Google Fiber Introduces 3 Plans for Small Businesses
Google Fiber is launching three new plans geared toward small businesses.
The plans replace Fiber’s Early Access model with the ability to pick upload and download speeds ranging from 100Mbps to 1,000Mbps.
The plans will be available to all small businesses, as long as they are located in a city where Fiber is available.
“In 2014, we launched our Early Access program to bring faster speeds to businesses in our Fiber cities. Since then, we’ve been inspired by what these businesses have been able to do. From a media company that now conducts virtual jam sessions to a coffee house that livestreams their community events, we’ve seen many unlock new possibilities with a speedy, reliable connection,” Google Fiber product manager John Shriver-Blake said in a blog post.
“At the same time, we know that businesses come in different shapes and sizes. They have varying needs and would like the flexibility to choose a plan that best fits their needs.”
The entry-level plan, Fiber Business 100, offers speeds of up to 100Mbps for $70 per month. The next plan up offers 250Mbps for $100 a month while the premier plan offers 1000Mbps and is priced at $250 a month.
Google has also increased the number of static IP addresses available to a business— as many as 13.
Google has plans to expand its Google Fiber community across the country, greatly increasing Internet speeds. By expanding its fiber-optic networks, the company said, it will greatly enhance connectivity for millions of Americans.
So far, Fiber has come to Kansas City, Austin, Atlanta, Charlotte and Provo. It is in the works in Salt Lake City, Nashville, Raleigh-Durham and San Antonio. Other cities that are currently being examined as potential Google Fiber sites include Los Angeles, Chicago, Pheonix, Portland, Irvine, San Diego, Oklahoma City, Tampa, Jacksonville, Louisville and San Jose.
