Google has silently vanished the free option of its Fiber internet in Kansas City, Missouri. It now charges a minimum of $50 per month, waiving installation fee in return for a one-year contract.

Google Ends Free Option Of Fiber Internet In Kansas City

Kansas City was the first area where the high-speed broadband service of Goole was launched way back in 2011.

Google offers speeds of up to 1000 Mbps under its fiber-optic broadband service, available only across a select few cities in the US.

1000 Mbps is far higher than traditional broadband.

To lure customers Google offered a free service of up to Mbps speeds. For $70 a month it offers speeds of up to 1000 Mbps and 1TB cloud storage.

The Google Fiber is also available in Texas and if believed to a report by Mashable, Austin and Provo the free service is still available there.

The next city to get Google Fiber is Atlanta and it is being said customers won’t be enjoying the free 5Mbps option.

In Charlotte Nashville, Salt Lake City and Raleigh-Durham the project is under process with infrastructure and cabling work currently under construction. In San Antonio the Fiber is at design and planning stage.

Earlier this year, in February, the search giant announced bringing the project soon to San Francisco. It is also reported the officials in the city are in talks with Google to use the existing cabling rather to start from scratch.
