Large majority of Kansas City neighborhoods sign up for Google Fiber

Google sees just under 90% of eleigible neighborhoods qualify for Google Fiber

It's not clear whether Google's advertising or neighbor's canvasing is responsible for the large amount of neighborhoods that have qualified for the service, but one thing is clear: nearly 90 percent of eligible neighborhoods have have signed up for the new super-fast fiber optic Internet connection from Google.

Google has released figures on its blog that at least 180 out of 202 "fiberhoods" have qualified for the service and Google is still verifying requests, so that number is likely to increase. Of course, not every single neighborhood will qualify, and this could leave those users out in the cold until sometime next year.

 

Google Fiber's pre-registration was announced six weeks ago. For $70 a month, customers will get up to 1Gb/s download and upload speeds. For $0 a month, users can get 5Mb/s down and 1Mb/s up. All they have to do is pay the $300 construction fee as bringing fiber to your door isn't cheap. For $120 a month, users can get the $70 Internet, plus TV.
