Google Fiber May Be Exploring Home Phone Business – STGIST

If you’re not familiar with Google Fiber, it’s a broadband service first launched in the Kansas metropolitan area, including Missouri’s largest city Kansas, in 2012.


Since its debut, it has become one of the most sought-after broadband services in the United States; and cities desire and request, sometimes beg for Google Fiber to come to their bailiwick — and the main reason of course is the service’s high-speed internet and competitive pricing.


Today, the Google Fiber service is available in three metropolitan or cities. In the coming months (or years depending on several circumstances), the service would expand to six additional cities and metros, including the city of Nashville, and Atlanta, Georgia.


Compared to Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and other key broadband players in the country, Google’s broadband service is considered by many as more affordable or the “bang for the buck.”


Google, the subsidiary of Alphabet Inc that focuses on search, mobile and internet services, is reportedly taking its Google Fiber service into a new territory, the telephony at .

A College of William and Mary international finance class inspired Kent Rollins ’18 to found Crisea, an online start-up that sells LED products at discount prices. While the company is based out of Rollins’ in Richmond, fellow students Daniel Hansen ’18, Tyler Treakle ’18, Neil McLean ’18, Kyle Perigard ’18 and John Murphy ’18 assisted in Crisea’s founding and help with its current operations.


Rollins said he realized that he could create a website to sell his products at a much lower cost than major corporations do because his company would not have the same overhead costs. He registered with the Virginia State Corporation Commission and the IRS, opened a separate bank account, and the company was born. Crisea is based out of Rollins’ home in Richmond because the College prohibits students from basing companies out of dorm rooms.


He looks for products that he thinks college kids would find cool and that are often expensive because they are rare in the United States. The company also saves on shipping by buying products in bundles.


“I was thinking about Crimea and I thought of Crisea (pronounced the same way) and it worked,” Hansen said. “We think 8 percent of our is from Russia because people mistype Crimea and end up on our website.”

Office or Home? Where Should You Run Your Business From?

Now that you’ve established the foundation of your business, it’s time to consider next steps, one of the most important being whether you should run your business from an office or from .


As a new business owner, choosing between getting cozy in a fresh and fancy workspace, and sticking with the comfort and convenience of your home, poses an array of questions that are worth some serious consideration. Yes, it’s a question of cost, but there’s more to it.


Obviously, if your day job keeps you in another office 40 hours a week, renting office space for your business probably doesn’t make sense. Starting a business while working another job to pay the bills is not uncommon – and it’s not impossible, either. But if you’re in this boat, your resources can be more effectively delegated than to an office space you won’t be able to be in a lot of the time.


What duties do you have? Think about both your new business and your life apart from it. Will having an office space help you stay organised as you navigate through the worlds of marketing and bookkeeping? Or do your other responsibilities make going to the office for hours at a time unrealistic? Be honest about your time and the daily tasks that consume it.


Congratulations! You’re a business owner, which means you should be congratulating yourself every day. Because you probably know by now that running a business takes a lot of grit.
