Google Fiber in Kansas City

Google’s new venture has been in the planning phase for a long time. However, just last week, installation began. That’s right, Google Fiber is starting to connect homes in Kansas City to¬†affordable¬†super high-speed Gigabit internet and cable, or free internet (at today’s “standard speeds”) with a one-time construction fee.

If you’re like me, you probably mostly forgot about Google Fiber once Google decided not to go with Milwaukee as a test area. Perhaps, now, with the pilot deeply underway, there is now a chance that fiber connectivity will be available to a broader market, in time.

What do you think? Is Google Fiber a good thing for communities, or would it be too much of a hassle with all the constant construction during the fiber-laying phase?
