San Jose Mercury News is reporting Google is courting the city of San Jose to receive its Google Fiber services along with 33 other cities. For those who do not know what Google Fiber is, in a nutshell, it’s supersonic internet. With speeds up to 1000mbps it pretty much blows your current ISP speeds out of the water. Hopefully these 34 cities are not a stopping point for the service, there are many more people who love to get this kind of speed.
