Google’s very active rollout of Fiber Internet is making its way to Shawnee, Kansas, adding yet another city to the search giant’s growing portfolio. Following a city council vote, Google announced the news but refrained from sharing an estimated timeframe when residents could expect the gigabit speeds. The company said a lot of planning and engineering work still needs to take place before Fiber is available.
Fiber has been an experiment that’s sparked positive reactions throughout the U.S. In addition to Google’s own service moving to Austin, Texas and Provo, Utah, other small town companies have stepped up to announce gigabit plans, and even AT&T is onboard with the cause. Larger providers in bigger markets will likely take more convincing, but it’s good to see Google continue on its Fiber journey.
