Google Fiber rolls out new 5 gig plan according to reports. The 5Gbps plan is priced lower than many major providers out there but it is available at the moment in select locations.
Google Fiber Rolls Out New 5 Gig Plan According To Reports
Google fiber has now joined the increasing number of 5Gbps internet service providers on Tuesday, releasing its very own 5 gig plan as per a Valentine’s Day post from the fiber internet provider. The plan in question offers symmetrical speeds in regards to uploads and downloads of up to 5Gbps, or 5,000Mbps for the industry-low price of $215 monthly.
This Is the Cheapest 5Gbps Plan from Any Major Provider
This is however the cheapest I have seen for 5Gbps from any major provider. For instance, similar speeds from AT&T, Frontier, or Ziply Fiber start at $180, $165, and $300 every month respectively. The plan as you should know also comes with two mesh Wi-Fi extenders, unlimited data as well as no contract requirements. Professional installation is also included in the plan.
And with that being said, Google Fiber’s 5 gig plan is undoubtedly the best internet deal you will find out there if eventually, it is available in your area. The plan at the moment is offered only in Kansas City, Kansas, all Utah locations that are serviceable for Google Fiber, as well as the newest locations of the provider, West Des Moines, Iowa.
When Will the Service Roll Out To Other Parts and Regions?
It is still unclear as to when users in other locations can expect to be able to sign up for the new 5 gig plan, but the post however from Google Fiber clearly says that the service will be rolling out in other cities in the later parts of this year. A spokesperson from Google Fiber confirmed with CNT that testing in other cities will begin shortly and that the service is planned for rollout later in the year.
