Google Fiber announces ramping up their provision of optical fiber to the home (FTH) ISP services to considerably more cities and customers.
Google, which first launched the service in 2012, has already done so in Kansas City, Kan.; Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah. Google connects fiber optic cables directly to a home or office in order to give them broadband Internet and television service.
In Kansas City and Provo, the ultra-fast Internet service costs $70 a month. Add video and it bumps up the price to $120. Google is also offering slower, free Internet for at least seven years for a construction fee, which ranges between $30 and $300.
