When Google Fiber first launched in 2010, many people thought the project was too crazy, perhaps just google’s water trial. But now it has become a household name in the United States Internet broadband service, and gradually cover more cities in the United States. Google today announced it will no longer offer 100Mbps broadband to new users, following a surge in user size and market influence.
In the early days of Google Fiber, in order to attract users who didn’t need 1Gbps and were more cost-conscious, they had to concede a 100Mbps subscription, which allows users to pay only $50 a month to enjoy a truly unlimited service. But compared to the full Fiber subscription, the file doesn’t offer much benefit, so the price is not very high.
Given the current trend in Internet usage in the U.S. and Fiber’s same-level business, after nearly a decade of running, Google Fiber decided it was time to abandon the Fiber 100 program altogether.
Starting today, new customers who book Google Fiber have only one option: a $70-a-month 1Gbps broadband network service. Subscribers with 100Mbps can now automatically upgrade to 500Mbps, although the monthly fee will rise to $55. Fibre also announced a partnership with YouTube, which will allow new Fiber customers to sign up for YouTube TV at the same time.
