Google Details High Speed Internet Pricing

Category: Internet
Posted: 07:17AM

Google first announced its plans to develop a high speed fiber Internet service in February 2010 and Kansas City was chosen as the lucky city to get the service first. There will be 180 areas of the city that receive the service starting in October 2012 and finishing in Fall 2013. Google has now detailed the pricing scheme for the service which has three plans, all of which are better than nearly all plans currently offered in the United States in price, speed, or both. The base plan costs only the $300 install fee and includes seven years of Internet connectivity at speeds of 5Mb/s download and 1Mb/s upload. The second tier features one gigabit upload and download speeds for only $70 per month, which at one third the price of the Verizon FiOS plan that offers 300/65 speeds makes me very sad. The highest tier adds the Google TV service to the blazing fast Internet for $120 per month. The installation fee is waived on the mid and high tier plans.
