Word about Google’s experimental fiber network, dubbed as Google Fiber, surfaced a couple of years ago. And just as we were about to close its pages on our book, Google is now announcing that its mysterious project will be coming next week. Google is now sending out invitations to a yet-to-be-named event in Kansas City this coming July 26. “Google Fiber is coming on July 26. Look out for an announcement at google.com/fiber on July 26,” Google announced today via its official Google Fiber site.
The Mountain View-based tech giant previously revealed its plans two years ago to build a network with ultra high-speed broadband that’s 100 times faster than what people are using today. Earlier this year, Google announced that Kansas City will be the first to enjoy the new service. “The Google Fiber project is about making the web better and faster, but it’s also about making the Internet more accessible for people throughout Kansas City. Digital inclusion here is a priority for Google, and it’s clear that it’s also a priority for community nonprofits and the local governments,” Google said.
