“Google Fiber has always set the bar on speed and customer service — and now we’re taking the next step in the evolution of internet speed,” a spokesperson for Google Fiber said in a statement.
“With so many people working and learning from home, they need extra speed that allows everyone in their house the freedom to do what they need and what they want to do online all at the same time.”
According to HighSpeedInternet.com, the only other provider of 2GB service is Xfinity from Comcast.
