Google today has finally revealed its pricing plans for Fiber in Austin, Texas. The company plans to open up sign-ups for the internet service next month in the city, and while it was previously believed that Fiber in Austin would cost the same as it does in Kansas City and Provo, the company announced today that there are some slight variations (via Multichannel).

The standard Gigabit+TV Fiber package will cost $130/month in Austin. For that, you get 150 channels and a DVR that records up to eight shows at once. Customers can either choose to sign a one-year contract or pay a $300 installation fee. The $300 fee can be paid all at once or split up into monthly payments of $25. In Kansas City and Provo, this same plan runs $120/month, but comes with a two-year contract.
Google will also offer a “basic” Internet service in Austin for free. With this service, you’ll get 5Mbps down and 1Mbps up. The same $300 installation fee applies to this tier, although it can also be broken up into $25 monthly payments.
Sign-ups for Fiber in Austin will begin next month, with a rollout happening not long after. Google will first rollout Fiber to its so-called “fiberhoods,” which is simply areas of the city that have the highest demand for the service based on initial sign-ups.
