Default Anyone else here getting Google Fiber?

Signed up for both the gigabit internet and TV service. Should be installed next spring or summer. Then bye bye Time Warner Cable! Anyone else?

If you have questions about Google Fiber I'll try to answer them.

If they had it available in NYC, I would be all over it. Unfortunately, they do not have it available here.

I've never heard of it until now. Not yet in my area either (STL).

Naw, I thought we would meet at your house for ribs, beer and sweet, sweet fasterNet night twice a week. Do you have enough chairs and clean glasses? If not, call me and I'll hook you up. Call me at area code 801.

Kansas City is a effectively a public beta test for Google gigabit fiber. Kinda weird, since I was a early beta tester for TWC internet service many years ago. I remember how great it was to get rid of dial-up back then. Ahhhh... Well, GF should be a similar leap in performance - killer compared to TWC!

No doubt if it goes well here - and customer response so far has been good - Google has plans to expand quickly. So it may be in your neighborhood in a couple of years. Then we can meet virtually for ribs and beer.
