For the past year, Google has been trying to decide what city would be the test city for its new initiative to roll out ultra high-speed broadband, delivering speeds more than 100 times faster than what we're stuck with now. The winner? Kansas City.
Google chose KC because they wanted "a location where we could build efficiently, make an impact on the community and develop relationships with local government and community organizations." Apparently, Kansas City was that place, much to the chagrin of every other place in America. I mean, come on! Who wouldn't want to get hooked up with free future broadband? But hey, enjoy it, KC. And let us know how it is.
