Google Fiber for Property Owners & Managers
Google Fiber starts with a connection speed 100 times faster than today's average broadband. Instant downloads. Crystal clear high definition TV. And endless possibilities. It's not cable. And it's not just Internet. It's Google Fiber, and it’s now available to apartments, condos, townhomes, and student housing in Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri.
We believe that upgrading your multi-dwelling unit (MDU) to Google Fiber will make it especially attractive for future tenants -- once you get Fiber for your property, tenants will be able to get free Internet at today’s average speeds or upgrade to faster gigabit-speed Internet and crystal clear high-definition TV. Get started today and be one of the first multi-unit buildings in the country to have Google Fiber.

Pricing and Rebate
What you pay...
When you get Google Fiber, you get it for your whole property. To get Fiber for your property, you must pay a $300 construction fee (plus tax) for each unit in your property. You can pay this fee over 12 months.
...But you can get all of it back
When your property is connected to Google Fiber, each of your units can receive Free Internet at today’s average speeds for at least 10 years. But why settle for average? For each unit that upgrades from free Internet to either a Gigabit or Gigabit + TV plan, you will receive a monthly rebate of $25 up to the maximum construction fee (within 10 years).
That means you can fully recoup your expenses for bringing Fiber to your property if your tenants upgrade to Gigabit or Gigabit + TV.
Surveying, designing, and constructing MDUs takes more time than building to a single-family home. For your property to be service-ready with the rest of your fiberhood, you need to sign the Access Agreement 45 days ahead of your fiberhood close date. Once you sign, we can get started on construction. However, if you execute the Access Agreement before your fiberhood close date but later than this 45-day window, your property's Fiber installation may be delayed by 3-6 months.

Frequently Asked Questions
We define an MDU as a property with more than 4 units that require approval from a third party (owner/manager) to install Google Fiber service. This is a property that contains multiple residences, such as an apartment building or condo complex. If you own multiple residential units but don’t fall into this definition, contact us and we’ll work something out.
Each month, we take your total balance, divide it by the remaining months of payment in the year, and apply the rebate from your tenants with Gigabit or Gigabit + TV service. The number of these premium users will determine the amount of rebate applied to your next month's bill as a credit or issued as a check if you have already paid your construction fee in full.
We cannot provide any legal advice or review existing contracts. On our end, we do not require exclusives or restrict buildings from offering multiple services from any company. Here is a short summary of exclusivity guidelines, which is not intended as legal advice. Please seek your own counsel if you have questions about your contract or your legal rights.

© 2013 Google Fiber Inc. Think it's crazy speak to claim 100 times faster Internet? Actually, according to Akamai's State of the Internet 1Q2013, the average American only experiences speeds of 8.6 Mb/sec, while Google Fiber offers up to 1,000 Mb/sec download and upload. Actual Internet speed may vary. Go to Google Fiber Help Center at http://goo.gl/vBzLP for further details. If you're already cruising mighty fast on the Internet, the actual increase in performance you experience may differ - but gigabit speed like Fiber's is still the fastest residential Internet in the nation right now.
