So-net Entertainment began offering its Nuro fiber-based service to residents in Tokyo and six surrounding areas, writes Dan Graziano for bgr.com. The service is available for $51 (Y4,980) per month with a two-year service agreement and a $535 (Y52,500) installation fee. Customers who apply online will have the one-time fee waived.

UploadThe new service upload speeds top out at 1Gbps and download speeds come in at 2Gbps, double that of Google Fiber. Although most users are unlikely to experience these speeds due to limitations of most consumer network adaptors, residents of Tokyo will still have access to speeds well above the rest of the world.

Google Fiber offers the fastest speeds in the United States with its 1Gbps service for $70 per month, available in some selected areas.
