nmpost writes: The recently announced expansion of Google Fiber into another Kansas City suburb has gotten a lot of press, and rightfully so. Google Fiber is coming to Olathe, Kansas, which is a town of about 125,000 residents. It sits roughly 30 minutes outside of Kansas City. Most importantly, though, the move shows that Google wasn’t kidding when they said Fiber was not just an experiment, and they hope to expand elsewhere. Google’s expansion should put the other major ISPs on notice. Google’s affordable fiber service has been a hit, and that runs contrary to what other providers have claimed about high speed access. Time Warner’s Chief Financial Officer Irene Esteves said that there was no demand for gigabit internet. If Google continues to grow, she and her company may soon have to eat those words.
That's the thing about people who think they hate computers. What they
really hate is lousy programmers.
