Google Fiber, the division of Google guardian firm Alphabet that gives fiber-to-the-premises service within the U.S., will not promote 100Mbps broadband plans to new customers. In a weblog publish this morning, Fiber announced that it’ll solely supply gigabit (1,000Mbps) plans going ahead in all areas the place it’s launched so far.

The gigabit plan’s pricing — $70 per 30 days — gained’t change. And beginning tomorrow, Fiber will roll out a partnership with YouTube that’ll let customers enroll for YouTube TV on the similar time they enroll for Google Fiber.

“Seven years later, we’ve seen a huge shift, not only in Internet speeds, but also in how we use the internet,” Fiber wrote. “With increasingly connected homes and ever-improving technologies, speed is more important than any time in our history — and becoming more important every day. And with our fiber networks, we’re uniquely positioned to deliver it.”

By approach of background, Google Fiber was first launched to the Kansas City metropolitan space, together with twenty Kansas City space suburbs inside the first three years. It later expanded to Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah in April 2013, and subsequently to Atlanta, Charlotte, the Triangle, Nashville, Salt Lake City, and San Antonio in 2014 and 2015.

Google Fiber’s 100Mbps plan — Fiber 100 Internet — began at $50 per 30 days and didn’t embrace free Google Drive storage, not like the gigabit plan. Additionally, it didn’t supply an non-obligatory TV bundle or the {hardware} bundled with pricier plans, particularly a TV field and an eight-tuner DVR.

Google Fiber at the moment affords free web connectivity in every of its markets to pick out inexpensive housing properties. We’ve reached out to Google to see whether or not this may change, and we’ll replace this publish as soon as we hear again.
