Google Fiber’s Landline Complements High-Speed Broadband Service
Cloud-connected phone includes unlimited calling and voice transcription
High-speed broadband service Google Fiber has expanded its connected product offering by introducing a landline phone service that offers unlimited nationwide calling, call waiting, caller ID, and voice-to-text transcriptions.
The service, which is available for $10/month to Fiber users, can sync with existing phone numbers and forward calls to connected laptops, tablets or mobile phones. The innovation targets individuals, families and businesses who still rely on landline services for personal and professional communication. It also helps Fiber to compete with cable and telecom companies’ Internet-TV-cable bundle packages.
