Ahh, the thrilling spy games of giant tech and media companies!
It seems not everyone is excited about the prospect of Google Fiber, the Gigabit fiber network being rolled out in Kansas City as an experiment in ultra fast Internet. According to GigaOM, Time Warner Cable is promising its Kansas City employees $50 to spy on Google, to "share tips, rumors and rumblings about Google construction or launch activity."
Google hopes to provide the city with a 1Gbs network, promising speeds 100 times faster than current broadband access. Will Time Warner learn anything that can help their business? If they're as terrible at spying as they are as they apparently are at providing cable service, Google should have no problems.
