Google Fiber internet plans and prices 2021
By AJ Dellinger Last updated: September 28, 2021
Google Fiber was launched over a decade ago by internet search giant Google, with the mission of providing fast and affordable high-speed internet. It is a highly-regarded service, both for its price and its speed, but is only available in specific parts of the U.S.
About Google Fiber internet
Launched in 2010 by Google, and now a part of Alphabet’s Access division, Google Fiber is a broadband internet provider that is a leader in bringing fiber optic internet connections to households. At the time that it launched, this was a novel offering as few broadband providers could match Google Fiber speeds. The number of Google Fiber locations has slowly grown over the years, though it tends to thrive in cities where it takes hold because of Google Fiber’s price and blazing fast connection speed. Google’s internet service remains one of the best bang-for-your-buck options out there, but it’s not available for most people.

Google Fiber plans and pricing
|Plans||Price||Upload speeds||Download speeds||Data caps|
|Google Fiber 1000||$70||1000 Mbps||1000 Mbps||No|
|Google Fiber 2000||$100||2000 Mbps||1000 Mbps||No|
*Pricing per month plus taxes for length of contract. Additional fees and terms may apply. Pricing varies by location and availability. All prices subject to change at any time. May or may not be available based on service address. Speeds may vary. As of 09/15/21.
Google Fiber plans only offer two options, but both should be more than serviceable for most people. Google Fiber 1000 offers upload speeds of 1000 Mbps and download speeds of 1000 Mbps for $70.
Google Fiber 2000 offers upload speeds of up to 2000 Mbps and download speeds of 1000 Mbps. Neither plan has a data cap, so you can make full use of the blazing fast Google Fiber speed. There is no contract with Google Fiber, so you are not locked into a plan for an extended period of time. You pay month by month and can drop service any time you want.
Few competitors can match Google Fiber in every category. Some provide competitive internet speeds, like Xfinity, but it costs three times as much. Most internet service providers offering plans in a similar price range offer slower speeds. Many competitors like AT&T and Cox have monthly data caps. Spectrum has no data cap and offers competitive pricing but doesn’t match the upload or download speeds of Google Fiber.
Allconnect’s favorite Google Fiber plan
For most people, the Google Fiber 1000 plan provides incredible value. Gigabit speeds, both for uploads and downloads, at a reasonable monthly price of $70 per month with no data caps and no long-term contract. Whether you stream lots of content, play video games online or just want a reliable internet connection so you can do your school assignments or work at home, the Google Fiber 1000 plan is a great combination of affordability, speed and flexibility.
If you feel like you need extra speed, perhaps because you live in a household with multiple people who will regularly be streaming content, consider the upgrade to the Google Fiber 2000 plan. It is the best plan for speed, as it doubles up to a 2-gigabit connection while maintaining gigabit upload speeds and no data cap.
Google Fiber contracts, equipment and fees
Getting started with any internet service provider requires some extra costs, and Google Fiber is no exception. Google fiber requires some equipment to operate. While there are no contracts, there is the potential to pay additional fees that you will want to be aware of.
Google Fiber contracts
Google Fiber does not require subscribers to sign on to a long-term contract. Google Fiber operates on a month-by-month basis, meaning you can drop the service at any time if you want to. There is no cost associated with switching services, as you will simply make your final month’s payment.

Google Fiber equipment
Google Fiber does require some equipment, and there is a wide range of available equipment depending on your needs. When you sign up, a technician will install a fiber jack and a network box. You can pay for your own router or you can use the Google Fiber router. As long as you do not need to replace the equipment and return it to Google when your service ends, you will not have to pay for the equipment. However, if you have to replace any of the equipment, you will have to pay a fee.
- Fiber jack: $100
- Network box: $200–$300
- Google WiFi: $100–$110
- Google Fiber Multi-Gig Router + Optical Connector: $280
- Google Fiber mesh extender: $180
Google Fiber cost and additional fees
Because Google Fiber does not require a contract, the fees associated with the service are minimal. You should not run into any hidden fees unless there are specific circumstances that may require additional costs, which Google will disclose to you. A $10 service deposit is required but will be credited toward any fees charged to your account. There is no early termination fee for leaving the service as there are no contracts.
There is a one-time $300 construction fee, but this will be waived if you sign up for a year of Google Fiber. If you do have to pay the construction fee, you can choose to pay it in $25 increments rather than in a lump sum.
Google Fiber customer service
Google Fiber, like most internet service providers, has its shortcomings. When that happens, you’ll want to be able to reach Google Fiber customer service. Luckily, Google seems to be relatively receptive when problems occur. While there are some horror stories, this is unfortunately common for internet service providers.
You can find a Google Fiber customer support number depending on what city you are located in through Google Fiber’s support page. You can also reach Google Fiber at:
Google Fiber availability
Unfortunately, Google Fiber is only available in a limited number of cities, largely major metropolitan areas. Google Fiber plans to come to a number of new cities in the future, but there have been hurdles in making that happen. Here is the current list of Google Fiber cities:
Google Fiber cable and bundling
In addition to providing broadband internet service, Google Fiber does offer fiber TV as well. This is a streaming TV service. You can bundle Google Fiber TV with either YouTube TV, FuboTV, Philo or Sling TV — four popular streaming live television services that offer a wide variety of channels, including local cable networks. Bundling Google Fiber 1000 with a Fiber TV plan will cost between $100 to $140, depending on which plan you select. You can also choose to subscribe to a live streaming TV service separately for more control if you decide you want to cut the cord on cable.
How does Google Fiber measure up to competitors?
In general, Google Fiber tends to provide better speeds at more affordable prices than its competitors, and with more flexibility thanks to unlimited data and no long-term contracts. However, it is only available in a small number of locations, which means most people do not have access to it.
The bottom line
Google Fiber provides great value, unmatched speeds, and doesn’t lock you into a long-term contract — though you’ll only be able to get this service in certain parts of the country.
