1GB+ throughput speeds everywhere(i.e. for Wifi and secondary Google TV boxes)
Both the secondary Google TV boxes and the wifi throughput speed from the Google Fiber router needs to be 1GB plus. In fact it would be nice if the secondary TV boxes also functioned as meshed Google Wifi hotspots(e.g. https://store.google.com/product/google_wifi)
Most people are going to use wifi instead of a hardwired connection. So the wifi speeds need to be 1GB plus also(or close to it due to overhead). People have the option purchase USB 1GB wifi NICs nowadays. Thus, Google Fiber just needs to offer a router/set top box device that supports 1GB throughput wifi speeds. Additionally, that box should also include wifi mesh technology which essentially allows for greater wifi coverage/range.
Alternatively, permit folks to use the Google router in bridge mode and setup their on mesh, 1GB wfi router, if that's the best Google Fiber can do for now.

Just modem mode/ bridged mode for those of us wanting to run aftermarket routers...im constantly rinning into NAT issues with my netduma R1gaming router due to it seeing the GFR as another router versus a modem...We need MODEM MODE...plz

A new 802.11 AC Wave 2 box is in the works. That said, you would need 802.11 AC wave 2 clients, which are almost non-existent. I don't know if the new 4K TV boxes (which are also in the works) will have wave 2 radios, but meshing wouldn't definitely be great.
