Is Google Planning To Fibre Britain?

Barence writes with this excerpt from PC Pro: “Google has emerged as a surprise contender to invest in Britain’s fibre broadband network. The search giant yesterday announced plans to build a gigabit fibre broadband network in the US. The test network will see Google deliver fibre-to-the-premises (FTTP) connections to up to half a million US homes. The move raises the possibility that Google is behind the Conservative Party’s ambitious plans to deliver nationwide 100Mbits/sec connections by 2017. Parliamentary sources have told PC Pro that the Tories’ plans were based on foreign investment in the UK broadband network.”
