Google Fiber Gives You 1 Gbps Internet Speeds And A Free Nexus 7
Yesterday, Google have unveiled the details of their own high-speed internet service, dubbed Google Fiber. According to the search engine giant, their internet is 100 faster than the average speed of the current internet connections in US (the average is 5.8 Mbps).
Google Fiber comes with internet speeds of up to 1 Gbps and is advertised under the motto: “No more buffering. No more loading. No more waiting.” Google’s internet service also comes with special packages, one of them including free TV subscription.
The first Google Fiber connections were made in Kansas City, Kansas. The construction fee is $300, while the neighborhoods that have access to Google Fiber are called fiberhoods. The campaign is guided after the motto “Let’s do…” and so far we’ve had “Let’s do it Kansas City.” Of course, “Let’s do it Los Angeles,” “Let’s do it New York” or “Let’s do it Chicago” will soon follow, and, hopefully Google will start providing their lightning fast internet outside North America.
Google Fiber has three plans and pricings: a free plan, which promises download speeds of up to 5 Mbps. All you will pay for this service is the construction fee of $300 that is paid once.
The second plan is 1 Gbps, one year contract, and 1 TB of free Google Drive. Of course, you will have to pay the $300 construction fee plus $70 per month.
The third, and most interesting plan is Gigabit + TV. With a two-year contract and $120 per month you will get 1 Gbps internet speeds, full channel TV line-up, 1 TB storage box, 1 TB of Google Drive storage and a Nexus 7 tablet.
All three Google Fiber plans include an “Internet Box,” with four Gigabit ports and high-speed Wi-Fi.
