    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.

    Re: Google Fiber

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


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    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.
