Google has announced they will make a 1Gbps internet package available in Austin, Texas, for only $70 per month. Users will pay a one-time construction fee of $300, but that fee can be waived if customers sign up for a one-year contract. The plan also includes a massive 1TB of free cloud storage with other Google services, such as Gmail, Google+ photos, and Google Drive.

There is no announced release date of the new plan, as Google is still installing the 1000 miles of fiber for their new network. Google Fiber is already available in several ares, and there are plans for more expansion as the year progresses.
