Google is looking for people to try out its speedy new internet plan. The new residential 20 Gig internet with Wi-Fi 7 for $250 per month. Installations will start early next year.
“At $250, it’s a lot of speed for that price, and we know that it will enable innovators who want to be able to push what’s possible to truly get to work,” Google’s Head of Product, Nick Saporito said in a blog post.
Fast, reliable internet access is in high demand in today’s increasingly digital world. Google’s plan to offer service at twice the speed from the current fastest provider would be a boon for wireless and smart home devices along with streaming and remote work services.
If you’re interested, you can sign up for early access through this Google Form. Saporito said early access is starting in Kansas City, North Carolina’s Triangle Region, Arizona, and Iowa, but more locations will be added as Google continues to roll out Nokia’s 25G PON.
“[S]peed is the first step towards next generation internet,” Saporito said in a blog post. “We’re working to redefine internet customer experience and to bring it to more people in more places, and GFiber Labs is focusing on how we go from incremental to exponential improvement when it comes to what your internet can do.”
In October, Google announced it would be rolling out its 20 Gig internet with Wi-Fi 7 — the first Gfiber Labs project — at the end of the year, after reporting its first test installation at the United Way of Utah County.
