Google introduces Fiber Phone, a Google Voice-inspired home phone service
Google has introduced a new home phone service, Fiber Phone. The service will only be available in select areas, but will offer unlimited local and nationwide calling for just $10 a month, with the same affordable international rates as Google Voice already offers. You’ll also be able to utilize standard features like call waiting, caller ID and 911 services with ease. From Google’s announcement post:
For $10/month, you get unlimited local and nationwide calling, and the same affordable rates as Google Voice for international calls. You can keep your old phone number, or pick a new one. You can use call waiting, caller ID, and 911 services just as easily as you could before. Fiber Phone can also make it easier to access your voicemail—the service will transcribe your voice messages for you and then send as a text or email.
To start, Fiber Phone will only be available to customers who live in select Fiber cities. Google plans to continue to roll it out over time to residents in all of its Fiber cities. The installation kit from Google will include a Fiber Phone box that will make your existing home phone hardware compatible with the service.
