5 More Google Fiberhoods Coming To Kansas City 80

skade88 writes "If you live in KC, Google is doing their part to make sure you get your daily fiber. They are launching their gigabit home internet service in five new areas in KC. From the article: '"In 2013, we're going to hit the ground running, finishing installations in Dub's Dread, and then quickly moving on to five more fiberhoods," the company wrote, using its invented term for zones where Google Fiber will be deployed. "Based on pre-registration results, the next fiberhoods on the list are Piper Schools, Delaware Ridge, Painted Hills, Open Door, and Arrowhead. And we have some more good news for folks in some of these areas—we've extended a few fiberhood boundaries slightly, so that more people can get Google Fiber. You can see the new boundaries below and on our website, where you can check to see if your home is now eligible."'"

    BTV is our airport code and a common shorthand for Burlington, Vermont. It's used as the hashtag on Twitter for our city, for example.

    100 gigs is nothing...with only legitimate usage i can go over that with netflix, youtube, gaming and video streaming(up/down)

    its sad, really, that you have to suffer such low limits. I've got comcast with their now-unenforced 250g cap. since they said they wouldnt enforce it, i stopped metering myself and found my 'normal' usage is actually around 550gb on a normal month, or 750 if i go down the dark and shady roads.
