article:

Specifically,

"The Mountain View, Calif., company has been investing heavily in a
communications infrastructure, buying up dark fiber, or fiber-optic cable
that's already been laid but is not yet in use. In July, it also invested
in Current Communications, a company that provides technology for
delivering broadband Net access over power lines."
