Google has been working on its grand experimental project of providing high speed internet to the American people since 2010. Kansas City, Kansas was selected to be the experiment ground among 1,100 applicant communities in March 2011. The project has been hailed by many as one that will change the very dynamics of the region. Now, it seems that all preparations for the launch of this ultra-high speed broadband are complete and Google is set to launch the service by next week.


For now, Google has simply announced that launch date of the network is July 26. Apart from this, the search giant hasn’t revealed any further details about the event.

However, you can expect a more detailed announcement from Google on July 26th. The brief note from the company says that on July 26th, Google will be posting a more detailed announcement on the website google.com/fiber.

Technology blog GigaOm received an invitation from Google to the launch event which read, “We would like to invite you to a special announcement about Google Fiber and the next chapter of the Internet.” Google has repeatedly said that through this project, it does not intend to enter the broadband market. Rather, it plans to test new business models and applications which need very fast internet connections.

However, to be able to access this high-speed internet, a lot of people even in Kansas City will have to wait since it takes some time to lay down all the needed infrastructure. Thus, we expect that on this launch, Google will be rolling out the availability only to a limited region.

According to the General Manger of Google Access, Kevin Lo, “At first, we’ll focus on building this solid fiber backbone. Then, as soon as we have an infrastructure that is up and running, we’ll be able to connect Google Fiber into homes across Kansas City.”

Some analysts have also speculated that by running its own services over this high-speed network, Google intends to gauge the true broadband costs of using such services.
