Today on Google’s official blog, the multi-national public corporation declared it has selected Kansas City, KS to be the recipient of their ultra high-speed network.

Last year Google announced this new project – “to provide a community with Internet access more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have today” – in an attempt to make the web better for users. Reportedly, nearly 1,100 cities “felt the need for speed” and responded to the project.

“In selecting a city, our goal was to find a location where we could build efficiently, make an impact on the community and develop relationships with local government and community organizations. We’ve found this in Kansas City. We’ll be working closely with local organizations including the Kauffman Foundation, KCNext and the University of Kansas Medical Center to help develop the gigabit applications of the future.”

But what does this development mean for Kansas City as the transformation from traditional broadband to ultra high-speed fiber optic connections? Will the city explode as the epicenter for all things IT?

We’re excited to see what the future brings.
