[company]Google[/company] is offering three tiers: 1 Gbps will cost $70 a month, 1 gigabit and Google’s Fiber TV service go for $130 a month, and basic 5 Mbps internet is free for consumers who pay a $300 construction fee. That’s the same cost structure as in Kansas City, with the exception that Google is charging an additional $10 a month for the TV package, likely reflecting fees from local broadcasters. Small businesses are being charged $100 for 1 Gbps per month.
Google is once again doing these installs neighborhood by neighborhood, and has different sign-up deadlines for each of its so-called “fiberhoods” in the South and Southeast of the city. The company has yet to announce when it will open up sign-ups for the rest of Austin.
