Kansas City the first city to earn Google’s high-speed Internet network

A whole bunch of cities including Spokane applied to be selected for Google's much-anticipated rollout of fiber (high-speed Internet) service.

The winning city is Kansas City, Kansas.  

A story on Mashable notes that depending on how that first city rollout proceeds, other cities may also be selected.

The stakes are fairly high for the metros blessed by the search company. Google will install a fiber network that provides 100 times faster data speeds than the typical U.S. Internet connection.
