Google is giving small businesses in need of super-fast Internet more options.
The Web giant on Tuesday announced it is transitioning away from the one-size-fits-all Fiber Early Access program it launched in 2014, and, in its place, has introduced three new fiber plans for your business needs. Small businesses in cities where Google Fiber is available will be able to pick upload and download speeds ranging from 100Mbps to 1,000Mbps.

The entry-level 100Mbps tier will set you back $70 per month while a 250Mbps option is $100 a month. The fastest and priciest option, 1000Mbps, is priced at $250 a month. Check out the chart below for a comparison of the three plans.
"We know that businesses come in different shapes and sizes," Google Fiber Product Manager John Shriver-Blake wrote in a blog post. "They have varying needs and would like the flexibility to choose a plan that best fits their needs."
Google also increased the number of static IP addresses available to businesses — you can now get up to 13.
Google Fiber availability is, of course, still quite limited. For now, these new plans are only available to eligible small businesses in Charlotte. Those in Kansas City, Provo, Austin, and Nashville, meanwhile, can still sign up under the Early Access program until July 31. Beginning Aug. 1, businesses there will be able to choose from one of the new plans or keep their Early Access pricing for a year.
Businesses everywhere else can check their address and sign up to be notified when Fiber becomes available in their area.
"We continue to be committed to providing fast, reliable service tailored to the needs of small businesses," Shriver-Blake wrote. "Our support team is available to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."
