Shawnee, Kansas Is The Next City To Get Google Fiber

 
I have never wanted to live in Kansas so badly. The Google Fiber Blog has revelaed that the next city selected to receive Google’s blazing fast and affordable fiber optic service will be Shawnee, Kansas…right around Kansas City, where it all began:
 
This evening, the Shawnee City Council voted to bring Google Fiber to their city.
 
Shawnee, which is right outside of Kansas City, is known as a tight-knit community and a great place to do business. We’ve also been impressed by Shawnee’s vision to keep their citizens informed and involved using the Internet. Recently, the City modernized their website, so that locals can easily access city info—from crime maps to fiscal reports to streamed audio of city council meetings.
 
This is a great example of how access to information via the web can help make communities stronger. Google Fiber—and widespread connectivity throughout Shawnee—will be a great complement to the great work the City is already doing.
 
We still have a lot of planning and engineering work to do before we’re ready to bring Fiber to Shawnee, so we don’t have an estimate for when service will be available yet. We’ll be sure to publish an update here as soon as we have it.

 
Meanwhile, the rest of the country is patiently twiddling their thumbs.
