Google Fiber 2

After launching the Google Fiber service in Kansas City homes, Google is looking to expand its coverage in the area by adding five new neighborhoods in the coming weeks. Google says that after a gradual start it has gotten into a good rhythm of installations and its customer support is improving too, therefore it is ready to add new areas in the list of Google Fiber-supported territories.

Google has already installed Fiber in Hanover Heights and Dub’s Dread. Now the company says that in 2013, after finishing installations in Dub’s Dread it will start installations in five new ‘fiberhoods’ which include Piper Schools, Delaware Ridge, Painted Hills, Open Door, and Arrowhead. In a blog post, Google explained that it has extended a few of the boundaries slightly to add more people to its coverage.

The Google Maps map found on Google’s blog page tells users if their area is included in the expansion or not. For those who have houses in the mentioned areas by Google, the company has released a list with registration deadlines. The installation of Google Fiber in the homes of those who have selected a plan will start shortly after the dates listed below.

  • Piper Schools — choose your plan by January 31, 2013
  • Delaware Ridge — choose your plan by February 14, 2013
  • Painted Hills — choose your plan by February 28, 2013
  • Open Door — choose your plan by February 28, 2013
  • Arrowhead — choose your plan by March 7, 2013gfiber

    out of all the places, why kansas? just curious

    • Why the hate? Im just waiting for them to expand out of Wyandotte into Johnson County so I can get in on this!

      • How was he at all “hating” in that post?…The word “hating” is seriously overused.

    • Why Kansas? Kansas is one area in the nation that has a demand for high speed Internet access. Google was saying the purpose of Google Fiber was to get more people access to the Internet so that Google as a company can grow. The more people who have access to the Internet and at faster speeds, the more they will use Google services. When you look at it like that, Kansas is a great place to start.

      It might be later than that if they are just finally getting to some other places in Kansas, unfortunately :( I don’t even know if my are in the US will get it by the end of 2013–I somehow doubt it. They need to roll this stuff out faster! I would jump on Google Fiber so freaking quickly. It’d be the perfect companion to my Nexus devices!

        Exactly! Although I have the Note 2, but it would still be amazing to have – I think they’ll be able to cover a lot of the US by the end of 2014, maybe they’ll start to hit Canada by 2015 =)

  • Google,
    Here in Israel the government wants faster networks, something like Google Fiber.
    We are waiting… ;)
