Google is not an ISP
Google is denying that it has been aiming at becoming an ISP. They are not planning on becoming an internet supplier outside of Mountain View and San Francisco. They are just planning for the future.
Wired mag asked Google about buying mobile dark fiber, only to find out that they were frustrated about the fact that “bozos in America aren’t rolling out IPv6^” so they will do it.
Google had hired Vint Cerf in 2005 in order to lead the IPv6 strategy, which will provide trillions more IP number combinations. The demand is heeded from the increasing demand for ip addresses from mobile devices such as handhelds, and phones. With the new IPv6 in place, the internet will be able to handle trillions of individual IP addresses.
