Re: Really?
mhhf1ve, spam and telemarketing filtering would be a great feature. This is great that Google is continuing to expand its reach but I am not interested in using Google fiber. I don't want to experience the learning curve and growing pains. I will stick with the industry leaders for now.

Re: Google Voice is awesome...
Yes I agree!

Call filtering can be so useful and really a time saver. It is strange to me that more businesses don't provide this feature. I'm thinking it would bring in more interested consumers.

Re: Google Voice is awesome...
I get simultaneous call forwarding with my provider, so that's pretty nifty.  I think call forwarding has become huge in the past few years.  And mobile providers have come around to call-blocking, finally.

Google Voice is awesome...
I do wish that more telco services were like Google Voice... (not just free, but offering the same features.) I don't know why more phone services don't provide call forwarding to other numbers. Or call filtering! Being able to route unknown callers to a spam folder is the best thing ever.

What is the benefit to Google here?
It seems strange to see this, given that there are numerous VOIP providers that exist already. Google could be just grabbing some minor revenue, but is it really worth it to Google? Other ISPs offer triple play and other such bundles for loyalty, but I don't think Google Fiber needs the loyalty tricks to keep its customers. (I assume most of Google Fiber's customers would not want to switch -- or can't because there are no other gigabit speed providers.)

Adding a home phone service seems like just another customer support issue for Google to take on... and perhaps some federal communications issues liability, too? 

I assume Google doesn't get any federal subsidies for phone connections.....?

Monthly Fiber Phone
I think that would be a good idea to offer the service of $10.00 a month for this fiber phone or is that how the service has to offer etc.

Re: Really?
@Michelle - I asked Siri what she thought:

Me: "Do you think Google is becoming Skynet?"

Siri: "It's your opinion that counts Vnewman."
