Exciting news, San Antonio: Starting today, you can get super fast Internet for just $55 per month

Alamo City, Google Fiber has arrived!

We’re excited to announce that today, we launched sign-ups in two initial areas of our deployment near Westover Hills and in the West End Park neighborhood.

There’s more - and even better - news: in San Antonio, we’ve priced our Fiber 1000 (1,000 mbps) service at $55 per month. There’s no installation fee, no hidden fees, no contracts, and no data caps. Just super fast Internet service for less than the speed limit on I-35.

As we announced last month, our focus in San Antonio (as in Louisville, where we launched service earlier this month) is on providing super fast Internet service, enabling folks to access content - including live and local TV content - from any source they choose. The abundant bandwidth and low latency of a Fiber connection makes streaming video, even in 4K, 3D, or virtual reality formats, smooth as butter.

We know that San Antonio, home to Hulu’s recently announced 500-person customer service operation, loves video streaming. So one option when you sign up for Fiber is to add YouTube TV. YouTube TV offers cable-free live TV from San Antonio’s local stations -- ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC -- and other popular cable networks like ESPN and AMC, along with a cloud DVR with no storage space limits.

Customers who sign up for YouTube TV at the same time they sign up for Google Fiber will also receive a NVIDIA® SHIELD™ TV, the most advanced streaming device and a voice-activated remote control powered by Google Assistant, and a free trial of YouTube TV. After the free trial, you can keep YouTube TV for $35 per month.

Most people access their Fiber connection using wifi, so we’ve included with your sign-up one free Google Wifi router. (Additional devices are available for purchase during installation if the size or shape of your home requires it for full coverage.) And Google Wifi includes top-tier security and smart technology that lets you prioritize devices, block certain websites, and stay on top of kids’ screen time.

We want to thank San Antonio leaders for their vision and leadership throughout the process of bringing Fiber to the Alamo City. We also want to thank San Antonians for their patience - building a brand new fiber network is a big infrastructure project and a massive undertaking, and you’ve stuck with us.

San Antonians in these first neighborhoods are open until Dec. 21. Meantime, we’re continuing to extend the network to more of the city, so if you’re not in an open area just yet, be sure to leave us your email address so we can notify you when your address is eligible.
