Kansas City Residents Get Second Chance for Fiber
Residents of Kansas City who missed registration for the first roll out of Google’s super-fast Fiber internet service have the chance to sign themselves up for the service again.
As of Wednesday, Google’s Fiber internet is available for people who live within any one of the 180 areas within Kansas City that have already qualified for access. Those who missed the opening of Google Fiber or passed on the idea of 1GB internet when it was first introduced in 2012 now have the opportunity to jump on the bandwagon.
Eligible persons who are interested in subscribing to the super-fast internet service can sign up on Google’s Fiber web page or visit one of the Fiber locations on site both in Missouri or Kansas. New customers have up until December 22nd to sign themselves up, and Google expects the new internet connections to all be installed within the first quarter of 2014. The company also announced that new subscribers who opted for the Gigabit internet and TV plan would also receive a free Nexus 7 tablet.
The wave of fiber internet connections is fast becoming more and more prevalent around the country, with expansion on the cards for Google as well as other service providers. Fiber connections are also expected to become available to users in as yet unconnected areas of Kansas City by March 2014.
