Washington: Google has unveiled a new Internet service that is 100 times faster than the average ISP connection currently available, enabling users to download high-def feature films in under a minute.

Google Fiber may banish buffering if it travels as quickly as reports claim. The blue streak enables users to download high-definition feature-length films in under a minute.

According to the New York Daily News, Google Fiber is only available in the Kansas City area, where a fiber optic cable network has been set up like telephone lines.

Along with the apparent speed, Google Fiber is relatively affordable. A subscription is only USD 70 per month.

Subscribers receive a complimentary Nexus 7 tablet, which doubles as the television's remote control, the report said.

Certain features are reportedly missing at this early stage, such as YouTube integration or HBO, but overall Google Fiber offers such a convenient entertainment experience that it could revolutionise the industry, the report added.
