The first thing we all have to realize when it comes to internet speed is that it really is a crapshoot. We all have different internet speeds. Some people are lucky enough to have fast internet connections, but most of us are forced to have slow Internet. I’m not sure where this stereotype came from, but it seems to be pretty common these days.
This is a great problem to have, especially for families with young kids who want to watch YouTube or other video content. You can’t even get a real broadband connection for a family with kids because they only have a few options, including DSL, cable, satellite, and wireless.
When I lived in the land of the big red button, I had the same problem. I did not have a real broadband connection, so I had to keep the kids entertained with a dial up connection that only got about 5-10Mbps. It was frustrating, but it was still a better option than the other options. If you’re lucky, you can get a 100Mbps connection for less than $10 a month, with plans that go up to 5MB per month.
As a kid, I used to work in a small town with slow internet, so I had to constantly hunt for places that offered fast and reliable internet. Thankfully, Google Fiber has been working their magic on the internet in my area for the last year or so, but it is still slow even in the big cities. If youre lucky, you can find a 100Mbps plan for less than 10 a month, with plans that go up to 5MB per month.

With all of the major cities in the eastern seaboard, including my home state of Maryland, Google Fiber is already the fastest internet plan I’ve ever been able to find in my area. In one of Maryland’s most rural towns Google Fiber is about the speed of dial up, but even at the edge of the largest city in my state, Annapolis, Google Fiber is about the speed of dial up.
Thats what I thought. Ive been in the DC metro area for about a month now and I still haven’t been able to get 100MB/s speeds, but I did find a 100MB/s plan that worked for me. So now I know that Google Fiber isn’t the pipe dream I thought it was.
The real proof of this idea is that Google Fiber is only available to residents of Maryland. And the only way you can get it is if you live in a state that cant do it, that is.
The thing I love about Google Fiber is its availability in a very large metro area. Google Fiber is available to people in Baltimore, DC, and Harrisburg. This is a huge deal, because this is a large metro area. In the U.S. this means that you can get a pretty decent plan, but not the 100+Mbps plan that Google Fiber offers. Google Fiber has a “fiber to the home” plan that allows them to deliver speeds of up to 1Gbps.
Since the Google Fiber deal was announced, people have been trying to get Fiber to their house, but the cost is extremely high. The basic plan is around $17,000 a month, plus the cost of installation. For a few hundred bucks more they offer a gigabit plan, which is supposed to allow you to get a very fast connection.
