Google’s high-speed internet service Google Fiber will start testing the 2-gigabit internet service as of next month. The company plans to offer 2 Gbps internet speed to all users in early 2021.
Google, one of the largest technology giants in the world, offers consumers a gigabit level internet service called Google Fiber as well as many other services. More importantly, with the announcement made today, Google announced that it will soon start offering 2-gigabit internet with Google Fiber.
According to the statements made by Google, Google Fiber’s 2 gigabit plan will offer its subscribers a download speed of up to 2 Gbps and upload speeds of up to 1 Gbps. Google will also provide an unspecified Wi-Fi 6 modem for those who switch to the 2 gigabit internet plan, and will allow users to connect more devices to the same network with 30 percent faster internet.
2 Gbps internet with Google Fiber will be $100
Google Fiber does not stipulate conditions such as any internet quota or annual commitment to users in the new 2-gigabit plan, as in the current gigabit plan. Moreover; Google Fiber 2 gigabit will have a monthly subscription fee of $100, which is only 30 percent higher than the current Google Fiber gigabit plan.
Google Fiber 2 gigabit will be accessible to all users from the beginning of 2021
Google will begin testing the 2-gigabit internet plan in Nashville and Huntsville, the US, starting next month. After the testing process, all users in these two cities will be able to start using 2-gigabit internet later this year. Tests in 19 other cities served by Google Fiber will begin this fall, and all users in these cities will be able to use 2-gigabit internet from the beginning of 2021.
