Beaming High-Speed Internet To Homes Directly

Alphabet Explores Beaming High-Speed Internet into Homes

Wireless connections would be as fast as fiber-optic cables, without the expense

Google parent Alphabet Inc. wants to beam high-speed internet wirelessly to homes, using technology that it says is cheaper than laying cables.
Alphabet ... Chairman Eric Schmidt said at the company’s annual shareholder meeting Wednesday that improvements in computer chips and more accurate targeting of wireless signals have made “point-to-point” wireless internet connections “cheaper than digging up your garden.” Schmidt said Alphabet executives increasingly think the technology can deliver internet connections at 1 gigabit per second, equivalent to the speed its Google Fiber unit provides through fiber-optic cables in five U.S. cities.
