Google Chairman Eric Schmidt has spoken about the company's fiber broadband business at The New York Times Dealbook Conference. He insists that it is, in fact, a business, not "just an experiment." He went on to note that the company is simply attempting to decide where to go next.

The expansion of the Fiber service will also see significant, if undetailed support from the FCC under its "100 squared initiative." The only question, like Mr. Schmidt explained is, where to next?
