I switched from AT&T gigabit fiber to 2 GB Google Fiber, and couldn't be happier. My conection went from regularly unreliable to highly reliable, which I attribute to better quality cable and switches at the root level. The Google documentation for the interface equipment was either nonexistent or marginal, but the systen I/Os were largely intuitive. My speeds have indeed doubled, and almost seem bulletproof, with the caveat that the local loops are probably largely operating at 50% capacity. VERY pleased thus far.

I switched from AT&T fiber to Google fiber for the doubling of speed, and am very satisfied. My average download speed is 1900 GB, and average upload is 1400 GB through a 2.5 GB NIC and a 2.5 GB network switch. Thus far, Google Fiber is significantly more reliable than AT&T was,,,shows up mainly in my internal Linksys mesh wifi.
