Google Fiber will start testing ‘2 Gigabit Internet’ for $100

In recent years, Alphabet’s Access division has dropped Fiber’s 100 Mbps plan and traditional TV to streamline offerings for new customers. Google Fiber announced today that it will start testing 2 gigabit plans next month.

This doubling is said to be for “customers in internet-intensive households who may need more than a gig to do their thing, whatever that may be.” It will cost $100 per month for 2 gigabits download and 1 gigabit uploads. This is only $30 more than the existing gigabit plan.

Subscribers will be provided with an unspecified Wi-Fi 6 router and mesh extender. Google Fiber says it can offer faster speeds due to its “approach to network design.”

“Airfreight is going to be a bright spot for carriers at least for this year because while borders are closed that doesn’t mean people aren’t buying,” said Um Kyung-a, an airline analyst at Shinyoung Securities in Seoul, South Korea. “That trend is likely to continue as cargo capacity remains limited.”

The sort of goods moving along this global conveyor belt 30,000 feet in the sky also track the pandemic’s unfurling. Masks and gloves have given way to
