It will still be awhile before the Kansas City suburb gets the high-speed Internet, Google says
Google Fiber is hitting another Kansas City, Mo.,suburb, the online giant said Wednesday.
Grandview, Mo., will become the latest locationto have the high-speed Internet, joining other cities such as Austin, Texas;Provo, Utah; andShawnee, Kansas.
However, Google said in a blog post that it will still be awhile before it can build Fiber in Grandview as it needs to plan and engineer its network there first.
Google, which announced the Fiber project in February 2010, began construction of the network backbone in February of last year. The idea behind Google Fiber is for the company to build a commercial fiber-based high-speed broadband network that Google and others can use to test new business models and applications that need very fast connections -- upward of 1Gbps. Thousands of cities competed to be the first home of the future network. Kansas City won.
