endure mediocre speeds from Time Warner Cable, and now when I’ll be able to get decent upload speeds to feed my websites, we’re loading the moving truck instead.

What can one do with 1,000 Mbps download and upload speeds? A heck of a lot, I can actually take advantage of cloud storage, and feed more content up to my websites. At my current upload speed of 5 Mbps, uploading Gigabytes of backup data is an all night cron job, so I opt for external USB drives.

Maybe I can get Google Fiber to come to Florida next ;)

No more speed, I’m almost there
Gotta keep cool now, gotta take care
