    KANSAS CITY, Mo./NEW YORK (Reuters) - Google Inc unveiled itsGoogle Fiber broadband Internet service in Kansas City, Missouri, on Thursday, promising access speeds more than 100 times faster than some of the fastest available from traditional U.S. cable and telecommunications companies.
    The new Google Fiber TV service will be priced at $120 a month for a package of major broadcast networks, 1 gigabyte per second Internet speeds and 1 terabyte of cloud storage.
    For $70 a month the service will not include the traditional TV channels.
    The new advanced service will offer features such as the ability to record eight TV shows at a time and store up to 500 hours of high definition programming. The user can use a tablet or smart phone as a voice-activated remote control if the user wants. Google is offering its Nexus 7 tablet with the Google TV app to early users of the service.
    Google Fiber TV will allow users to search live channels, Netflix, YouTube, recorded shows and tens of thousands of hours of on-demand programming.
    The new service will also be available to residents of Kansas City, Kansas.
    "The Internet is a huge positive force, and yet we are at a crossroad," said Google Chief Financial Officer Patrick Pichette, who has played a lead role in overseeing the Fiber project. He said Internet speeds had leveled out for broadband since around 2000, and Google would making it 100 times faster.
    "We at Google we believe there is no need to wait," he said.
    The download speeds would be around 1 gigabyte a second, according to Google executives who were presenting a demonstration.
    Google invested in building out fiber in Kansas City, Missouri in 2011 after inviting cities back in 2010 to help identify communities that would be interested taking part in the project.

    I live here and it sucks balls. It really is the worst piece of shit place I've ever lived. People are boring. Food is boring. Entertainment is boring. And it's hot as fuck. We've been in a drought for two years. 90 degrees is a cool day. It really is the gateway to hell. Moving to Oregon once I finish school.

    I would suggest not finishing school and just heading to Oregon right now. I've never been to a state where every coffe shop employee has a college degree. Save yourself the debt and just go apply at the startbucks of your choice!


    For what it's worth i loved it in oregon, jsut found the above observation to hold very true.

    A lot of you must have gone to school in Texas. The OP is talking about Kansas City, Missouri ,not Kansas City, Kansas.

    Granted...Kansas City, Kansas is full of cross-eyed inbreds who still believe the Earth is only six thousand years old and Adam and Eve rode their dinosaurs to church on Sunday. But Kansas City, Missouri has some kick-ass BBQ and you can't fault a city for that!

    Who says young American men are pussies who can't change a tire, never go outside, and don't know how to talk to chicks?
