Gigabit Speeds for Overland Park Are Now A Reality
In case you hadn’t heard, Monday of last week, talks between Google and the City of Overland Park went from sour grapes to sweet nectar for OP residents as an agreement was made to bring the high speed Google Fiber to the area. It is only in the planning phase but this could be huge.
So what does this mean for the residents of Overland Park? How about blazing fast speeds for around the same price as the underpowered packages being offered by Comcast, TWC, and AT&T. For $70 a month subscribers can opt for gigabit high speed internet or can get up to 5mb free for up to 7 years with a deposit of $30-$300 (depending on area).
With speeds that fast you can now purchase and download an entire album in less than 10 seconds and a full length HD film in less than 3 minutes. Now to be upfront and honest Google can only provide gigabit speed over it’s own network so expect a drop in speeds but speeds will still be well over what you may be used to already. Watch out for Sign Up Dates!
Now would be a great time to have your computer cleaned and repaired in preparation for blazing fast speeds.
