Fast in every direction.
The Google Fiber difference.

Super fast uploads

Your upload speed is how fast you send information. When you’ve got a lot of upload speed, everything you do goes much faster — from quickly sending large files, to gaming without lag, to experiencing smoother, more reliable video calls.

What can I do with 2Gig speeds that I can’t already do with 1Gig?

Google Fiber aims to set the standard for speed at a competitive price. 2Gig provides reassurance of a seamless, reliable connection everywhere in the home, even over Wi-Fi when everyone’s doing everything on the internet all at once, including working, learning, watching TV, gaming, using their smart homes, and more given how quickly the internet is changing. Customers can take on whatever they need online and be ready for whatever is coming next.

What’s Wi-Fi 6?

Wi-Fi 6 is a new Wi-Fi standard, with many Wi-Fi 6-ready devices already available in the market. Wi-Fi 6 allows for 30%+ faster speeds on Wi-Fi 6-enabled devices (such as phones, laptops, and tablets), and for more devices on a single network without slowing down Wi-Fi speeds. Wi-Fi 6 also improves battery life and provides greater security with WPA3.

With Google Fiber 2Gig, customers will receive the Google Fiber Multi-Gig Router and tri-band Mesh Extender. Both support the Wi-Fi 6 standard. A dual-band device has a 2.4 Ghz band and 5 Ghz band, but our tri-band Mesh Extender adds an additional 5 Ghz band for devices to connect to. The tri-band Mesh Extender extends Wi-Fi coverage, connecting to the router and creating a seamless Wi-Fi network that lets you roam throughout your home without having to reconnect or restart your device.

Why isn’t 2Gig symmetrical for uploads and downloads?

Most of the applications and services that can put 2Gig to work need higher download speeds. While we continue to test and evaluate even faster upload and download speeds, we think this combination is a great next step and at a competitive price. This is just the start of many more product launches to come. Our goal is to keep delivering groundbreaking speeds at competitive prices with the customer service Google Fiber is known for.

What router can I use with 2Gig plan?

All 2Gig customers will receive the Google Fiber Multi-Gig Router and tri-band Mesh Extender to use, which were custom-developed with a technology partner. Both support the Wi-Fi 6 standard, and the tri-band Mesh Extender extends Wi-Fi coverage and adds a second 5 Ghz band.

Due to the nature of the 2Gig plan, customers will not be able to use their own router.

Will 2Gig be available everywhere?

2Gig will be available in almost all of Google Fiber’s service areas, but there may be some technical limitations that will exclude some customers.
