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."'"

    For those of us in the telecommunications industry, what type of FTTH deployment are they doing? For that matter, who's gear are they using? Calix, Ericsson, Occam, Adtran, or something homegrown?

    I don't understand why Google is strategically selecting the areas of Kansas City with the lowest incomes and populated with the least amount of technical people. Johnson County, Kansas was ranked #9 best county to live in by Money magazine in 2012 and it looks like Google is intentionally avoiding them. I seriously don't get it.

Money will say more in one moment than the most eloquent lover can in years.
