Google Fiber launched in Louisville Google Fiber has been officially launched in Louisville, KY. Louisville becomes the tenth city to get search giant's super fast internet service.
Google has been working on San Antonio, TX as well as Louisville for a while now. San Antonio is still under construction but today first customers will be able to apply for Google Fiber in Kentucky's largest city.

Louisville mayor Greg Fischer welcomed Google Fiber earlier today to the city with Google representatives visiting the city. The availability is fairly limited at this point, and only available in three neighborhoods (Portland, Newburg and Strathmoor). Google hasn't revealed the exact number of potential customers reached with the launch.

Louisville is the first city to not get Google Fiber as a Internet and TV bundle. Instead, you'll have separate Google Fiber internet connection which you can pair up with the new YouTube TV streaming service that costs you an additional $35/mo.

The internet service itself, however, is priced just like in other Google Fiber cities. 100/100Mbit for $50 and 1000/1000Mbit for $70/mo.

Google Fiber is now available in parts of Orange County, Salt Lake City, Provo, Kansas City, Austin, Charlotte, Atlanta, The Triangle, Nashville and Louisville.

My price went up for Comcast cable internet only earlier this month when my teaser rate expired. Luckily, we also have Century link FIOS available, but at a pretty steep price. Anyway, I called Comcast and asked if they could extend my rate for another year. I didn't mention Century Link, because I'm sure Comcast already knows they have competition for my internet bucks. Comcast agreed to extend my rate for another year and even bumped up my speed a bit; now I'm actually getting more speed than my plan calls for - advertised speed is 150 down and 10 up, but I'm getting 225 down and 12~15 up.
