Install fee = $300 (waived if you sign for 2 years).

Not ready for the speed? get your house wired for $300 and get 5mpbs internet for 7 years at no cost.

The TV + Internet also appears to include a Nexus 7 Tablet as the remote.

Google swallowing costs beyond the income they get. These wouldn't be the prices if their main business would be as an ISP.

You can bet that what you are paying is a token fee and they will recoup the rest from data mining and advertising. Google is an advertising company. They aint doing this for free!

I'd pay the $300 and get the free service. 5/1 is good also.

One year for Internet only. Also, considering that their router box alone is worth $150 or so, the install fee is quite reasonable, if you didn't want to sign a contract.

Personally though, I'd sign the contract in a heartbeat. $70 anywhere else this side of the Atlantic/Pacific might get you 100 Mbps at best, but more likely less than 50 Mbps down and 10 Mbps up. This? Well, it's more than an order of magnitude faster.

No, it is different. I give (or don't) my information to google. If I don't encrypt my network requests the isp snoops any or all traffic.

No changes, default settings from the isp, type in a wrong or possibly not right address and you get a isp page offering up some advice.

Hate google all you want but please do not distort the facts.

Am hoping this raises the value of my condo (I'm in a target area). Looking at other news reports, there are many who seem to be interested in moving to KC. Plenty of tech jobs here too.

I'm not aware of any ISP that uses my laptop as a mobile data collection station. Google does exactly this with their Android smartphones, tablets, street view cars, etc. If you don't disable the location settings (and they are helpfully enabled by default) your Android phone sits in the background collecting data on every wireless network within range and adding it to Google's database.

If AT&T or Comcast did this it would be called predatory pricing. Google will pretty much run every single small service provider out of the market and probably out of business.

EPB didn't help raise my home value. It's not really a metric that's going to have much of an impact on what a home costs, at least for how.

I'm comfortable with it too because there is plenty of information out their that honestly explains what Google does with the data. There is a huge difference that some people ignore. Google is selling statistics based on data collected from users, most others are just selling the data itself because there's no value in the short term for data collected over long periods of time.

Even ignoring the isp part it's funny to see people always blaming google when they never cry about your typical web page that has numerous 3rd party tracking bugs that all collect data and send it to companies that are not the owner of the websites being visited.

Here's the problem, it increases they general value of the area some, but if every house has it then the value of every house doesn't rise much. (it was very MtView for them to ascert that it would raise the value $5k on each house, thats why most small 3 bedroom homes have been upgraded in similar ways in that area.
everyone has a hottub or small pool tile or cedar( which doesn't last there) roofs, flagstone patio, granite kitchen and so on.
If you follow the MUST HAVE list your little house is worth $1.1-2 million, trouble is you can't move to a cheaper one without leaving the area, a NOBODY would dare leave the silly valley.
Broadband alone won't attract many desirable* people.

*spammers and pervs are waiting to see if google will drop a dime on them, if not KC might be a worse place to be.

They haven't announced business pricing. My bet is that it's lower than equivalent services from TWC, AT&T and SureWest but above their cost of providing service.

Then again, they effectively don't have to pay for bandwidth at this point, they built their own equipment, etc.

Look at what Iliad is doing in France. They aren't pricing in a predatory manner. They just have lower costs.

There is no such thing as free bandwidth.

One of the articles mentioned they are not targeting large business. Though they will allow some small biz.

There isn't, this is true. However they already paid for whatever transit they have to service their server farms, and thus have a huge amount of capacity available in the other direction, downstream.

Yes, Google has to pay for fiber IRUs etc., but again this is something that they are paying for anyway for the main side of their business.

Makes perfect sense. Large businesses already have options in KC that are fast, albeit expensive. Small businesses, the type that would be grabbing a TWC business class cable connection, are probably what Google wants to serve on that side of things.

Google's terms says you are not allowed to run web servers on the network or any server that involves a lot of outside connections - personal use probably OK. I imagine if they do allow small biz, it would also be under those terms.
