Google Fiber offers homeowners and businesses cutting edge wifi technology, crystal clear HD channels, and unlimited nationwide calling.
The company offers straightforward pricing, with no annual contracts, no installation fees, or hidden fees.
Note: In December 2019, Google Fiber announced that it will no longer offer its linear, cable-esque television service for new customers. If you are looking for TV options, Google Fiber will direct you to other streaming services including YouTube TV and FuboTV.
Google Fiber offers the Fiber 100 + TV and the Fiber 1000 + TV. For someone who watches TV occasionally, the Fiber 100 + TV is going to be a good option. However, TV and movie buffs will want to get the Fiber 1000 + TV plan for the ultimate entertainment experience. Here are the specs for the two plans:
Fiber 100 +TV
Fiber 1000 + TV
If you get the Fiber 1000 + TV plan, you'll also get
For an additional cost, Google Fiber customers can add on premium and sports channels to their existing plan. This allows users to watch more movies, original series, sports, and Spanish programming.
Here's how much you'll have to pay for each premium package:
While many top cable providers lock new users in with a 24-month contract, Google Fiber extends no further than 12 months for any of its offerings. This gives the user more flexibility with the service in the event of moving or changing subscriptions.
You will not be under the same fee obligations that other cable providers place under you because of this.
Many consumers praise Google Fiber’s customer service. The company boasts having a friendly and knowledgeable staff to help answer any questions that may arise. The company also strives to have exact-time service appointments — so you aren't waiting hours for someone to come to your house.
Google Fiber knows how essential internet access for families is. It can help people take advantages of resources, help students finish their homework, and get kids involved in STEM classes. That's why the company has partnered with ConnectHome — an initiative by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and the White House — to help bring a faster, more reliable internet service, to families in public housing. Housing authorities and residents will receive this service for free.
Google Fiber began as an experiment and then formed into a company, so the locations across the United States are limited. The cities in which Google Fiber is offered are:
These cities are being dubbed as "Fiber Cities," and city officials are working to bring the world's fastest service to more cities. It may be a couple of years before it reaches your city. This is due to the fact they have to run fiber optic cables through the city to bring the service to a new location. The installation process of installing a network can be time-consuming.
Depending on where you live will also affect the number of channels and which channels you get with Google Fiber TV. Check the company website to see what channels are available in your area.
If you plan on using the internet at the same time as watching Google Fiber TV, the internet speed may be affected.
The company explains, "Google Fiber's Internet and TV service offerings share capacity on the connections to subscribers' premises. To provide customers with a consistently high-quality video service, the capacity available for the Google Fiber Internet service may be reduced if subscribers are utilizing Google Fiber TV services and, in particular, if subscribers are watching or recording multiple Google Fiber TV streams simultaneously."
