April 05, 2020

Making its debut in 2010, Google Fiber provides high-speed-connectivity through fiber service to individuals and businesses. This service may be limited due to availability, as well as the fact that the Google Fiber price is higher than other internet options. Currently, Google Fiber is available in 13 states and 18 cities across the United States. Also called gigabit internet, Google Fiber promises gigabit-speed internet, unlimited data and customer service that cares. 

Google Fiber at-a-glance

Google Fiber uses fiber-optic cables to transmit information using light, which results in one of the highest speed broadband internet options available on the market today. With download speeds of up to 1,000 Mbps per second and unlimited cloud storage, Google Fiber means fast web-browsing speeds and the ability to upload large videos and other files quickly. Download speeds of 1,000 Mbps or 1 GB per second translate to the ability to download 30 songs every second.

Google Fiber data caps

Unlike many internet providers, Google Fiber’s packages come standard with no data caps. A data cap is the amount of data your provider has allotted you to use within a certain period of time. Though everything you do on the internet uses data, some things, like live streaming or gaming, use more data than other things like web browsing. Google Fiber’s unlimited data gives customers the flexibility of using the internet however, often they need and for whatever they need, if appropriate speeds are available, without the worry of data overages.  

Google Fiber availability

Currently, Google Fiber is available in 19 areas around the country. To find out if Google Fiber is available in your area, check the coverage for your zip code.

Google Fiber customer satisfaction ratings

Though Google, LLC has earned an A- rating through the Better Business Bureau, (BBB) Google Fiber is not rated separately. On ConsumerAffairs, Google Fiber gets a two out of five stars rating based on customer reviews. Many of the negative reviews are associated with incongruency between the speeds customers thought they would get and the speeds they actually get with Google Fiber. It is important to note that Google does not promise 1,000 Mbps with fiber, but states you may receive up to 1,000 Mbps, depending on your location.
