Google made the announcement via it’s blog on Wednesday (Feb 19), that they are currently exploring plans to lay down fiber optic cables in nine metro areas: Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, Phoenix, Portland, Raleigh-Durham, Salt Lake City, San Antonio and San Jose for Google Fiber super fast internet and television service.
Google Fiber delivers internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second, that’s approximately 100 times faster than most current high-speed Internet networks. Having internet speeds like this in your household would allow you to download an entire music album in under six seconds and a full-length movie in under 30 seconds, who would have even thought we would live to see this.
The super-fast internet service from Google Fiber was launched in Kansas City, Kan.; Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah. Unlike the service providers on the market, Google Fiber connects fiber optic cables directly to a home or office, allowing the user access ultra-fast internet and television service.
At up to 1,000 Mbps, Google Fiber is 100 times faster than today’s basic broadband, allowing you to get what you want instantaneously. You no longer have to wait on things buffering; everything will be ready to go when you are. So whether you are video chatting, uploading family videos, or playing your favorite online games, all you need to do is click and you’re there.
In the cities where the service is currently available, Google Fiber offer it’s Gigabit Internet service for $70 per month, Gigabit + TV for the price of $120 per month plus it also offers Free Internet at today’s basic speeds for $0 per month plus a $30 construction fee.
