The Internet  service (via fiber optic) promises a speed 100 times faster than the major U.S. providers offer and ensures a nominal speed of 1 Gigabyte per second for downloads and uploads.

The Google Fiber also comes with a TV service with local channels and integrated with Netflix and YouTube, allowing to watch live or on demand content. In addition, you can record up to eight concurrent programs and store them in the cloud with Google Drive with up to 1 Terabyte available.

There are three packages available for residential plans. The basic price is $30 for cable installation provides downloads up to 5 MB/s and a few TV channels. The complete plan costs $120 more for the broadband plus TV or $70 just for internet. For thoso who hire the full service, will still receive a Nexus 7, the Google tablet, which also function as TV control.
