Google continues Fiber expansion, Shawnee Kansas is one of the luckiest cities on earth

Google Fiber is coming to Shawnee Kansas as expansion of its gigabit internet service continues

By: Charles Gantt from May 3, 2013 @ 13:12 CDT

Yesterday Google announced that it will be bringing its gigabit internet service to the city of Shawnee Kansas, which is right outside of Kansas City. This makes for the 4th city to get Google Fiber in the last year.


Google did not release a date in which the service would be switched on, and it is most likely still a while away as planning, engineering and red tape will have to be dealt with.

In any event, the expansion of Google Fiber can only be seen as a good thing. Maybe in the next 10 years, Google will have covered enough of the country to either wake antiquated ISPs like Comcast, or put them out of business altogether.
