“When we switched, the setup was extremely easy. When I called support, my questions were answered quickly and correctly. The biggest compliment I can give is that we no longer think about our internet, because it is no longer prone to slowdowns or outages. My goal is to keep our customers as happy as we are with Google Fiber.”
CEO Steelray Software
“Google Fiber made it possible to operate a high-tech incubator in the middle of a digital desert. With their flawless service and the unmatched uptime of our network connection we hope that Google will continue to be our internet provider for many years to come.”
Proprietor Hammerspace Workshop
“Google Fiber has been an excellent and reliable internet service in our area.. We’ve been using Google Fiber for over a year and have had zero issues. Literally. The ability to focus on our clients and not worry about the internet service has been a true relief.”
Vice President, Workplace Elements
“We chose Google Fiber Business because of their availability, price, and reputation. We have found our experience to be excellent, with no billing issues since it was installed over five years ago. We have had no interruptions or slowdowns. It is a very reliable service that allows us to support our customers.”
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.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a unique number assigned to each computer on a network. Just as a street address determines where a letter should be delivered, an IP address identifies computers on the Internet. If your computer is hosting a web server, its IP address is what identifies it to the rest of the internet.
A computer on the internet can have a static IP address, which means it stays the same over time, or a dynamic IP address, which means the address can change over time.
If you sign up for multiple static IPs with your Google Fiber service, you must use your own router.
The vast majority of internet features work without static IPs, including web browsing, email sending and receiving, video streaming, and voice over IP (VoIP). However, you might need static IPs if one or more of these scenarios applies to you: - You maintain your own web server or other internet server, such as an email server, that requires users to connect from the internet. - You have external devices or services that must connect to your network via IP address (for example, 126.96.36.199) rather than by name (for example, google.com). - You use a VPN or other service to remotely connect to computers in your business.
In many cases, you can host a server on an internet connection without static IPs by using Dynamic DNS. With Dynamic DNS, when your IP address changes, your DNS entry is automatically updated with your new IP address. The Google Fiber Network Box includes support for Dynamic DNS, which you can configure for your network.
If you aren't sure whether you need static IPs, consult with your IT expert. You can add or remove static IPs from your account, even after your service starts.
We believe today’s businesses deserve gigabit speeds. While our Business 1 Gig plan will likely meet the needs of most businesses, businesses who do substantial downloading, uploading, or have a high number of users (50+) may find our Business 2 Gig plan to be a better option. Business 2 Gig also includes a single static IP assignment and up two Wi-Fi mesh extenders, which can add Wi-Fi coverage for larger offices.
Yes. If you’re using your own router, please make sure that it fits these recommended specifications. Please note that the Google Fiber support team will not be able to support routers manufactured by third parties.
If you choose to add multiple static IPs to your service, you must use your own router. If you choose to add 1 or no static IPs, you can choose to use your own router, but it is not necessary. Your plan already includes a Google Fiber Network Box that can serve as your router. For more information, please visit our Help Center.
Our fiber optic internet gives you a strong, steady, 99.9% reliable connection with fewer points of failure than cable internet. Fiber optic is more reliable than cable since it is more resistant to electromagnetic, corrosive, and lightning-related damage, and it is less likely to go down during a power outage.
By default, all Google Fiber Business plans include a Wi-Fi 6 router. This router can provide Wi-Fi coverage for up to 2,000 square feet, though exact coverage can be impacted by many variables. Customers with specific Wi-Fi or networking needs are also able to use their own Wi-Fi router.
Fiber optic networks typically offer lower latency than copper networks. Lower latency generally means smoother VoIP and video calls. Add on our high upload and download speeds and Google Fiber Business is a good match for most VoIP services. We recommend consulting your VoIP provider to ensure any internet service requirements are being met.
To have Google Fiber installed for your business location, we need an access agreement. This agreement allows us to perform a site survey of your property, and, if the site survey meets our criteria, to install Google Fiber. If you are a property manager, fill out this form to start the process.
After we receive the form, a Google Fiber team member will contact you to answer any questions you have about bringing Google Fiber to your property. Then, we'll send you an access agreement and work with you to schedule a site survey.
