That's a really cool looking Lego empire state building. Oh wait, it's just Overland Park giving a building like structure with it's lack of Google Fiber.

Sucks to suck.

I'm actually curious how they'll do the east side of JoCo. Will they be able to just run cable over the state line connecting it to south KC or have to do a complete new setup since it is a different state.

edit: By cable, I obviously mean fiber.

Just got installed today. So far the speeds are very nice. Got cable with the bundle as well, but no NBA channels. Blah. Otherwise, seems good to me.

Construction starts April 11th for my neighborhood. Starts is a relative term as the boxes are in and the fiber has been run over the last couple of years. My fiberhood qualified last week although we still have until the 11th to sign up. I'm hoping we can move up a few slots in that time. I had already signed up for it when I lived in waldo but sold my house literally 2 weeks before the install date last summer. Oh well, the wait has been worth it.

Google left a flyer on my door step saying they'll be in the neighborhood installing the network in the next few week and will be back in June to start doing individual installs. Hopefully I'll be hooked up pretty quick come June.

Got that in the mail about two weeks ago. The primary groundwork is done. I expect I'll see them in August or so.

Google’s blunt message to Overland Park: No fiber for you — yet


Don’t get your hopes up, Overland Park residents.



Keith Myers | The Kansas City Star Installers for Google Fiber are working in Kansas City, Kan., — but not Overland Park. And it may be a long, long time before they do. Buy Photo



Google Fiber does not appear headed your way anytime soon — even if you are an extremely prosperous community, the second largest city in the Kansas City area and the shining star of the Kansas jobs market.
Google Fiber project manager Kevin Lo was on speaker phone this week, talking to The Star’s Editorial Board, when I asked about the strained Google-Overland Park relationship.
After first evading a direct answer on when fiber would come to that city, Lo said this:
“We will see what happens when we’re finished up with the rest of Kansas City.”
Ouch.
A quick update about this touchy subject:
Last September, after many months of negotiations with Google Fiber, Overland Park officials delayed a final vote on an agreement. The city said it wanted to work out a few last-minute concerns that, it turned out, were unfounded.
But in a stunning turnabout, a Google representative at a council meeting in October announced that the company wanted an “indefinite continuance” in signing the pact to bring the high-speed Internet service to Overland Park. Surprised city officials agreed to wait.
In some corners, Google’s move was seen as the tech giant showing the rest of the world what happens when you dare to question it: You get ignored.
That delay is now more than five months old, and counting.
Some tech-hungry residents in Overland Park have taken to social media in recent months, often with barbed statements aimed at city officials for imperiling the future of fiber in the affluent and growing city.
However, considering that Google Fiber already has signed agreements with at least 20 area cities — and is installing fiber in some of those cities now, with many others on the list to follow — it could be a long, long time before Overland Park gets the upgraded service.
Overland Park spokesman Sean Reilly downplayed Lo’s recent comment, saying city and Google officials continue to be in touch.
He noted that residents in other large Johnson County cities that have signed agreements with Google Fiber — such as Olathe, Shawnee and Lenexa — haven’t received their promised hookups yet. And, Reilly continued, his city’s contracts are ready to be signed whenever both sides want to get it done.
A Google spokeswoman, following up on my questioning of Lo, responded in an email with a similar statement.
Wrote Jenna Wandres: “Despite the fact that we are focused on bringing fiber to other areas (south KC, Northland, and our other local expansion cities too), we have kept in contact with Overland Park. They’re in the loop about our local construction plans, and that we’re focused on other areas, for now — and that we’ll keep them updated about any future opportunities to discuss fiber with us.”
So all’s right with the world, right?
Except for this inescapable fact:
If Google really wanted to ease the concerns of many Overland Park residents, the company could simply sign the agreement right now with city officials.
That would be a photo opportunity for Mayor Carl Gerlach, who last fall had said, “We’re willing to wait as long as it takes.”
Five months later, he and his citizens are still waiting.
Signing the pact would show that the past had been forgotten, and Overland Park and Google were teammates on this project.
Except, again, that hasn’t happened yet.
So should Overland Park residents be sanguine about this matter and trust that — in their own good time — Google and Overland Park officials will kiss and make up?
Let’s hope so.
Google needs Overland Park, with its big base of data-using customers. And lots of Overland Park residents are hungry for Google Fiber.
The Google Fiber roll-out elsewhere is taking its sweet time, even in Kansas City, which has had a signed agreement with the tech giant for several years.
Just last week I ponied up my $10 deposit for the fiber, which may come later this year (next year?) to my east Kansas City neighborhood.
At least right now, it appears we are more likely to get the service before anyone in Overland Park does.

Google Fiber faces 'issues' as it seeks public rights of way


Google wants access to public rights of way for fiber and network cabinets -- and wants to lease additional public property for "network huts." ( (Ben Felten/Creative Commons))


















Google Fiber promises lightning-fast Internet service, quicker downloads and an array of new digital conveniences enabled by fiber-optic connections that run right into your home.
The company set politicians and netizens abuzz in February when it suggested it might bring that fiber to the Portland area, perhaps as soon as 2015. But building a faster network could invite years of disruption as Google installs networking equipment around the city and buries fiber along suburban streets.
The service could also necessitate new rules about what’s allowed in the public right of way – and open the door to other companies installing their own gear on public property.
“There’s issues,” said Portland city commissioner Steve Novick, who runs the transportation bureau, which oversees rights of way. “But we’re very hopeful we can work out the issues.”
Google announced in February that it wants to offer fiber service in Portland, Beaverton, Hillsboro, Gresham, Lake Oswego and Tigard – and in eight other metro areas across the country. Public officials from each of those cities are scrambling to meet Google Fiber’s May 1 deadline for information about local geography and regulations.
Google promises “gigabit” Internet service – downloads of 1,000 megabits per second, roughly 100 times faster than a typical U.S. download speed. It already offers service in Kansas City and in Provo, Utah, and is building a network in Austin.
Google hopes fiber will usher in a new era of Internet service, which the company could capitalize on with its ad-supported businesses. It also offers a companion cable TV service.
Portland officials, who have been pursuing a faster, more flexible alternative to Comcast and CenturyLink for over a decade, have embraced Google’s overtures. But they’re scratching their heads as they try to match the company’s stated requirements with city rules and resources.
Google, for example, wants to put small networking cabinets in the public right of way around the city. They’re small – two feet on each side and four feet high – but it’s not the sort of thing Portland currently allows.
And Google wants to install bigger boxes, what it calls “network huts,” on public property to house its equipment and fiber. Each is 12 feet by 28 feet, meaning they’re too big for the right of way along public streets.
Google estimates it will need one hut for every 20,000 homes served – Portland estimates that will mean 15 across the city, and one to five huts in each of the suburbs. Portland is currently reviewing zoning for properties across the city, looking for sites that could accommodate huts.

Utilities, or their customers, typically pay for access to the public rights of way. Portland is currently negotiating a franchise agreement with Google and officials have indicated they plan to levy a franchise fee -- but haven't said how much.

Neither the network cabinets nor the fiber huts present “insurmountable” issues, said Mary Beth Henry, who is leading Portland’s pursuit of Google Fiber as manager of the city’s Office of Community Technology.
“But nobody said it would be a cakewalk,” she said.
As city officials consider reworking the rules for Google, they’re also considering the implications if Google’s rivals seek the same treatment – and put their own networking equipment in public spaces.
“Our approach has been, thus far, that if we make some kind of policy change at the city it would be available to others as well,” Henry said.
The suburbs face an additional complication. While 80 percent of Portland’s phone, power and cable lines are on utility poles, Beaverton and other cities run primarily underground.
That means Google will have to dig trenches for its fiber, crossing parking strips and streets, messing up front yards, annoying neighbors and – for brief periods – snarling traffic.
Google will need permits for each dig, according to Beaverton public works director Peter Arellano. Those permits ensure that city inspectors can review their work and scout each site in advance, painting the ground to mark the location of existing water, gas and power lines.
Washington County has already been through this once. Verizon began digging up streets a decade ago for its FiOS fiber-optic network, which it later sold to Frontier Communications.
“In Verizon’s case they staffed additional city positions so we could meet that need,” Arellano said, funding inspectors and locaters to enable a speedy rollout. “They wrote the city a check,” he said, adding that Beaverton will pursue a similar arrangement from Google.
Beaverton has nearly finished compiling information for Google’s May 1 deadline, according to Arellano, and Henry said Portland is well along with its process, too.
San Antonio, another city where Google is contemplating fiber expansion, has already approved a boilerplate lease agreement for Google’s network huts. Henry said she expects the Portland City Council will take up the issue on April 23, though that vote wouldn’t authorize the huts at any particular site.
And, Henry said, Portland is on schedule in preparing other data that Google has requested and will have it uploaded to the company’s servers well before the company’s May 1 cutoff – just in case, she said wryly, just in case bandwidth issues delay the transmission.
“We’re on target,” she said, “and we will make the deadline.”

Default Shawnee will be the first city in Johnson County to get Google Fiber

Shawnee will be the first city in Johnson County to get Google Fiber

http://www.shawneedispatch.com/news/...-fiber-networ/



Quote:
Figuring out when Google Fiber services will finally be available in Shawnee has turned into a game of connect the dots.

While Google officials have remained tight-lipped on plans to deploy their fiber network, visible signs Google is coming can be seen throughout the city.

On March 20, crews installed the first fiber hut on a specially made concrete pad behind Fire House No. 71 off Quivira Road.

A second fiber hut was installed Thursday near the entrance to Monticello Springs Park.

A Fiber Hut is an integral part of Google's fiber network and is where thousands of glass fibers pass through the device that receives and transmits signals between an electronic device and the Internet.

The city provided Google with land for the huts in exchange for providing its services to Shawnee. Google's application is 100 times faster than today's average broadband speeds.

Crews battled high winds, which were gusting up to 40 mph, to hoist and place the fiber hut at Monticello Springs Park in position. It took crews about an hour to get the hut secured.

Craig Young, a Google engineer who was on hand for Thursday's fiber hut installation, said Google is definitely coming to Shawnee.

“Shawnee will be the first city in Johnson County to get Google Fiber,” he said, adding in three to four months people should really start to notice Google in their neighborhoods.

While installing fiber huts is one of the initial steps in deploying Google's fiber network, Young said laying the conduit and fiber is by far the most costly and time-consuming portion of the project, which still remains to be done.

Though Young could not comment on when exactly Google's fiber will start going into the ground, the city recently approved staff plans to partner with Google's contractor as it deploys the company's core fiber routes.

In particular, the city will lay its own conduit and 42-strand fiber cable as Google is running its fiber down Quivira Road to 95th Street in Lenexa.

By partnering with Google's contractor the city expects to save $60,000, or 75 percent of the cost of the city doing the job on its own.

Mel Bunting, the city's information technology director, said the city's fiber is needed to connect city-owned facilities in the future.

“It's an investment in what may happen regionally in the future regarding technology,” Bunting said.

Paul Haugen, the county's chief information officer, agreed with Bunting, saying Shawnee is wise to take advantage of putting fiber in the ground while Google is footing most of the bill.

“Where this fiber comes out puts us in a rocks throw of Johnson County fiber,” he said. “It gets us much closer to getting Shawnee onto a truly connected community here in Johnson County, and that's our goal.”

As Google gets closer to deploying its fiber network, Young suggests residents check on the Google Fiber website to learn when signup for the service will begin.

Like was the case in Kansas City, Kan., Young said, Google plans to create Fiberhoods in various areas of the city where houses are grouped together.

So many households in a Fiberhood must express interest in Google Fiber services before the company will green light any build out of its network.

Young said it is important to remember just because someone expresses interest in Google Fiber through its website doesn't mean that person is required to sign up for service.

“It just shows us the interest is there,” he said, adding it's always wise to get in on the first go-around because that might be the only opportunity provided.

The costs of Google services will likely be similar to those charged in Kansas City, where customers can receive 1 gigabit of upload and download speed and 200-plus TV channels for $120 a month, plus taxes. The cost for a gigabit Internet connection runs $70 a month, plus taxes. A free 5 Mbps Internet option is available for a one-time fee of $300 to run fiber to the home.

Matt Schmitz, the city's senior engineering technician, who is helping oversee the project for the city, said as a resident of Shawnee he, too, can't wait for Google Fiber services to finally arrive.

“The biggest thing we need now is a few more months of patience,” said Schmitz, who recently met with the Google Fiber team for a kick-off meeting. “Just a few more months of patience and everyone will be rewarded.”

I can see one of these fiber huts from the front door of my office. My house is literally 30yds into Lenexa from Shawnee. I hope Lenexa follows closely behind.

Google Fiber crosses off line on Nashville checklist

For Nashvillians clamoring for the speedy arrival of Google Fiber, there is a new logistical milestone to track: fiber hut approval.
In an effort to move forward with potential plans to bring its high-speed Internet to Nashville, Google Fiber now needs Metro’s approval to build shed-like structures – called “Fiber huts” – in and around the city.
Nashville is the second city to consider licensing for fiber huts since Google Fiber announced it was exploring nine metro areas for its fiber-optic network that is as much as 100 times faster than basic broadband speeds, according to the company. San Antonio’s city council approved a hut license agreement in March.
Google Fiber wants permission from Metro to install the huts on city land; in exchange, Google will pay the city an annual fee based on square footage of each hut. The idea is to choose “unobtrusive” locations, such as unused portions of parking areas, so the huts are not in the city’s way, according to Google Fiber spokeswoman Jenna Wandres.
The fiber huts serve as the network’s switchboard, housing devices that receive and transmit signals between computers and the Internet. They are typically 22-by-11 feet, and dozens will be needed in and around the city if Google chooses Nashville for expansion.
Gaining city approval for fiber huts is one of many items on the Google Fiber checklist that the city is working on before the company determines if installation is feasible in Nashville. The agreement will be up for first reading at Metro Council’s April 15 meeting.
The agreement does not specify where the huts would be located. Wandres said Google will work with the city on where to put them once a decision is made on expansion.
