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.
