Is Google Fiber Good for Internet and Home Phone Services?

In contrast to established fiber-optic internet providers, Google Fiber stands out as it isn't an offshoot of a longstanding telecom company—unless you consider Google's 24-year-old search engine as vintage. Users in its coverage areas praise Google Fiber for its speed, affordability, and performance, along with the straightforwardness of its internet service. However, unlike widespread fiber competitors like Verizon Fios, CenturyLink, and AT&T, Google Fiber has limited geographical availability, currently serving only 23 cities in the United States.

Google Fiber employs fiber-optic lines that transmit data through ultra-thin glass fibers, departing from the conventional copper wires used in cable and DSL (telephone line) internet. Like other fiber internet providers, this architecture yields speeds up to 100 times faster than cable and DSL connections, along with reduced occurrences of neighborhood slowdowns during peak usage hours. Although Google has initiated the introduction of its 5 Gig and 8 Gig internet plans, they are not universally accessible in every Google Fiber city yet.

Final Take: Is Google Fiber worth it?

Final Take: Is Google Fiber worth it?

Though we wish for broader availability—its U.S. expansion has decelerated since its 2016 debut—Google Fiber remains a formidable internet option. We appreciate Google Fiber's uncomplicated plan pricing and no-contract policy nearly as much as its remarkable download speeds (almost). If Google Fiber is accessible in your vicinity, we strongly recommend giving it a try.

With Google Fiber 1 Gig, you can use your Wi-Fi router or opt for Google Wifi, a mesh Wi-Fi system ideal for larger homes. The 2 Gig plan includes a Wi-Fi 6 router and mesh extender. A Fiber Jack, functioning as an ONT, converts in-home fiber-optic signals. Both the ONT and Network Box are part of the Google Fiber bill at no extra cost, and installation is free, whether professional or self-installation.
