- Google Is Finally Installing Gigabit Fiber In Kansas City Homes - Google is starting to roll out their “fiberhoods,” in Kansas City, and they are doing it completely differently than any other service provider. According to Google: “We’ve found that the difference between dreading an installation and feeling like you had a good experience comes down to us caring about the details that matter the most to you. For example, we’ll show up when we’re supposed to-at the start of your appointment, not somewhere in the middle. We’ll clean up any mess; each installer carries a vacuum cleaner. And we’ll answer your questions and teach you about your devices-don’t be afraid to ask us questions, or to ask us to explain something again in simpler language.” I can’t wait for Google to roll out fiber in my town.
