Google Explores Adding Video To Kansas City Fiber Projects
Google is At It Again
Google may compete with multichannel-TV providers in adding video and voice service to its high-speed broadband pilot project in Kansas City, Mo., and Kansas City, Kan., according to a published report which described the company's talks as exploratory. Google has hired cable-TV veteran Jeremy Stern to lead the video project in which the company has held talks with major network owners such as Walt Disney, Time Warner and Discovery Communications.

What is Google doing in Kansas City?
We plan to build an ultra high-speed broadband network in Kansas City on both sides of the river. Our network will deliver Internet speeds of up to 1 gigabit (or 1,000 megabits) per second. That's more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today.
Why did Google choose Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri?
Nearly 1,100 communities across the country expressed interest in this project. Our goal was to find a location where we could build efficiently, make an impact on the community, and develop working partnerships with the local government, utility and community organizations. We believe we’ve found this in both Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri.
