Google has begun to connect US homes in Kansas City to super-fast broadband, offering residents speeds of up to 1Gbps (gigabit per second).

However, it will need to convince consumers that they would benefit from access to such fast speeds.


How much convincing will it take the current video streaming generation? Anything that eliminates buffering and pauses is an easy sell. Problem is most people are going wireless and the current cable system can easily support the wifi ecosystem.

Gamers are another easy sell as downloading big games from online services vs. waiting on DVDs from Gamefly is a real no brainer.

KC was a good choice as it's always been a rapid adopter of high tech as I remember when I lived there before the internet we had tons of BBS's and then fidonet and everyone was buying computers and getting online as quick as they could.

As long as 1Gb speeds don't also come with 250Gb caps like the cable companies have as that cap could be used in less than a couple of hours.
