Google Fiber Comes to Olathe

Google ImageThe Olathe City Council has approved an agreement with Google to deploy Google Fiber, an ultra-high-speed, fiber-to-the-home network in the Olathe community. 

“We are excited to work in partnership with Google to bring this next-generation fiber optic system to Olathe homes, schools and businesses,” said Mayor Michael Copeland. 

Google Fiber offers an internet connection speed 100 times faster than today’s average broadband, paired with crystal clear high definition TV.

As in area cities, Google will build the Olathe Google Fiber network by demand, meaning that determined “fiberhoods” will get Google Fiber service once pre-registration goals are met.

Google has submitted applications for permits; however, the City has not received word regarding a rally to sign up "fiberhoods".  We expect that soon after the infrastructure is installed.

We will provide updates as they become available to us. Information will be published in the e-Newsletter and in the Olathe Link Newsletter
