Google to deploy fiber to 50,000-500,000 U.S. households

Google has just announced plans to deploy insanely fast broadband to between 50,000 and 500,000 households in the U.S. They say they're going to offer the service at "competitive prices". It doesn't mean they're going into the business as an ISP per se (even though 500,000 households is not exactly a tiny number), but they're mainly going to use it as a large-scale connectivity experiment.

They are taking applications right now, and you can nominate your own community. See the video after the jump.
