Google last year announced a new project: to provide a community with Internet access more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have today. Insane, right? Well, they're following through with that wish. Google, after going through 1, 100 requests from cities around America chosen Kansas City, Kansas as the city to be upgraded.

 

 

Google will be working closely with local organizations, businesses and universities to bring next-generation web experience to the community. Obviously over the last decade, the massive increases in required bandwidth have changed - now more and more people are using more and more high-end services like streaming online video, video conferencing, etc.
