The state of Internet Connectivity in the US is not so good. While coverage is there, the prices are high. Internet Service Providers are offering slower speeds than the rest of the world, but at higher Prices.
Google looked to change that with Google Fiber, its own superfast Internet Service that offered much faster speeds than other Providers, except at cheaper Prices.
Google Fiber has been rolling out slowly, as Google lays down the infrastructure required for Fiber.
Now, Google has announced that Fiber is coming to four Metro Areas (Atlanta, Charlotte, Nashville, and Raleigh-Durham), sharing eighteen cities between them. Google claims Fiber is upto a hundred times faster than traditional Broadband, and it can revolutionize everything.
Indeed, the places where Fiber has been introduced, especially Kansas City, have become tech hubs, with many migrating over to these places for Fiber Access.
To refresh your memory, Google offers Fiber at $70 per month, and if you pay $300 upfront, you get 5Mbps Internet for free for seven years, which is a hell of a deal.
What do you think? Are you ready for Fiber?
