7 Reasons Why Atlanta Needs Google Fiber

7 REASONS ATLANTA NEEDS Google fiber PROPERTY VALUES WILL INCREASE Houses and other residences where Google Fiber is installed can see as much as a 15 percent increase in value, according to estimates from Google and the Fiber To The Home Council. Reports from Kansas City, home of the first Google Fiber network, suggest that homes connected to the fiber network increased in value by as much as $5,000. 2 STARTUPS WILL FLOCK TO ATLANTA When Google Fiber arrived in Kansas City, it brought with it a multitude of new startups and businesses seeking to take advantage of the super fast connection speeds. The same thing could happen here in Atlanta, too, which is already a respected tech hub. OUR STUDENTS WILL BE ON THE FASTEST INTERNET IN THE COUNTRY Google fiber Students who have broadband access at home and in school perform better than students who do not. Schools and libraries are connected to Google Fiber for free, which will provide local students with faster, more efficient means of research. ATLANTA CONSUMERS WILL SAVE BIG Google Fiber is cheaper than comparable services from broadband providers. 20O HD channels, 1 gigabit download (and upload) speeds and a ONLY $120 DVR-like boxtop that allows owners to record up to 8 shows at once will be offered at a rate cable and satellite companies do not currently match. Google Fiber's max plan, which includes Internet services and television programming, is only $120 per month. COMPETITION IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS In Kansas City, Time Warner dropped prices and increased broadband services HUMBER ONE after Google Fiber made its way to town. Meanwhile, in Austin, AT&T reportedly said that it, too, was interested in bringing a gigabit network following Google's announcement of its intention to bring Fiber to the Texas capital. THERE'S NO DATA CAP WITH Google GOOGLE FIBER Comcast recently began enforcing a rule it already had on the books that capped Atlanta area subscribers at 300 gigabytes every 30 days. With Google Fiber, there is no limit to how much you can download or upload. xfınity THERE'S NO DATA THROTTLING WITH GOOGLE FIBER Recent net neutrality rulings allow Internet service providers freedom to limit access to Netflix, Hulu and YouTube.
