Feb. 6, 2017
While Google Fiber continues to make news for its interest in fixed wireless, the company continues to market fiber-based services in markets where construction had begun BW (Before Wireless). Raleigh, NC, is one such market, and Google Fiber has announced it has opened sign-ups for residents and businesses in the North Hills, midtown area of the city.

While Google Fiber continues to make news for its interest in fixed wireless, the company continues to market fiber-based services in markets where construction had begun BW (Before Wireless). Raleigh, NC, is one such market (see "Google Fiber to bring FTTH to four southeastern cities, looks at five more"), and Google Fiber has announced it has opened sign-ups for residents and businesses in the North Hills, midtown area of the city.

The marketing of services in North Hills follows the opening of service delivery in nearby Morrisville. The company promises to offer services in other sections of the Research Triangle area of which Raleigh is a part.

For residents, Google Fiber will offer a pair of internet-only services, one at 100 Mbps and the other at 1 Gbps. Subscribers can add TV service to either option. Prices range from $50 a month for the 100-Mbps internet-only service to $160 monthly for gigabit broadband and TV.

Businesses can sign up for internet services at 100 or 250 Mbps as well as 1 Gbps.

The company says it also will offer special services to economically disadvantaged portions of the market.
