Kansas Fiber expansion

8 Jul, 2014

Overland Park, Kansas, approves an agreement to bring Google Fiber to the city. The service delivers Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second (that’s 100 times faster than most U.S. connections), allowing an entire album of music to download in under six seconds, or an entire movie to be downloaded in 38 seconds. Google Fiber came to Kansas City in 2012, and a limited amount of surrounding cities also have the service in place.  The other two US cities with the service are Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah.  The service costs $70 a month, or $120 with TV service.
