Google Fiber Installations In Kansas Homes Started


After months of building a brand new Fiber infrastructure, Google said Tuesday is it starting to connect homes in Kansas City to Google Fiber.

The installation will have two phases. First, Google will pull Fiber from the street to the side of a house, and the in-home installation follows.

"If you live in Hanover Heights and see a new box on the side of your house (and have gotten a Google Fiber sticky note on your door), look for an email or phone call from us in the next few days to schedule an appointment," wrote Alana Karen, director for service delivery at Google Fiber.

Google said in February, 2010 that it planned to build and test ultra high-speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the U.S., with 1Gbps fiber-to-the-home connections.

The rollout of the 1Gbps service will cover some parts of Kansas City, Mo., and neighboring Kansas City, Kan., which won out over 1,000 cities that applied for the service in 2010.

Gigabit Internet is priced at $70 per month, while high-speed Internet bundled with TV costs $120 a month, according to Google. Free Internet at 5Mbps downstream is available for a construction fee of $300. Users subscribing for a TV service also get a free "Storage Box" with 2T bytes of storage for recorded shows, 1TB of cloud storage, and a Nexus 7 Android tablet to use as a remote.
