Kansas City has become the center of tech startups thanks to Google Fiber

Google Fiber puts Kansas on the map once more, now for tech startups

I've just moved house and I'm stuck with piddly 4Mbit ADSL, which isn't too bad, but nothing quite like Google's Fiber service that has rolled into Kansas City.

The Associated Press is reporting that thanks to Google's Fiber service, it has turned Kansas City into a huge attraction for tech startups who want to jump onto the fastest Internet access in the US. The AP has reported that several startups have popped up in Kansas City, "working on their ideas for the next high-tech startup".

 

The AP cites one startup residence, which has been called the "Home for Hackers" that provides entrepreneurs "a deal that allows them to live rent-free for up to three months "while they develop their business plans". The Home for Hackers has three spots specifically reserved for entrepreneurs and an additional bedroom set up for "fiber tourists who want a place for a day or two where they can download anything faster than they could elsewhere."
