Two 'Fiberhoods' already reach Google Fiber goals

Posted By on Thu, Jul 26, 2012 at 3:10 PM

The Google video above explains how Google Fiber's "Fiberhood" competition to determine which neighborhoods will be the first to get the incredibly fast internet service. Residents that want Fiber must preregister with Google and pay a $10 fee. Each Fiberhood has a goal to reach based on the amount of residents in them. On September 9, Google Fiber will announce which neighborhoods will get the service first. Also worth noting: Schools, libraries and government buildings within Fiberhoods will receive free Fiber.

And with registration only being open for about three hours, the Roanoke Fiberhood is the first in KCMO to reach its goal of 5 percent of residents signing up. On the KCK side, Hannover Heights was the fastest to the goal.
