The new Google Fiber plan goes beyond the “1 Gig” plan, with 1 Gb / s speed. “In August, Google Fiber announced our plan to test the 2 Gig service in Huntsville and Nashville. Today, we are pleased to announce that 2 Gig is now widely available in these two cities, ”they announced.
Known as “2 Gig”, the new mode of internet service via fiber optics offers 2 Gb / s download and 1 Gb / s upload to subscribers, without any type of data limit, for US $ 100 per month, value equivalent to about R $ 510 in direct conversion. Customers still receive the Google Fiber Multi-Gig Router, with Wi-Fi 6.
The new plan, however, is limited to only two cities in Alabama and Tennessee: Huntsville and Nashville, respectively. “If you’re not in Huntsville and Nashville, don’t worry,” they said. “You can still sign up to try 2 Gig and other products through our Trusted Tester program.”
