Google High-speed Fiber for Communities Going to Kansas City

Google announced today that Kansas City, Kansas, was selected for their free high-speed broadband network project. The City of Alameda had applied to the program just over a year ago.

In an announcement, Google wrote that, “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.”

Google also released this video explaining the project and their decision.

    well, who is john galt, anyway? Normally, I would agree w/you on libertarian 1st principles, but in this about-to -go-bankrupt city, free market principles don’t seem to apply, in my lifetime, anyway. What do you think we have a Planning Board for, if not to give the citizenry self-determination to fend off the supervention of a master planner (like SunCal)? This isn’t “a few more”, it’s an absurd hogging of retail space that forces me to leave this city to find goods & services I actually use (like a konditorei).
