Austin to go through same Fiberhood system as Kansas City
Google will be giving residents of Kansas City another chance to sign up for Google Fiber. The second chance to both the Kansas and Montana versions of Kansas City is accompanied by more details about the company's rollout to surrounding areas, as well as its fiber network construction project due to start in Austin, Texas.
Residents in the 180 areas of Kansas City that are qualified for Google Fiber that have yet to sign up can do from now until December 22nd, with those doing so this month expected to be installed by spring 2014. Households in Kansas City North, South Kansas City, Gladstone, Grandview, and Raytown will be able to go through an expanded Fiberhoods registration process from March.
In Austin, the same sign-up procedure as the Kansas City registrations will take place, with Fiberhoods being given a specific sign-up goal before being built out from the cabinet. Though Google warns that the window for registrations will only be open for a few weeks, Google has yet to reveal when exactly this will be.
