Alphabet Links Homes To Internet

Alphabet chairman Eric Schmidt said he wants to beam high-speed Internet wirelessly to homes, using technology that is cheaper than laying cables.

At the company’s annual shareholder meeting, Schmidt tipped that improvements in computer chips and more accurate targeting of wireless signals have made “point-to-point” wireless connections “cheaper than digging up your garden”.

He said Alphabet executives increasingly believe that the technology can deliver Internet connections at 1 gigabit per second, equivalent to the speed its Google Fibre unit provides through fibre-optic cables in five US cities.
