Google Fiber Could Expand to Johnson County Sooner Than Expected
Ever since Google announced Googe Fiber would be coming to Kansas City, there has been speculation as to how long it would take before the high-speed broadband would find its way to Johnson County. According to the Kanss City Star, the wait might be over with Google reportedly releasing the names of three neighborhoods--Westwood, Westwood Hills and Mission Woods-- in northern Johnson County that soon might enter the rally for fiber.
With these three areas lingering on the cusp of fiber, how much longer will it take for Google to expand their fiberhoods all over the suburban area?
