A few months ago we heard rumours about Google’s plan to launch a TV or video service that would run on the Google Fiber that’s currently being installed in Kansas City. Now, Engadget has turned up more evidence that this might be the case at the US Federal Communications Commission.
The GFHD100 box, which just appeared in the FCC’s database comes with a Google Fiber sticker on it, and it looks similar to Verizon FiOS box with its Wi-Fi, IR, USB, Ethernet, HDMI input and output and Ethernet. Additional details are scant, but based on what we can see, it looks like the plans for Google Fiber are more ambitious than the company initially let on. Let’s hope so: I could use a gigabit-per-second fibre connection in my town ASAP. [FCC via Engadget]
