Google is not satisfied with 1Gbps and is relaunching, doubling the speed of its fiber optic service available in some US cities. From 2012 to today, many things have changed, from the demand – increasingly demanding and hungry for gigabytes – to the technology itself, and the tests that the Mountain View company is preparing to launch are moving precisely in this direction.
"Fast is never fast enough", says Big G in the press release signed by Amalia O'Sullivan (Director of Product Management) that kicks off the test program. The pandemic has led the population to seek increasingly efficient and fast connections, also capable – and above all – of support (and support) – more devices connected to the network at the same time. Here is the new proposal from Google Fiber, which combines 2Gbps with greater stability and bandwidth to meet all needs.
And it is the "unprecedented question"created in recent months, fueled by work and study at a distance and by the increased time spent at home to protect themselves from the virus, which accelerated the transition from 1Gbps to 2Gbps optical fiber. The offer includes:
- download speed up to 2Gbps
- upload speed up to 1Gbps
- WiFi 6 router with mesh extender
- no annual contract
- free installation
- dedicated assistance
- $ 100 per month, $ 30 more than the 1Gbps offer
The offering will be tested from October initially in the cities of Nashville and Huntsville, with other cities already covered by Google Fiber to follow. The commercial launch in the first cities is expected by the end of the year, to then reach all the Google Fiber and Google Fiber Webpass locations at the beginning of 2021.
