Google Fiber to offer 100 gbps broadband speeds

Google Fiber, a part of the Access division of Alphabet, is planning to offer 100 gbps broadband speeds for its consumers in the US, ZDNet news report said.
Google Fiber InternetGoogle Fiber rivals Comcast, Time Warner Cable, and AT&T are not offering one gigabit speeds at present.

This forced incumbents to boost speeds in areas where Google Fiber was available, but its coverage was limited and remained stagnant for five years until last month, when it revealed plans to expand to five more states.

Google Fiber CEO Dinni Jain says he wants to offer affordable access to multi-gig speeds and claims that a colleague recently got 20Gbps download speeds in Kansas City when testing the service.

Google Fiber offers a symmetrical 1gbps service for $70 a month and last year started selling a 2/1Gbps download/upload service for $100 a month, with 1TB of cloud storage.

“In the coming months, we will have announcements to expand our multi-gigabit tiers. These will be critical milestones on our journey to 100 Gig symmetrical Internet,” Dinni Jain said.
