Direct from the Google Fiber Blog is news that they've starting laying the fiber for their 1Gbps Internet backbone. Google will be packing their bags and bringing thousands of miles of cables and connecting two cities together with a 1Gbps backbone.

The two cities? Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri. Google have said that each cable contains "many thin glass fibers, each about the width of a human hair." Google will take these cables and weave them into a fiber backbone, which is a completely new high-speed infrastructure that will catapult Kansas Citians' data at more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have today.

 

Google have said as soon as the infrastructure is complete they'll be connecting Google Fiber into the homes across Kansas City.

 

So, if you're a Kansas-based Internet user, you should be just a little bit excited right about now. Your Internet speed is going bye-bye.
