Google Fiber coming on July 26, says Google

In March 2011, Google announced that it had picked Kansas City, as the inaugural site for its “Fiber for Communities” program. The company is planning an announcement next week in the City about its ultra-high-speed Internet network, but has declined to give more details.

The website of fiber.google.com will ask you to subscribe to more posts by entering your email id. The company didn’t even say where the 10:30 a.m. announcement will take place, instead referring to its blog and a note that says Google Fiber is coming on July 26.

The “Fibre for Communities” program is expected to deliver Internet access 100 times faster than broadband connections offered by telephone and cable companies. The company has been adding fiber lines on both sides of the state line for several months after saying last year the metro area would be the first in the nation to get its broadband service. More than 1,100 cities throughout the country made bids to become a test site for the company’s network, which would provide Internet connections of 1 Gbps.

In May 2011, the company said it had reached a deal with Kansas City, to run the high-speed fiber optics across the Missouri River and into the city. The first customers were expected to go online sometime in the middle of this year. A spokeswoman for the company told The Associated Press that Google wasn’t revealing much in advance so it could make a big splash July 26.

    It’s official — as promised, Google Fiber has launched in Kansas City on the 26th. After months of building its Fiber infrastructure in Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO Google is now ready to connect Kansas Citians to Google Fiber’s ultra-fast Internet and crystal clear HDTV.

    Google Fiber is different—and getting it is different too. For the who would like to connect their homes to Google Fiber, one first need to pre-register at google.com/fiber and pay a $10 fee. Google have said – “Pre-registering matters—if your fiberhood doesn’t reach its goal by September 9, you will not be able to get Fiber.”
