Using Google Fiber on PS4

24 replies 905 views Edited Mar 15, 2014




I have my own justifications for not using digital downloads for console games - and one of them is unless you have decently fast download speeds (or have Google Fiber) then its pointless in buying into digital distribution.

gratz on getting both systems! Google fiber is coming to my city, it can't get here fast enough Smiley Frustrated

Even with that I will go disk first when buying games


Getting Older doesn't mean it's GAME OVER
It's a better idea to buy games for your PS4
Than to buy a New Console for your PS4

I really wish this would be in my area. But who knows, it looks like it's growing fast.

Yep, might be coming to my city too according to the map. Anyway, that's pretty fast, but not as fast as I thought it would be.

Just to be clear, this is not my video.

I do not own both consoles either.... PS4 has my undivided attention until Xbone gets games worth the $500 buy-in.


I do not have Google Fiber. Its not available in my area.... but Austin is just a stones throw away from where I live, where they are bringing Fiber to. Which is where I'm planning on moving to in a couple years.


I just found this video browing the interwebz and thought you might like to see what FAST really is.

This country really needs a national internet strategy. It would take $11 billion to wire the nation for fiber. I say do it.

While I have nothing against your argument per se, I feel this is the right moment for me to gloat a little... Not having Google Fiber or perhaps even real fiber (or may be it is) but my university is swell! Smiley Tongue

 

SPEED!

I downloaded a 1 hour 1080p youtube clip (about 800 MB) in under 1 minute! Smiley Very Happy

 

Did I mention my Internet is free? Oh I didn't!? Smiley Tongue Well technically it is $20 per month, wow so costly! haha

 

Okay, I'll show myself out!
