Only problem I have with G Fibe is that it's still $70 per month. That's effing expensive. Sure it's for a gig which is nice to have but totally unnecessary for most. They should have lower end tiers as well. As it stands this is just a service for the affluent and does nothing to address the needs of the poor and underserved.
I'm in Austin, I have TWC because it turns out to be exclusive to where I am (TWC has an exclusive contract in this apartment complex that prevents me from being able to choose the good ones like Grande) and so my bill is $65 a month for 20 up/2 down.
They gave me a "We're raising our rates on you! We could have been charging you over 75 dollars a month, but here! We gave you this complimentary 65 a month rate, aren't we swell!" letter recently.
So, $5 bucks more a month for Google Fiber? For me, it's a no brainer... I'm planning to move to wherever it is rolled out. No more being stuck in exclusive contract zones snuck in by TWC.
For a while I'll be benefiting from this upgrade in TWC speeds... but it will not help one iota in making me a loyal customer.
