  •  i was mowing my lawn last week (3+ / 0-)

    and I noticed a guy in a hard hat standing next to the telephone pole on the other side of my back fence.  Looked up and saw service trucks swarming the avenue a block over.

    I shut off the mower and asked if I could help him.  He said he was with Google Fiber and needed access to the pole.  Yay!  I thought.  This is about the last neighborhood in Kansas City proper to have it available.  He said it would be hooked up before the end of the year.  Good enough.

    Here's a story about how industrial-strength Internet speed helps an entire local economy.  

    Google Fiber spawns startup renaissance in Kansas City

    Not only will I get the incredible Internet speed but I'll finally be able to dump Time-Warner Cable - a double win.
