In two cities which they bear the same name Kansas City, situated in the neighboring States of Missouri and Kansas, Google (Google Fiber) will set up its own optics for ultra fast Internet and cable television.
Telecommunications company in the U.S., which until now had a monopoly on these services, will now get a great competition in the “search king”, which will represent the Kansas City test bench for the entry of the entire U.S. market and then who knows maybe go out to conquer around the world.
Google’s services will cost $ 70 per month and will include Internet speeds up to 1 gigabit per second, which according to them is “100 times faster than the average existing broadband connection.”
Another Google service will include the Internet and cable television, and will cost $ 120 per month, where each user will get a tablet Nexus 7, which will be able to manage the TV and watch it on television and enjoy the benefits of ultrafast Internet.
In addition to these services, Google will offer internet with a “normal” broadband speeds and it will charge a one-time $ 300. In other words, when this service is paid, practically the whole life will have a “free” flat-rate Internet speed around 10-20 megabits per second.
Although Gigabit Internet in the world is already there, some telecommunications providers offer service that use optical fibers, Google says the service is due to the astronomical price so far is absolutely unacceptable to private customers.
It is worth to say that Google is on the development of its fiber optic network from 2010., and Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas were elected between 1100 areas that were examined, primarily because 17 percent of their population does not use the Internet, while 8 percent are still use dial-up connection.
Kevin Lo, Managing Director of Google Access, says that “setting optical fiber infrastructure will start after September 9, and the first customers will be able to enjoy ultra fast internet even before the end of this year.”
