    Google Fiber

    Anyone else see this? I think there have been threads on this, but this is the first time I've seen their specific offering.

    https://fiber.google.com/plans/residential/

    1 GPS up. 1 GPS down. Tons of TV and movie channels, free nexus 7 tablet, 2 tb DVR, and 1 tb cloud space on Google Drive. $120 a month.

    wow.

    If this is successful, they'll change everything.

    So far, it will only be offered in Kansas City. Hope they head this way soon. If they can deliver on their offer $120 is a steal.

    No ESPN? I wonder what kind of sports packages they offer.

    I don't think the nutritional value is any greater than traditional fiber.

    Only $70/month for the Gigabit internet, that's sick.

    I, too, came in here to make a joke about dietary fiber...but it looks like you beat me to it. Well played.

    Re: Google Fiber

    My sister lives in KC but she's too much of a cheap *** to buy this. Her and her boyfriend are too afraid of technology. They don't even have wireless internet at their house.

    I would try to convince them to get this, but it's a lost cause.

    I doubt that.


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.
