No Google Fiber? No problem. Residents in select neighborhoods in Seattle will have access to gigabit Internet speeds beginning in 2014. Gigabit Squared on Monday announced pricing plans for its upcoming fiber network in Seattle. The company will offer a basic plan with download speeds of 5Mbps and upload speeds of 1Mbps for free for 60 months, after which time customers can convert to 10Mbps service for just $10 per month. Other plans include download and upload speeds of 100Mbps for $45 per month, or speeds of 1Gbps for $80 per month. Customers will also be required to pay a $350 installation fee for 100Mbps plans or higher unless they sign a one-year contract. Gigabit Squared is the latest company to offer gigabit Internet speeds, following the successful launch of Google Fiber in Kansas City last year.
