Default Google ISP?

It is a possibility.

People have wondered for years what Google might be up to with all that dark fiber it had bought up around the country. Now, we may have an answer: deliver open access fiber-to-the-home Internet access at speeds of 1Gbps. That's right: 1Gbps.

Google has just announced a trial run of its new scheme, and it's asking city, county, or state officials to let it know if they're interested in a pilot project. In its initial phase, the fiber optic network will serve anywhere from 50,000 to 500,000 people

$500 a month would be a great deal for 1Gbps CIR. I would start a small neighborhood ISP, or setup a few racks in my garage & start renting colo.
