Recent article in the Star on Google Fiber.
Large numbers of people in Kansas City appear to be buying broadband to spare. Survey results from Bernstein Research, a Wall Street research firm, suggest Google Fiber is snaring much of the customer base in the growing number of neighborhoods where it sells TV and Internet hookups.

For the past couple weeks I look down out of my office window here in Grandview and see men digging holes all the way down the frontage road for Google Fiber. Very exciting that Raytown and Grandview have already started, but also a little frustrating that Lee's Summit has not got there yet. At least we know we will get Fiber, it's just a matter of being patient enough for it.

When is Google Coming to Lee’s Summit?
posted on September 06, 2013 08:48
In order to bring Fiber to Lee's Summit, we need to build brand new Fiber infrastructure throughout the entire city. We want to get Fiber to Lee's Summit residents as soon as possible, but unfortunately this process will take a lot of planning and lot of construction. We appreciate your patience, and as soon as we have more information to share about timing, we will!

I saw something about a meeting at the end of July.  I would think there should be an announcement sometime at or after that meeting.

+Google Fiber is expanding to the KC metro areas. I want to buy a home and raise my family here in Lee's Summit. #fiber  coming to a city means better communication for schools, emergency services, libraries and more. Tell your friends about fiber so your city can also be on the forefront of technology.

I'm stoked about it coming to Lees Summit!  I just hope it's sooner rather than years down the road!

Just as +Chris Clark mentioned, it looks as if our Google Fiber date will be sometime in 2015. #leessummit   #googlefiber

We still need 50+ in my Fiberhood, too. There are more "rainbow rabbits" popping up in neighbors' front lawns every few days, though.

I'm still keeping an eye on the blog and everywhere else for the latest new on Google Fiber and how soon it will be here in LS. Good things come to those who wait i suppose. :-)
Google Fiber has named Lee's Summit, Mo., as the next target community for its 1 Gbps fiber to the premises service after gaining city council approval.

Looks like +Google Fiber is expanding to Olathe Kansas. It's good to see them going to more places, but how about in the other direction please.

Introduction
I created this page when Google Fiber was first announced as coming to Kansas City. I, like much of the KC Metro, was very disappointed that Google Fiber would not reach us out here. So I created this page to create support for the expansion of Kansas City Google Fiber into the suburbs. Now that my town of Lee's Summit has made a deal to bring Google Fiber here this page serves as a community portal to news and information about Google Fiber in the LS area. Feel free to send me any news articles or any insider information you might have and I'll make sure to get it posted for everyone here. Also make sure to tell your friends about this page, because when it comes time to rally your Fiberhood we'll all need as much support as we can get! -This page was created and is maintained by +Casey Hudson
