The search giant announced today that it is launching a free internet service in the United Kingdom, which will allow people to make the switch to a cheaper broadband plan.
The service, called Chromecast, is currently only available to people in the U.K. with a qualifying internet connection, but Google said it plans to expand its network across the country in the coming months.
“We are thrilled to be bringing Chromecast to the U of K, and to offer it to people who have not yet had the opportunity to make this switch,” Google said in a statement.
“This will enable people to connect to Google’s massive, ever-expanding broadband network for the first time.
People who have previously been using Google’s free broadband service, for example, may be able to take advantage of Chromecast on the free plan for up to five months.”
The free Chromecast service will initially cost £5 a month, and will be available for a limited time.
However, it will be subject to a £2-per-month price increase starting later this month, Google said.
It will be free for anyone who is a Google subscriber in the new U.S. market, but the U,K.
carrier will charge a subscription fee of £1.49 a month for the service, according to Google.
Google said that if the plan works well, the service will become available to the entire U.G. market in a matter of weeks.
The company added that the service is not available in all countries, but will likely be available in “all parts of the world” by the end of the year.
Chromecast is available on Google’s Nexus devices, which have already proven popular with users, and on a number of other devices, including Chromebooks, Xboxes, and even a pair of Android phones.
Google plans to extend the Chromecast network in the future, but hasn’t set a date.
In addition to the free Chromesecast service, Google is also rolling out a new premium Internet-connected device called the Chroma, which is capable of doing everything a standard internet connection does.
Google also recently announced plans to launch a $10-a-month Internet TV service, which lets users stream content from services like Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.
Google is not the first company to offer free internet services, and it’s likely that other tech giants will follow suit in the near future.
However for now, it’s unlikely that anyone will pay £6 for a Chromecast internet plan, as Google said the device will be a “very limited” feature.
Google’s Chromecast Internet service will only work on devices that are certified by Google and will only support certain bandwidth, including speeds of up to 50Mbps.
Chroma is a much cheaper option, though.
The Chroma will be priced at just £10 per month, or £6 per month if you want to use it on an Android phone, Google added.
