It’s official, Google Fiber arrives in Los Angeles and Chicago. The two cities will soon benefit of the incredibly fast Google Fiber speed, as well as other advantages that come with it.
Google has recently announced it is seriously thinking of introducing its super-fast Google Fiber Internet in two of the largest cities in U.S., namely, Chicago and Los Angeles. While the initiative is still in its incipient phase, the tech developer thinks bringing 1 gigabit-speed Internet in the region could be of great use to companies.
There is no need to go through a Google Fiber speed test as facts speak for themselves. The Google Fiber download speed is 100 times than regular connections, whereas the upload is 40 times faster, too. Nevertheless, there is a major downsize: the sky rocketing prices, which will most certainly prevent customers from immediately switching to the Internet providing services of Alphabet Inc. – the company that is working to bring Google Fiber to Chicago and Los Angeles.
Jill Szuchmacher, the Director of Google Fiber Expansion was the first to announce that the famous super-fast Internet will arrive in the two cities. He posted a press release on the official website explaining Google’s plans for the following period.
According to Szuchmacher, Alphabet Inc. will no longer follow Google’s method of making Fiber gradually accessible from one neighborhood to another. The Internet provider wants to implement the service simultaneously in all neighborhoods.
It is very unlikely that Google Fiber will attract regular Internet users as prices are highly unaffordable. Users will have to pay around $70 a month to benefit of the 1 gigabit-Internet, but it’s all a matter of targeted audience.
The tech developer thinks the Fiber Internet will first attract companies in Chicago and indie rock stars in Los Angeles. These two consumer categories are the ones that require fast Internet speeds and can afford to pay for them, at the same time.
There are various requirements that cities have to fulfill before Google agrees to bring its Fiber Internet connection to Los Angeles and Chicago. The giant company is now verifying the infrastructure of the two cities, but they will not sign an agreement unless they are truly pleased with what they see.
Thus, it is clear that Google has now turned the tables. The company is no longer asking authorities to accept its Google Fiber service, but rather impose rules to those who want to benefit of its fast Internet connection.
