Google Fiber is being rolled out all over Kansas City right now and it’s finally gone live for some customers. The first question is how fast is it? Apparently, the $80 per month plan is crazy fast. People with Google Fiber can expect 700 Mbps down on ethernet and about 200 Mbps down on Wi-Fi, according to Ars Technica.
By comparison, I pay $55 per month for Verizon Fios and get download speeds of about 5 Mbps. That seems fast enough for my heavy downloading, streaming needs. I can’t even imagine 700 Mbps. The next question is when the hell does Google roll this out to other cities?
