What Is Google Up To? Google Net Perhaps?


[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: Google Rumors)

(New York Post) Google's move to lease a huge space in Chelsea is part of the technology giant's plan to build its own fiber optic network and become a bigger player in the booming Internet telephone and wireless businesses.

The company is reportedly in talks to lease a whopping 270,000 square feet in the former Port Authority Commerce Building at 111 Eighth Ave. at W. 15th Street.

This building is viewed by many as one of the most important "telecom carrier hotels" in New York City. The former Port Authority Commerce Building houses thousands of web servers and coupled with Google's rapid buy out of "dark fiber" (unused fiber optic cable left over from the telecom bust) one probably suspects that Google is either acquiring the dark fiber for their Google Talk or perhaps (as rumor goes) building a "Google Net."

(New York Post) In a tantalizing hint at its plans for the future, the company has posted a job opening for a "Strategic Negotiator, Global Infrastructure," who will be charged with "identification, selection, and negotiation of dark fiber contracts both in metropolitan areas and over long distances as part of development of a global backbone network."

"If Google owned the backbone, it could provide optimal data paths for its voice and data customers," said Rob Enderle of technology consulting firm The Enderle Group. "It would give Google a sustainable advantage."

Although Google is keeping its lips sealed about its next adventure, one avenue of thought is that they may be launching some kind of free Wifi internet service (funded by Ad Sense of coarse) or VoIP system in order to compete with Ebay's Skype. What ever the case may be, Google is drawing a lot of attention, stirring up the imagination of geeks around the blogosphere.
