Can Google Make Money selling Broadband Access?

Google says its objective in building a symmetrical 1-Gbps fiber to home network in Kansas City, Kan., and then Kansas City, Mo. is a serious business initiative, “not a charity," says Kevin Lo, Google Access general manager.

"It’s not a nonprofit. It’s not a initiative,” said Lo. “We expect to make money at it. It’s a business we expect to be in.” Google’s high-speed gamble in KC

Perhaps the U.S. company whose commercial activities are most similar to Google Access is, an ISP that over time has concentrated mostly on broadband access as its business, though it now also sells voice services. Sonic 1-Gbps network
