This thread was inspired by @cr6. Some of us have grown tired of our service options as far as cable and internet. And in our frustrations we begin to wonder if the grass is greener on the other side. I am not here to convince you one way or another but to just present the facts and ask you to look at your current provider to determine if you would be getting a deal or paying more. Lets start with the facts and to do so we are going to use the rates for Kansas City. Google Fiber as of now offers 3 options; Gigabit+TV, Gigabit Internet, and Basic Internet. Gigabit +TV: $120 per month (plus taxes and fees) $130 per month in Austin so prices vary per city (Plans and Pricing Austin Google Fiber) 1000 Mbps (1 gig) up/down 150 channels (TV Channels Kansas City Google Fiber) 1 TB storage 1 TV box included DVR and Network Box included 2yr commitment with $300 construction fee waived Gigabit Internet $70 per month 1000 Mbps (1 gig) up/down 1 TB storage Network Box 1 year commitment with $300 construction fee waived Basic Internet $0 per month +$300 construction fee one time or $25/mo for 12 months 5 Mbps down 1 up Network Box No contract and free service for at least 7 years So I challenge you to look at your current bill and ask are you saving or losing by switching. Keep in mind the speeds your current provider offers. For me Gigabit Internet with Hulu, Netflix, and SlingTV would come to $107 (give or take). My current bill with Xfinity 50 Mbps up/down and the sports package come to $99.
