Q What is Google Fiber?
A Google Fiber is a gigabit Internet service boasting speeds up to 100 times faster than normal broadband, making activities such as video chatting and big file downloads easier. Designated neighborhoods - called fiberhoods - will be eligible for the service if a certain number of residents sign up for Google Fiber.
Q Which neighborhood is next?
A Google declined to say where’s next in an interview with the Observer. The company’s contractors use door-hangers to notify residents of upcoming construction. Before that, you should see crews marking where the utilities are on streets and sidewalks.
Never miss a local story.
Q How long will Google Fiber construction crews be in my neighborhood?
A Residents in Highland Creek and city officials in Kansas City say the construction takes about 1 to 2 weeks on streets.
