Google Fiber launched in Kansas City(ies)


Kansas City might just be the luckiest city in the world because it seems that it is the first city to ever get a service by Google called the Google Fiber. We are talking about an internet connection through fiber optics along with a TV service with DVR capability. In fact, since it comes with a storage box, you are looking at 2TB worth of recorded data as well. Netflix and YouTube are just some of the many services that you can get through the Fiber TV.

As far as the hardware is concerned, Google Fiber comes with a DVR, WiFi access point, a four-port Ethernet router, as well as the Nexus 7 tablet as a remote. The service also comes with 1TB worth of cloud storage through the Google Drive. A construction fee of $300 (initially waived) is also charged to those that are interested on getting Google Fiber to their houses.

The monthly price of Google Fiber is at $120 including TV but if you decide to opt without TV, then you are looking at $70 per month for an unlimited gigabit upload/download internet. You are also hooked on a year contract but with an internet that fast, we don’t think that you would mind it either. As of date, Google Fiber is available only at Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO. Hopefully, it will be available throughout the nation as well.
