Google Fiber won’t be charity packages of normal radio service in the future. In a recent blog post, the company has pronounced it’s focusing on its categorical goal—”to bring superfast Internet to some-more people.”
When Fiber gets to its newest markets in Louisville and San Antonio, it’s going to just offer Internet, but the traditional TV packages.
“[M]ore and some-more people are moving divided from normal methods of observation radio content,” writes Google’s Cathy Fogler. “Customers currently wish to control what, where, when, and how they get content. They wish to do it their way, and we wish to help them.”
Google will continue to offer TV service in markets where it has already been offered, even though, as Fogler notes, some-more business are selecting Internet-only options.
Customers that compensate for normal TV are a comparatively tiny partial of Google Fiber’s patron base. The last arguable estimate, published progressing this year by DSLReports, shows that the service has just over 84,000 profitable TV customers—although the definition of that series is tough to interpret given that Google doesn’t report the series of altogether broadband subscribers.
The move divided from normal TV is getting a little force from Google, as well. Google Fiber business in Charlotte will see the cost of their TV plans boost by $20 next year, while new business will compensate $30 more, the Charlotte Observer reported progressing this week. The prices for Internet-only business haven’t changed given the product launched in 2012.
