What will happen to all the devices that use fiber optic cables in your home?
That’s the question that Google Fiber has been trying to answer as it expands its service into the residential market, and now that it’s in the home market, we’ll learn a lot more about that service.
Read moreRead moreOn Monday, Google Fiber announced plans to open up fiber-optic networks to new residential customers, making it easier for those with existing connections to join the service.
Google Fiber said it would offer fiber-based internet access for $50 per month for a four-year contract.
This is in addition to its existing internet service for $70 per month, which customers can already opt into, as well as its $70-$100 per month “Fiber” Internet plan, which provides gigabit speeds for the same price as a gigabit connection.
While Google Fiber is opening up fiber to the home for the first time in the United States, there are currently no plans for the company to expand beyond the city of San Francisco, which serves as the hub for Google Fiber’s expansion plans.
The city is already a major market for Google, with its population of more than 300,000.
While it may be more convenient to bring your own internet service to the city, it’s not as easy to get the gigabit service that Google is offering.
This week, Google launched a campaign to raise $1 million for its “Google Fiber Challenge,” a competition where users have to build a fiber-to-the-home network in under 30 minutes.
The Google Fiber Challenge is an effort to help encourage the adoption of internet-connected devices, like smartphones, and bring new technologies to the market.
Google is also asking users to help make its Fiber program financially viable, and the company said that it has raised $3 million so far to support the effort.
Google has been ramping up Fiber plans over the past year, introducing the first Fiber service in December of last year.
This is the first sign that Google may be looking to expand its Fiber services to other cities, although it has yet to announce a specific city.
If it does, the company could open up Fiber to the public as early as next year.
