Somebody's gotta have the inside scoop on Google Fiber launching tomorrow..??

https://fiber.google.com/savethedate/

Live broadcast over YouTube tomorrow. Anybody have any early news on this? Will it be available all over the Metro? How long will the waiting list be?

Anybody know anything? I'm impatient.

My neighborhood in OP is in the middle of signups. They gave us 6 weeks to hit our goal and we did it in 12 hours.

How long after the sign up period does it take to get installation going?

It took a good 9 months after I signed up to get the installation. They have to build everything out first. Unless they've changed how they do it, you'll be waiting a while.

I'm in Prairie Village, where signups ended May 19th. Just yesterday a crew ran the drop from the pole to my house. Just waiting for it to be terminated inside the NIU before I can schedule my install, so hopefully that happens in the next couple of weeks.

If I remember the timeline correctly, they built out the infrastructure in my area towards the end of winter, installed the convergence cabinets in early spring and then ran aerial lines shortly afterwards. Signups started the first week of April.

Considering I got an email in early June that said they expected home installations for my fiberhood to be complete at the end of winter 2016, I'm happy with the relatively quick turnaround.

They're just now starting the backbone in Belton Raymore. That will feed all the cabinets which will then feed the NIUs/homes. Pronably finish the backbone towards the end of this year.

They were doing signups a couple of weeks ago at the Price Chopper at 119th and Metcalf, but none were for neighborhoods around there.

It looks like GF has given into the pressure to offer a "real phone" offering. That's good news..

https://fiber.google.com/phone/

It looks like it isn't (yet) built into the network box but I'm sure it'll get there.


I'm happy with Ooma @ ~$4.00 a month (even though the Telo box did cost $99'ish), but it's nice to see Google coming into reality for serious teleworkers.

So, depending on what you do, there is usefulness to the gig service.

edit: also, i dont really hae anything to say about phone or tv service via google, as i do not have google fiber, but different gig service.
I know I'm super late to the party, but I just got Google Fiber a couple weeks back. I also built a new computer so had to re-download my Steam games.

The 4-5 GB games would finish downloading way before the DL speeds could even peak. I think I may have reached a peak at 99.4 MBPS on a 9GB game. I am not sure, though, because that was towards the latter part of of the DL.

Our kids are going to be beyond spoiled. I mean, personally, I feel like, in some respects, this is almost as much of a jump for me as was going from dial up to cable. In the very near future, it will be almost incomprehensible that downloading large files used to take a little bit of patience.

I never had any issues with XFINITY, but this is obviously some next level shit. I mean I was downloading games from Steam in under a minute.

Those bastards use some very cheap labor to put their conduits in. These dudes appear to be day labor folks that they are getting from some temp agencies. I am not sure how they have done it, but they have gotten around getting permits to run bores along major roadways and are basically just digging where ever they want here without worrying about what they hit. They've knocked out 5 or 6 of our big cables in the last two weeks because they don't feel the need to get locates before digging.

This is true, with regard to the labor. Unfortunately I know first hand.

I got the lower part of my driveway replaced due to their not-so-awesome contract labor.

I have come across a few of them and I can tell that their hiring standards are pretty subpar. They have also managed to knock out a few red light cameras in city, so I can't say their work is all bad.
