Google has received permission to expand its fiber service to Olathe, Kansas. Google Fiber provides infrastructure and sets up a fiber optic network in selected areas, and provides up to 1Gbps speeds to anybody purchasing its $70/month package. It also offers free internet at 5Mbps speeds, as well as offering an Internet and TV package for a $120/month subscription fee.
Google Fiber has been available in certain areas around Kansas City for some time, however until now, Olathe has not been covered. Thankfully for those in the Olathe area, permission was granted for the work to commence a couple of months ago. Google Community Manager Rachel Hack noted that there is is still "a lot of planning and engineering work" to complete before Google can give a set timescale for the rollout.
