Google announced on Tuesday that it's rolling out its superfast WiFi, Google Fiber, to four more metro areas: Atlanta; Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina; Charlotte, North Carolina; and Nashville, Tennessee. Google Fiber, which is up to 100 times faster than the average broadband in the U.S., is currently available in Austin, Texas; Provo, Utah; and the Kansas City metro area.

Just how fast is Fiber? Really fast. It's up to 50 times faster than 20 Mbps broadband, as you can see below:

Fiber is up to 200 times faster than 5 Mbps broadband. Here's a demonstration of that:

Google Fiber costs $70 a month for up to 1,000 Mbps WiFi speed with no construction fee. The company provides basic 5 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload speed for free with a $300 construction fee. There's also a more expensive plan that includes cable TV.

In comparison, Comcast charges $29.99 a month for 25 Mbps, $59.99 for 105 Mbps and $89.99 a month for 150 Mbps.
