Broadband, Google, Internet, Tech Digest news

Think your Virgin Meda or BT fibre optic connection was fast? Think again; Google have officially confirmed Kansas City as the first town to get their 1GB/sec Google Fiber network.

“After a careful review, today we’re happy to announce that we will build our ultra high-speed network in Kansas City, Kansas,” Milo Medin, Google’s VP of Access Services, wrote on the Official Google Blog.

“We’ve signed a development agreement with the city, and we’ll be working closely with local organisations, businesses, and universities to bring a next-generation web experience to the community.”

Kansas City residents will be able to use the network from early next year, with the service spreading out to other US cities after the trial run.

There truly is no place like home if you live in Kansas City.
