Google Fiber, the division of Google parent company Alphabet that provides fiber-to-the-premises service in the U.S., will no longer sell 100Mbps broadband plans to new customers. From a report: In a blog post this morning, Fiber announced that it’ll only offer gigabit (1,000Mbps) plans going forward in all 18 regions where it’s launched to date. The gigabit plan’s pricing — $70 per month — won’t change, nor will its terms. (There’s no data cap or throttle to speak of.) And starting tomorrow, Fiber will roll out a partnership with YouTube that’ll let customers sign up for YouTube TV at the same time they sign up for Google Fiber. Google Fiber acknowledges that it’s a somewhat self-serving transition.
