It probably says somewhere that you get UP TO 25/5. Im sure they even say it on the site when you buy it. Thats how it is for verizon and cablevision/optimum also.

This is old news, but it's something I'm looking forward to where I live. I saw this article on Tom's a few months ago.
I'm on the fastest internet connection available here...... a whole Megabit per second. sad-smiley-002.gif

@ SammichThyme-
You're getting exactly what you paid for. 25Mbp/s is equal to 3.1MBp/s. Your upload is much more than what you're paying for though!
Divide Megabits by 8 to get Megabytes (1Mb = .125MB)

Google Fiber is $70/month with no installation charges. That is $350/month. Not sure about installation though.

The 1000mbps service is $300 now, and we weren't charged any installation fees when we got our service (50mbps plan). GF is cheaper, but still 3 years behind. Point is, I don't understand why this is such a big deal, it isn't ground breaking.

It is though, 70 dollars a month is reasonable price to pay for internet (even if it is about 7/10ths of that at 700-800mbps). $300 is outrageous amount to spend for internet and you obviously go down to 50 mbps because it is too expensive to get the gigabit. At that point its a "look at me we're first thing" but no one will buy it but the very well off because it would ruin them. You could make the argument that you don't need it, but i'm all to sure you would buy gigabit internet access if it was as cheap as $70 a month.

You're absolutely right that google fiber is "behind" in being the first to offer such speeds but who cares when its $230 per month cheaper. The story is the price of the speed and that is why people are interested because when it comes down to it, its not just about the speed, its about the combination of the price and the speed and that makes it pretty groundbreaking that middle class citizens can get internet up to 100x faster and not break the bank.

Dont even get to gaming in a family house..Too many mobile devices and computers on the network.

I know that feel. Its actually worth it for me to pack my laptop & external drive, and drive to a friend up in northern spokane who has 40Mb to download games with. otherwise i can only let them download overnight, or i have to deal with eveyrone complaining that they cant use the internet, which pretty much happens Every time somebody loads up youtube also...... frown.gif
