Google 1GBps web hits Kansas City

Move comes after hundreds of cities across US applied for 1GBps web.

Kansas City will become the first US city to feel Google’s 1GBps love, after seeing off competition from over 1,100 other towns and cities in the States.

Google announced plans to build a number of 1GBps connections in the States last year and said it would pick one city to kick things off. It’s chosen Kansas as its first port of call, with the city getting a web connection 100 times faster than the US average. It’ll be installed by the start of 2012.

What’s more, Google says this is just the start of its plans for ultra fast broadband and that it’ll be looking to build more 1GBps networks throughout the US. But what we really want to know is when the UK will be getting some similar action.

Let us know what you think of Google’s move over on our Facebook and Twitter pages now.
