Meanwhile, the hardest-working telecom commentator in America is still going strong.

Kagan, we wrote, "has that rare and beautiful quality reporters treasure: He returns your call promptly, and he gives you a quotable comment you can drop in your story when you are minutes away from deadline. He's what we like to call the quote-a-matic of telecom reporting." TheStreet.com

ANALYSIS

The Ultra High-Speed Internet Race Is On

By Jeff Kagan

E-Commerce Times

04/17/14 12:07 PM PT

We are in the very early stages of an ultra high-speed Internet revolution that will benefit everyone: carriers, cities, companies and customers. Cities want it because they see it as a way to attract companies. That means they increase their tax base and have a strong growth economy. Companies want it because they see this as a competitive advantage, at least for a while, until everyone has it.

 

Want to watch a new tech race? Keep your eyes on the new 1 Gbps ultra high-speed Internet race. Over the next few years, this will continue to grow and become one of the hottest races around. So who will the leaders be? Today, entrants like Google, AT&T, C Spire and CenturyLink already have started their race for the gold.

First, it's important to understand this race, so let's pull back the camera. We can see that this race actually has been running for quite a long while. It is not new. Every year, local telephone companies like AT&T, Verizon and CenturyLink continue to increase Internet speeds. So do cable television companies like Comcast, Time Warner Cable and Cox.

However, as fast as these speeds are -- and they are extremely fast -- Google wanted more. Google pointed to other countries where Internet speeds were even faster. Google wanted to speed up the process. So in typical Google fashion, it entered the race in Kansas City with its 1 Gbps service and challenged the existing providers.

Jeff Kagan: Why Did Google Disappoint and What’s Next?

By Jeff Kagan  

April 17, 2014 2:35PM   

Tickers Mentioned: GOOG  AMZN  FB  T  VZ

We knew it had to happen. Google Inc. ($GOOG), one of the tech industry’s largest and fastest growing companies, missed Wall Street expectations. So what went wrong? And should we expect more disappointments, or is this just an occasional blip on the long-term radar? These are important questions whether you are an investor, worker, or partner with Google.

You notice I didn’t mention customers. That’s because customers continue to be blown away by the tech giant. Users and customers still love Google. However, this miss could make others queasy.

To answer the question quickly, let me start by saying I don’t worry about Google. Not yet anyway. I simply see nothing wrong that hasn’t been there for a long time. They are still a rapidly growing company that is changing industry after industry.

Google is not like other companies. Google does not just have one target product or one target audience. They may have started out as a search engine, but Google is so much more than that today. They ride multiple waves.
