Google is really making its presence felt in the world of the internet. It’s not content not just being the top search engine in the world and having some of the most talked about services (Google Docs, Chrome, among others), it now wants to make its presence felt in terms of actual bandwidth.
The company has been talking with internet carriers regarding its proposal to develop a so-called fast lane for its own content. The proposal, called OpenEdge, will locate Google servers directly within the network of the service providers. Implementing this will make accessibility to Google’s services markedly faster. A number of providers are admittedly reluctant to follow Google’s proposal though as because the practice could run counter to network neutrality guidelines as given by the FCC.
