Sinks google fiber install journey

Welcome to sinks google fiber adventure i am documenting all the steps and the install. They have been laying fuber for about 3 months now and i was emailed today with the ability to order service (cutting 130$ from my bill to 70$ Fuck comcast)

I order service today and i chose the basic 1gb u/d there is 2gb but i didn’t see the need

I clicked added my phone number and payment info easily and selected my install date asap

I will have people come before the activation date to run the fiber from the street and install the “niu” its a ont

Then after that very soon a tech will arrive and turn on the provided free router (i have my own i will use)

Speed tests and latency and torrent download speed tests will be compared to the 500/100 comcast speed

$70 per month for GIGAinternet is pretty decent.

Around here i think the only provider of gigaspeeds charges around $150 per month for that

Good luck to you, hopefully things will go pretty smoothly for you :wink:

I have a choice of Either Comcast or Century Link who advertises Gig Fiber but has not been installed in my area yet so why do they keep sending me flyers.

I’m staying with Comcast until a third or fourth provider comes into the area with some reasonable rates.

I’m so jealous!

They ran conduit in front of my house back on May. For the rich neighborhoods down the road from me. Supposedly they will be pulling fiber and I should be able to get it as well.
Right now I have CenturyLink DSL, 30/3 as my only option. :confused:

I am moving to Arvada, CO next month and the apartment building I am moving into supposedly has Century Link 1Gbps symmetrical hookups. Very excited to be joining the club soon.
