Microsoft Surface USB-C to Ethernet and USB Adapter. This $55 adapter is compatible with all Surface models with built-in USB-C port (e.g. Surface Book 2 and Surface Go) and provides both a full-sized USB-A port and a 1 Gbps Ethernet port.

Microsoft  Surface USB-C-to-USB Adapter. This $20 adapter is likewise Compatible with all Surface models with a built-in USB C port and provides a single full-sized USB-A port.

Why these adapters weren't mentioned in Microsoft's Surface Go announcement this week is unclear. Likewise, they are not available for pre-order from Microsoft yet, which is doubly-curious.

Note, too, that any USB-C adapter or dongle will work just fine with Surface Go. You don't need the Microsoft ones.
