MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., April 1, 2007 – Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG) today announced the launch of Google TiSP (BETA)™, a free in-home wireless broadband service that delivers online connectivity via users’ plumbing systems. The Toilet Internet Service Provider (TiSP) project is a self-installed, ad-supported online service that will be offered entirely free to any consumer with a WiFi-capable PC and a toilet connected to a local municipal sewage system.
«We’ve got that whole organizing-the-world’s-information thing more or less under control,» said Google Co-founder and President Larry Page, a longtime supporter of so-called «dark porcelain» research and development. «What’s interesting, though, is how many different modalities there are for actually getting that information to you – not to mention from you.»
For years, data carriers have confronted the «last hundred yards» problem for delivering data from local networks into individual homes. Now Google has successfully devised a «last hundred smelly yards» solution that takes advantage of preexisting plumbing and sewage systems and their related hydraulic data-transmission capabilities. «There’s actually a thriving little underground community that’s been studying this exact solution for a long time,» says Page. «And today our Toilet ISP team is pleased to be leading the way through the sewers, up out of your toilet and – splat – right onto your PC.»
