Google Fiber Adds New Business Class Tiers, Raises Rates
Google Fiber launched business class service in November of 2014, after taking a little heat from startups running into the residential Google Fiber terms of service regarding server operation. Originally, the company offered symmetrical gigabit service with an SLA for $100 per month. But in a new announcement by the company, Google Fiber notes that it's introducing three new business class pricing tiers, and in the process raising its rates for business-class customers.
Under the new pricing, the company is now offering symmetrical gigabit broadband for $250 per month, a $150 per month mark up suggesting its former $100 price point likely wasn't fully paying the bills for user consumption.
But in addition to bumping the price on its 1 Gbps business class offering, Google Fiber says it's offering a 250 Mbps tier for the same price gigabit service formerly was ($100). Users also now have the option of a new 100 Mbps business-class service tier at $70 per month.
None of these tiers have usage caps, and users can nab up to 13 static IPs for an additional cost. More detail on the new pricing can be found here.
