Google Fiber Coming to Olathe, Kansas

Google Fiber has been a big buzz maker here in the Kansas City area for a while.  The service was announced to Kansas City, KS with a lot of fanfare a couple of years back and has been the envy of everyone else in the Kansas City area ever since.
 
Now comes news that the service is moving beyond its initial area of rollout and will be coming to the city of Olathe, KS soon.
 
This is some really great news for the KC area.  While the initial area was deemed pretty small by the rest of the community, we were all hopeful that expansion would follow.
 
My home is probably about a mile from the Olathe city limit so I'm highly hopeful of an expansion to me in the not too distant future… but at this point there's no way of telling.
 
The service has download speeds 100 times faster and upload speeds 1000 times faster than normal broadband.  Needless to say, I can't wait to get my hands on some of that!
