It's HERE!!!

Well, it was actually here on Tuesday, but I just haven't had time to write about it! What am I talking about? Google Fiber!!!

That's right, we finally have Google Fiber in our house, and let me tell you it is super fast! We had another provider, and had nothing but problems with them, but that provider had our area and it was either them or sign a 2 year contract with another provider that was even worse. So, we kept our sub par internet connection waiting, patiently, for Google to finally install in our neighborhood. Tuesday, September  24 it finally arrived. The install took less then 2 hours, and they hooked everything up for us. Of course, when my hubby came home, he hooked everything up differently- the way he wanted, but it's here and it is fast.

If you don't have Google Fiber in your home, and you have the option to have it, what's stopping you? We chose the cheapest package, for now, and it will only cost us $25 a month for the next year, and then it's free for years after that! Companies can complain that Google is trying to monopolize things, but there's no monopoly, in my opinion. You can still choose Clear, AT&T, and other internet companies. But honestly why would you, when those companies charge twice as much (or more) for less service? If you don't have the ability to get Google Fiber, see what you can do to change that. I've read that several companies are trying to get into the Fiber installation, which is great, but what about the cost as well? To many companies are so greedy, charging you way to much for something that costs next to nothing to use. Things will only change if you start yelling for change. Companies will do most anything to keep their customers, as we found out when we cancelled our old internet service. They begged, pleaded, even offered to drop our price from $50 a month to $30 a month for the next 6 months.

I am so excited about this internet service, and what it means for our homeschooling. Faster internet connection means faster searching, faster video learning, faster everything.

Until Next Time,
