Last Year Google announced that it would be expanding its Google Fiber network, and for the first time the internet giants have expanded its Fiber Network to Kansas City plus it will be rolling out to five additional neighborhoods later this year, with promises of internet speeds way above broadband at an affordable price.
Google announced the expansion of its Fiber Network in Olathe, Kansas this week. The Olathe City Council approved of the expansion, according to Ubergizmo the expansion may be crawling at this point, but Google believes Olathe is a worthy addition as they believe the city fits the mold of locations that will take advantage of their service.
“Olathe has become one of the fastest-growing cities in Kansas and has attracted an influx of new businesses and residents,” Google Fiber community manager Rachel Hack wrote. “They’ve all noticed what a great community Olathe is, and so have we. We think that Fiber and widespread Internet access will help to create jobs, grow local businesses, and make Olathe even stronger as it grows.”
According to Google, its Fiber Network is a “different kind of internet” which starts at connection speeds up to 100 times faster than broadband, Google’s Gigabit Internet. It’s capable of delivering instant downloads, crystal clear high definition TV and endless possibilities, plans range between $70 to $120 per month. Unfortunately, Google’s Fiber Network may not be available in your neck of the hood anytime soon.
