Grandview, Missouri Gets Approved For Google Fiber

Grandview MO

An area called Grandview in South Kansas City, Missouri received approval yesterday for Google Fiber. The city’s board voted to bring the service to their town, but much like every other city that is getting approval, we don’t know when exactly roll out could take place. Google says they still have lots of planning and engineering to do first, so it could be quite a while.

Let us congratulate the newest members of our American population to be graced with Google’s Fiber service. Hey Google, I hear Portland would be totally awesome with Fiber.

    Fairlawn, VA.

    We have one cable provider. $130 for 50 mbps.

    I would feel a little better if there were at least choices. Cable operators are the worst. Usually you have one option and that’s it. At least there is competition with TV service.

    This may seem random but I think Google Fiber being in the Kansas City area is because Google Wallet comes on Sprint phones preloaded. Since Sprint is headquartered in the area they may have this deal with Google to somehow bring Google Fiber to all of the surrounding areas. I know I am probably wrong but its just a thought…

      Sprint is headquartered in Overland Park – the only place in Kansas City without Google Fiber.

    I’d really love to see this take off and slap these greedy Internet/cable service providers in the face.

    Torrance, CA is the perfect spot.

    I’d be pissed if I lived in one of the many small areas surrounded by Google Fiber that didn’t have it available.

    great another podunk town…google why not a real city?

      Maybe they want make sure it works in a smaller market instead of going somewhere big and possibly screwing up on a large scale for everyone to see.

        i know.. but still seems so unfair haha.

          HMM, wonder how much fiber optic wire would I need to plug into Grandview and run it all the way to my house in St.Louis, any discount fiber optics out there?
          Maybe I can get my neighbors to chip in if I promise them free wifi afterwards.

      It’s much harder to dig in real cities.
      I’m pretty sure big old cities (NY, SF) will be ones of the last to get Google fiber.

      These kind of comments get pretty annoying. Living in a large city does not entitle you to get every new thing first.
