Google Fiber - 5 new Fiberhoods announced

On Monday, December 17 2012, Google announced further progression to its ambitious experimental project called Google Fiber, where it provides ultra high speed internet to residents in Kansas City, Kansas and Kansas City, Missouri.

The services are currently available in Kansas City homes, it was started initially in Hanover Heights and Dub's Dread, and now Google has announced 5 new locations 'fiberhoods' where Google is about to launch its services further.

Based on pre-registration results, the next fiberhoods on the list are Piper Schools, Delaware Ridge, Painted Hills, Open Door and Arrowhead.

The deadlines for listed areas by which the plans must be selected is as follows:
  • Piper Schools — choose your plan by January 31, 2013

  • Painted Hills — choose your plan by February 28, 2013
  • Open Door — choose your plan by February 28, 2013

The best thing is, those who don't wish to have a Gigabit Internet at their homes can go on with 5 Mbps download and 1 Mbps upload speed which costs nothing on a recurring bases but attracts a one time construction fee of $300 (or 12 monthly payments of $25) + taxes and fees.
