Not sure if you are eligible for the upgrade?
Not all customers with a Network Box are eligible for this upgrade. We’ll send an email or portal notification to notify eligible customers by late July 2023. If you’re not sure if you are eligible, you can log into your Google Fiber account to confirm if the upgrade is available for your Network Box.
Why should I switch from the Network Box?
The Network Box was originally created years ago to offer solid, reliable wireless connections for all types of devices in customers’ homes.
The Google Fiber Wi-Fi 6 Router meets the needs of many customers today: it provides Wi-Fi 6 to connect at higher speeds for Wi-Fi 6 compatible devices (which many new phones and laptops are).²
As we update equipment for our customers to Wi-Fi 6, we are discontinuing support for the Network Box.
