Back in July, we reported on Google Fiber, a 1Gbps up/down Fiber Optic internet and television service for the Kansas City area. Pre-registration is now complete and interest has been phenomenal. 180 of the 202 Fiberhoods had enough pre-registrations to qualify for service, a whopping 89%.
On Thursday the 13th, Google plans to release a final list of Fiberhoods and the order of construction. Hopefully the resounding success in Kansas will spur development in other markets in the future. We’ll keep you posted because, we’re not going to lie, the thought of a 1Gbps connection makes us giddy.
