What this means is that in the future if you want to sign up for a Google Fiber plan, you’ll have to opt for its gigabit plans instead, where it’ll be priced at $70 a month. According to Google, “So, starting today, we’re recommitting to our roots. We’re going all in on a gig, just like we did all those years ago. We will no longer offer a 100 mbps plan to new customers.”
Google is trying to justify the change by claiming that they will be futureproofing your internet needs, where the company states, “And even if you don’t think you need a gig now, we think you will in the very near future: Internet usage in U.S. households is growing exponentially. With a gig, we’ll give you plenty of room to grow.”
Apart from ditching the 100Mbps plan, there are no other changes being made to Google Fiber. The pricing will remain the same and so will its terms and conditions (at least for now), meaning that there are no data caps nor speed throttling that users will have to keep an eye out for.
