Yesterday Google announced that it’s super-fast high speed Internet service will be coming to Kansas City, MO. In a blog post titled “Everything’s up to date in Kansas City“, Google says that residents of both KCMO and KCK will have access to their service starting in 2012. I can not tell you how excited I am, especially since I work in digital marketing. I don’t think anyone really knows what to expect once they start deploying the network, but for now aspirations are high. I mean, who doesn’t want internet that’s 100 times faster than what they have now? Anyway, check out this video Google did to tease us about their ultra high-speed network.
