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.

Wait, does that mean HBO could be included as part of the package? That would ****ing rule.

Hell, I would gladly pay the $300 construction fee for the free service. That is only a little bit less speed than what I have now.

As someone who has a little experience in this field, I'd say that Sept. 2013 goal isn't too far off. It's not the cost of the fiber itself, it's the electronics that are expensive. If they're using a pre-subscribe and hitting you for $300 construction costs, that makes it pretty easy to lay out the network.

I would say that doesn't even begin to cut into the costs but that is just a guess. They do however seem to be efficient in how they are rolling out and the fact that they are making most everything.

But they're waiving the $300 fee for everyone who gets on a contract plan.

You are correct about the costs, but it does show good faith on the part of the customer/fiberhood. That being said, the fiber is not the expensive part, it's the electronics. The key is to get your footprint in an area. I would guess that waiver is only for a short time.
BTW, I did see the contractors in KCK on Leavenworth Rd., working between 83rd and about 90th Wed. morning.

A CS rep in chat told me their plan is to fiber all of KCK and KCMO by Sept. 2013.
Well, shit. CS Rep told me wrong. Only the neighborhoods that qualify in this rally will be done by Sept. 2013.

I seriously doubt the electronics are the expensive part.
