Google Fiber Coming to Olathe
On March 19, the City Council unanimously voted to approve an agreement with Google to deploy Google Fiber, an ultra-high-speed, fiber-to-the-home network.
“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.
