With Google Fiber, we went from being in the dark (get it? optical communications?) about its status to a live network in a flash (see what I did there?). Today, the company suddenly announced that it’s brought at least four apartment or condo buildings in the vicinity of Music Row online, and residents of those buildings can now sign up for service and schedule an installation. Residents of certain other apartment or condo buildings can see if their building is slated for the go-live soon.
And they’ve announced prices as well: $50 monthly for 100 Mbps, or $70 each month for the heralded 1 Gbps speeds. They also offer a TV package and a home phone add-on.
For Nashvillians who just can’t wait to give really fast Internet a try, Google’s set up a trial space in The Gulch:

But those in other apartment buildings, single family homes, and businesses will just have to sit on their hands and wait patiently for the tight-lipped company to let them know when the service will be available to them. A hint: if you see crews burying a cable in your neighborhood, you might just be getting fiber service soon.
