Google Inc.’s plan to bring ultra-fast Internet connections to Kansas City, Kan., will be extended across the state line, and on roughly the same timetable, sources told The Kansas City Star.

Just wanted to make you guys aware that Google is taking Fiber Optic to both sides of Kansas City (Kansas & Missouri) if you wasn't aware of it..

Google will give Schools & Municipal Building FREE INTERNET too! Wow!

That means if your broke butt can't afford it, head down to your local library!

Wifi FTW!

Of course this is suppose to roll out in 2012, can't wait to see pricing though.

I notice they just installed a line to my building 2 days ago, and I thought something was suspicious cause the line is THICK!

I know there was a post about Google coming to KC, KS, and this article is rather old, I'm just trying to be informative, that's all..

I for one cannot wait to have 1 Gb/s Internet WHOOSH!

Watch out BF3 Players, I'm going to be lagging you HARD!

Heh. We have had fiber for a while although the 1GB plan is really expensive. I have 50/50 now though.

Not fair, but an experiment by Google to brainwash people and retrain them to think Google is great. Wish I had fiber instead of cable, DSL, or WiMAX.

That's pretty epic, Hopefully Google revolutionizes internet access like they have done to everything else and that some ISP's where I live can learn a few things, because I hate these caps!

No offense, but google has created lots of amazing ideas and this is just another one of googles good ways of pushing us into the future. The internet in the US is absolutely HORRIBLE. I know the US is big, but were also rich, so I think somewhere in Obamas 2 trillion dollar bills, we could have some internet improvement in out infrastructure.
