How much should 25 Mbps symmetrical service cost? $15 a month, Google Fiber essentially says, as it introduces a new “budget” plan for residents in Kansas City, Mo. and Kansas City, Kan. Google Fiber neighborhoods with low rates of Internet connectivity.
In some U.S. markets, 20 Mbps to 25 Mbps from a telco or cable TV company can cost $60 a month.
The new Google Fiber plan is offered without any data caps, no application process or contracts and no equipment rental and no construction or installation fees.
Broadband plan coverage areas are determined using publicly available data from the U.S. Census and Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
The new service will be available in Kansas City starting May 19, 2016.
