Google Fiber Launches Signups in Charlotte, N.C.

  • Google Fiber
CHARLOTTE, NC — Google Fiber has begun signups for its service in Charlotte, starting with the Highland Creek neighborhood — the first fiberhood to be connected. Residents in Highland Creek will be able to sign up for one of three plans: Fiber 1000 + TV, Fiber 1000, and Fiber 100, with the option to add Fiber Phone to any plan. Eligible small businesses can sign up for one of three new business offerings, available for the first time in any city.

Meanwhile Google is continuing its Charlotte buildout, which will eventually reach every part of the city. "It will take time, but we’re working hard to bring fiber to as many neighborhoods as possible in Charlotte," said Mary Ellen Player, city manager, Google Fiber Charlotte. "We’ll be opening new neighborhoods for signups as we complete network construction in those areas. Keep in mind, residents will have a limited amount of time to sign up — this helps us to focus resources before we move on the next area. You can track progress for all areas on our website. And if you live in an apartment building, check out our Apartment Finder to see if your building on track to get fiber.

Connecting the Unconnected
As Google connects Charlotte to Google Fiber, it's also working to bring faster speeds to families who may not be online today. The company plans to introduce a broadband plan that offers 25 Mbps for $15 a month to some of the most digitally divided areas of the city, determined using data from the U.S. Census and Federal Communications Commission. Google will also be offering gigabit Internet at no cost to residents in select public and affordable housing buildings. These programs will build on existing investments, like our support of digital inclusion fellows at the Urban League, Charlotte Mecklenburg Housing Partnership, and the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library.
