Submission + - Google Fiber rolls out synchronous gigabit broadband 2

droopus writes: I had to read this a few times before I discovered it was not a misprint. Google Fiber has arrived in Kansas City, promising, get this...synchronous 1000Mbit to the home. Google says there will be no monthly bandwidth caps, and no overages. It even comes with 1TB of cloud storage through Google Drive.

I personally use Optimum Ultra and thought I was hot with 100/15. When Fios started offering 300Mbit downstream I thought that was crazy fast but gigabit both ways?

Now here's my question: other than running HD streams to a dozen 60" monitors, what could a single user possible do with gigabit Internet?
