Google Fiber Has Gone Live in the Greater Raleigh Area! Are You Ready to Cut the Time Warner Cord Like We Are?

If you have been waiting anxiously for Google Fiber to come to Raleigh, the wait just got a little shorter. The Triangle will be Google’s new fiberhood – an area that has been grouped first for the city. Google Fiber designates areas to be within a fiberhood and then extends out to create new ones. What is a fiberhood? It’s basically a designated area within a city where fiber optic cables are run and available as another option for internet, cable and phone. The connection is up to 1,000 megabits per second with very fast downloads. Unlimited data is available as well as no contracts or rental fees.
Currently, there are options for just internet, an internet and TV bundle and also the option for a phone and streaming entertainment services as an add-on. Bundles are less than $200 and Internet is less than $100.
Google first worked with city leaders to explore the infrastructure of the Triangle and how to best bring the service to the area. Then, they planned and designed the layout from scratch of where to build based on several different amenity lines. Thousands of miles of fiber optic cables were then laid.
As a property owner in the Triangle, imagine being able to add this service to your list of amenities for your property! This is a great opportunity to stand out among the crowd by offering the brand new Google Fiber to your property offering. This is especially great for multi-family buildings. If you are considering adding a great new feature to your building, check out this option Google Fiber offers.
Sign ups for the Triangle are underway now! Get on board to be one of the first to use Google Fiber in your city. Installation will be coming very soon! To sign up for Google Fiber in the Triangle area of Raleigh, go to this website.
