Blast from the past: Google wants ‘dark fiber’
If Google were to build its own global or national fiber network, the project would likely cost billions of dollars and take years to implement, an investment that would be hard to justify based on the networking needs of most companies. Renting “lit” fiber from carriers is generally a cheaper, and therefore preferred, way to go. Google is thought to be a shrewd judge of computing value, having built its widely admired infrastructure on the back of low-budget server clusters. At the same time, curious geeks have long pondered the apparent mismatch between its service demands and the reputed scale of its computing resources.
What’s Google Doing With All That Dark Fiber?
Google head of special initiatives Eric Sacca has said the fiber helps Google avoid long-haul transport costs for traffic that needs to get to, say, peering points that connect to the AT&T network. Google also uses formerly dark fiber to interconnect its massive data centers and perform mundane tasks like replicating its search index to Google sites worldwide. One Google observer who has also worked with the company thinks the Official Story is also the most likely, since Google historically tries to build and operate its own, self-contained infrastructure.

Google, Facebook Want Better Developing Market Capacity
Google secret weapon that has not been activated
Despite its dark fiber that is very much in the world, according to inside information, google did not turn on the dark fiber. If Google activate it then Google will be able to monopolize all Internet traffic, even farther than that. With growing technology and bandwidth needs are greater then the Internet service provider (ISP) will struggle to meet the increasing demands of bandwidth.
For example, the current movie download site providers increasingly scattered on the internet, as well as streaming online television and video, and download songs / mp3.
To meet all these needs are clearly needed a massive increase in bandwidth. This can be done with the implementation of the Dark Fiber which has a speed of 8000 Gigabytes / hour.
When ISPs reach their capacity, they have no choice but to have recourse to Google. With dark fiber has, google will solve all the world is limited bandwidth.
In fact, Google would not only monopolize the Internet traffic, with dark fiber, then Google will be a telephone company, cable company, stereo systems and digital video recorder to house all of us. It is very possible. And Google will rule the world.
Then when google will activate its Dark Fiber? We will never know. So be prepared if one day our lives are associated with the technology will rely heavily on Google.
