Comcast’s gigabit fiber network is here, and it won’t come cheap. The cable giant recently revealed pricing for the 2Gbps service, but you may want to sit down before reading any further.
Ready? Comcast’s “Multi-Gig” Gigabit Pro Internet will cost $299.95 per month plus the cost of installation, though Comcast is apparently offering a $159/month promotion with a two-year agreement. On top of that, the cost of hooking up your Comcast fiber connection can be as high as $500 for installation and you’ll need to pay another $500 activation charge. That’s up to $1,000 for a setup process that the company says can take as long as eight weeks to complete.
By comparison, Google Fiber’s 1Gbps service costs just $120 per month for Gigabit Internet and TV with no installation fee. You can also opt for just the high-speed Internet for $70 per month, or basic Internet for $0 per month and a $300 construction fee. Of course, Google’s network is half as fast, but that’s still a huge difference in pricing.
Comcast also boasts wider availability. It’s Gigabit Pro service is already available in parts of Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Tennessee and California. However, you still have to live less than a mile away from the fiber network to qualify.
At these prices, Comcast’s service may seem geared toward enterprise use, but Comcast says pretty explicitly that it’s only offering Gigabit Pro for residential use at the moment.
