Google | Testing fiber phone service
The rollout of Google Fiber, the search giant’s initiative to give select cities high-speed Internet access, could be about to add a service that would dramatically enhance the offering: phone service.
Invites for a new service called Google Fiber Phone went out to select users recently with messages promising call screening, a do not disturb feature and spam filtering.
Currently, Google Fiber is available in Atlanta, Austin, Charlotte, North Carolina, Kansas City, Missouri, Nashville, Provo, Utah, Raleigh–Durham, Salt Lake City and San Antonio.
The invites for the phone service, offered to members of Google’s “Fiber Trusted Tester” program, were surfaced on Friday in a report from the Washington Post.
