Might want to look into a download accelerator where you can download from multiple mirrors at one time.

Here's something to compare against. Change the video quality on this video to original, it took me 10 seconds to download.
Something went wrong. Please make sure you added the video correctly.

How is it so far? Are the boxes pretty fast and responsive or slow and clunky like TWC.

I've never had TWC, so I can't compare. Everything so far seems to be smooth. The wireless coming off the tv boxes (they act as wireless repeaters) is significantly slower. Fastest down/up speed I've seen is 25 Mb, and they are wireless N so they should be giving higher speeds. Granted they are connected to the network box via coax, so I'm wondering if running Ethernet cable through my house for them to connect back to the network box will improve that.

I was worried the stock wireless on those network boxes wouldn't be that great. Coax should be able to support more than 25 megs.

Do you know if you can configure any settings on those network boxes? Does the wireless do dual band(2.4 GHZ, 5.0GHZ)?

Coax should be faster, but I'm wondering if the TV usage is eating up a lot of the data speed.
Settings are pretty well locked down. It does run both 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz bands.

I avoid using coax as much as possible when I install uverse, so I imagine it would suck still even with google

Could you take a picture of the boxes and network when you get a chance? I'd like to see them

This is why I hate combo modem/wireless routers. Locked down and you can't upgrade the wireless part.

If I get too frustrated, I may just turn off the "google wireless" and install my own WAP.

Sweet, do you get similar results when using speedtest.net? or do you have to use Googles speed test?

Pretty sure he has to use Google's. IIRC, speedtest.net doesn't go that high.

Speedtest.net isn't fast enough to keep up. Shows my speed at about 25bps.

Google Fiber coming to Olathe






Google Fiber is bound for Olathe.




The much-hyped barely launched Internet and TV service, which has debuted in the Kansas City market, will be discussed at tonight’s meeting of the Olathe City Council, according to an agenda for the meeting.
An agenda for tonight’s meeting of the Olathe City Council includes discussion of an agreement that would pave the way for the fiber optic network to carry Google Inc.’s first foray into selling Internet access.
The agenda says the city has made an agreement for Google to “install, maintain, and operate up to a 1 gigabit fiber network in Olathe, and, potentially, a WiFi network.”
While the deal in some ways mirrors agreements made elsewhere in the Kansas City market, the agenda said that terms struck between Google and Olathe “provide much greater detail and clarity regarding several matters, including, …and right-of-way usage conditions, Google’s responsibilities to properly install and maintain its facilities, and Google’s obligations to relocate its facilities as a result of City infrastructure projects.”
Google was expected to make an announcement of its own later today.
Google has continually been careful not to say how far it might expand its service. It’s said it wants to make an impact in the Kansas City market, but has never promised that it would reach deep into the suburbs.
The company first announced it would launch Google Fiber in this market two years ago, promising hook-ups for Kansas City and Kansas City, Kan.
While it began home installations in October, only a handful of blocks in Kansas City, Kan., have yet to tap into its lines.
At the low end, it offers relatively slow broadband free for seven years after customers pay $300 for installation. At the high end, for $120 a month under two-year contracts, it offers cable-like TV programming and Internet hook-ups capable of pushing data at rates of 1 gigabit per second. Those top speeds offer downloads 100 times faster than most U.S. home service, and uploads 1,000 times quicker than the norm.
Its move to Olathe is mildly surprising because the company has been intent on keeping costs down by keeping the service area geographically compact. Beyond the two Kansas Cities, Google Fiber has only made agreements to sell service in the smaller northern Johnson County towns of Westwood, Westwood Hills and Mission Woods. It has not, for instance, cut a deal yet in the seemingly lucrative market in Overland Park.
Even making a deal with Olathe hardly means Google Fiber service there is imminent. The company’s plans have fallen behind schedule several times. By its latest reckoning, construction in a large, central swath of Kansas City and across Kansas City, Kan., will stretch to the end of this year. Then it will move to southern parts of Kansas City and areas of the city north of the Missouri River.
Yet even there, Google appears to be finding that wiring a community might take longer than it expected. Last summer, Milo Medin, the company’s vice president of access services, estimated broadly that it might take four months to hook up the first 10 “fiberhoods” — Google-defined neighborhoods that average about 800 residences. Google Fiber installations began in October, but work has only begun in seven “fiberhoods” and is not yet finished in any.
Medin only made his prediction when pressed, and said at the time it would be difficult to gauge the speed of the rollout. He also said that the pace would pick up as Google’s contractor learned from experience and beefed up its crews.
So Johnson County residents might still be waiting a few years to switch to Google.
For those areas where enough people sign up indicating an interest in the service — Google calls the initial signup periods “rallies” — the company says it will come in for a single, limited period and string fiber optic lines directly to homes. Yet in its first Kansas City, Kan., neighborhood, Google is giving a second chance to consumers who didn’t sign service contracts before their first deadline.
Customers who decline installations during those special periods, Google had said previously, will not have a second chance to tap into the network later.

Google Fiber is coming to Olathe, Kansas


Over the past few months, as we’ve rolled out Google Fiber in Kansas City, we’ve heard from thousands of people from across the country. It seems that folks really want what KC has — a great startup scene, an inventive community, and access to Gigabit speeds. Today, another city in the Kansas City area is getting the chance to join the growing Silicon Prairie — Olathe, Kan. A few minutes ago, the Olathe City Council approved an agreement to bring Google Fiber to their city. Olathe has become one of the fastest-growing cities in Kansas and has attracted an influx of new businesses and residents. They’ve all noticed what a great community Olathe is, and so have we. We think that Fiber and widespread Internet access will help to create jobs, grow local businesses, and make Olathe even stronger as it grows.
We still have a lot of planning and engineering work to do before we’re ready to bring Fiber to Olathe. Once we get those processes underway, we’ll be able to announce more about pre-registration and construction timing. We’ll be sure to publish an update as soon as we have it. This announcement doesn’t change our published construction schedule for eligible homes in Kansas City, Kan. and Central Kansas City, Mo.
Many thanks to the Olathe City Council and the people of Olathe for helping to make this happen. Hopefully, this is the first of several announcements that we'll be able to make about bringing Google Fiber to additional cities in the KC metro area; so stay tuned.

Going to be a lonnnnng time before it's operational in Olathe. They are still jacking with the original KCK and KCMO service. Then they promised South KC and KC North, then Mission Woods. I think they bit off more than they could chew as it's taking a whole lot longer than they thought.

Yes and no. Lots of other behind the scenes things that go into it that are holding installs up. Manpower and weather play into as well. Know KCK will get finished up soon and construction downtown KC preparing for installs is underway.

To your first point, though, you're correct. It will be at least a year before we see Fiber in Olathe seeing how these other locations are going.

Have they started laying fiber in KC North and South KCMO? I was assuming they haven't.
I'm also assuming it's going to take a year just to lay the fiber in Olathe alone seeing how spread out it is.

I don't believe so; also don't know what I can/can not say. Sooo, I'll just say they're getting close to that point for KC North.

Newer neighborhoods take longer because the majority of fiber is laid underground, so my part of Olathe will be slow, time consuming and expensive. The older parts where they can go with aerial fiber/attach it to existing power lines will be faster/cheaper.
