    Because Google is based in KC. Easiest city to start.

  10. That explains it. But their next move should be somewhere with a large clientele.

  12. Google is based in Mountain View, CA. No where near Kansas City. Get your facts right.

  13. Ummm...what?? Google is based out of California. Mountain View to be exact. KC was selected, presumably, randomly in all the applications it received back in 2009-2010. Waiting and wishing on Google Fiber right now would be a lot like waiting and wishing on the lottery.

  15. The reason they don't have it all over is because 1Gbps of connectivity to every single house is absolutely insane, especially a Residential network.

    The implications of doing this in large cities is crazy, but we all know Google is insane, so I guess we'll see!

    1. They have to buy that bandwidth. It's nearly impossible for them to make a profit from the prices that they advertise right now.
    ISPs have to buy bandwidth from other providers. In our business, the mix of providers they buy from is called a "network blend". Google Fiber actually has a pretty expensive network blend, so it's surprising to me that they offer up to 1Gbps speeds for only ~ $70 / month. So yes, this just concretes my point that Google is insane - But GOOD ON THEM for making a quality ISP that's actually bloody worth it!

    2. They have to deploy multiple Fiber-based "trunk lines" lines in a city. A fiber bundle can handle approximately 10Gbps of active traffic, which I'm sure Google probably puts as many houses on "1Gbps" connections as they can.
    The way residential networks work is basically this: They oversell. They install a certain capacity to your city/town and hope to hell that everybody isn't on the Internet at the same time. Any residential ISP makes INSANE amounts of profits. The way it looks, Google is better about this than most ISPs, but the issue there still exists.

    That's about all I can think of. All-in-all, good on Google for finding a way to make this, well, unbelievable feat possible. Making an ISP in the U.S. that's worth the money? Crazy.
