Google Fiber: Why does Kansas City get to go high-speed?
Super high-speed Internet comes to Kansas City, courtesy of Google. Business leaders hope lightning fast connections with spur innovation and jobs. Google looks to be expanding further from its original business of Internet searching.
The Google project will also be the cheapest super-fast connection in the country, and Google has added other enticements such as high-speed access for people that don’t have it, about one-quarter of Kansas City’s population. Anyone who doesn’t want to pay $70 a month for the one gigabit per second connection can pay $300 to connect their home to the network and then have free access to the Web at the current US average speeds for seven years – which Google says should increase property values.
Gigabit + TV $120/mo $300 waived construction fee
Gigabit Internet $70/mo $300 waived construction fee
Free Internet $0/mo $300 construction fee
(one time or $25/mo for 12 mo)
