‘Google Fiber’ Appears on TV Box Application at U.S. FCC

June 5 (Bloomberg) -- A digital-equipment maker has applied for U.S. regulatory clearance for a device labeled “Google fiber” that’s described in filings as a set-top box for video service.

Humax Co. Ltd., based in Gyeonggi, South Korea, submitted diagrams and a request for confidentiality to the Federal Communications Commission today, according to the agency’s website.

Google is building a high-speed data network in Kansas City, Missouri, and Kansas City, Kansas. The company is readying a pay-TV service there that would compete with Time-Warner Cable Inc., according to a February report in the New York Post.

“We’re still exploring what product offerings will be available when we launch Google Fiber in Kansas City and we have nothing to announce at this time,” Jenna Wandres, a Google spokeswoman, said in an e-mail today.
