Google Fiber is a unique internet service. Not only is it from a provider most people know for their search engine and online services, but because they only have one plan to offer residents. Granted, Google Fiber’s one internet plan, a fiber gigabit plan, is one of the best available fiber internet plans available.
Google Fiber Pros and Cons
- Low-priced fiber internet
- No data caps, no contracts
- Rated #1 provider by customers
- Limited number of plans
- Only available in some major cities
When it comes to deciding whether you should choose Google Fiber over another provider, there are a few things to consider:
- Google Fiber does not charge an installation or equipment fee. Installation is free for most customers along with the equipment required for your service, i.e. a router, fiber jack, or network box.
- Google Fiber internet is contract- and data cap-free. You are not required to sign a contract for Google Fiber’s internet service. That means you can cancel your service at any time without paying an early termination fee (ETF). You also don’t have to worry about Google throttling your speeds if you use a certain amount of data.
- You can get Google Wi-Fi for free with Google Fiber. Google Wi-Fi is a smart, mesh Wi-Fi system that can blanket your home with a strong Wi-Fi connection.
Google Fiber Overview
Google Fiber has provided fiber internet service since 2010; however, they’ve laid low in recent years as they’ve simplified their plans and services. Google Fiber uses Fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) technology which gives you the fastest download and upload speeds available, up to 1,000 Mbps. Google Fiber recently announced their 2 Gig (2,000 Mbps) plan, which will be available in most cities Google Fiber services in early 2021.
While Google Fiber’s expansion project stopped in 2016, they still are one of the lowest-priced fiber internet providers. Customers consistently rate Google Fiber as one of the best internet providers for their speed, prices, and customer service.
Those in major cities are more likely to have access to Google Fiber as their availability is limited. No matter where you live, Google Fiber’s prices remain the same unlike Xfinity’s or Spectrum’s. With that said, Google Fiber doesn’t offer many deals—there’s only one plan, which is a deal itself since it’s one of the lowest-priced, contract-free, unlimited fiber internet plans. Below, we’ll go into detail about Google Fiber’s prices, installation, equipment, and data cap.
How much is Google Fiber internet a month?
Google Fiber internet is only $70 a month. Unlike most fiber internet providers, Google Fiber will not charge you a monthly equipment fee or an upfront installation fee. It is possible that you may be required to pay a small deposit for the equipment. Google Fiber will give you a credit on your first month’s bill for the deposit if you’re required to pay one.
If you’re looking for a bundle plan, Google Fiber offers phone service for an additional $10 per month. Google Fiber no longer offers a TV service themselves, but TV fans can turn to Google’s streaming TV service, YouTube TV. While there isn’t a bundle discount for getting Youtube TV, you will have access to 85+ live channels.
How much does it cost to install Google Fiber?
Google Fiber installation is free. Some customers may get charged a $300 construction fee, but this information will be disclosed before you sign up for their service. If you do have to pay a construction fee, you can choose to pay it monthly for $25 a month for 12 months.
Does Google Fiber have unlimited data?
You don’t have to worry about data caps or monitor your internet usage with Google Fiber. They do not have a hard or soft data cap on their plan. A ‘soft data cap’ allows internet providers to slow down or throttle your internet speed after you use a certain amount of data.
Google Fiber Equipment Options
A Google Fiber installation technician will install a Fiber Jack, an Optical Network Terminal (ONT), in your home and give you up to two Google WiFi access points for free with your plan. The Fiber Jack converts the fiber-optic signal into internet and acts as a router for your home while the Google WiFi access points extend your wifi signal up to 1,700 sq. ft. per access point. If you want, you can use your own router. Either way, you’ll still have the Fiber Jack and access point(s) Google Fiber will provide you. You can use that to your advantage if you have a large home or want to extend your wifi to your garage or backyard. Connect your router to the Fiber Jack via an ethernet cord and use Google Fiber’s provided access points as wifi extenders to blanket your entire home with a strong wifi connection.
