Almost a year after they made their first splashy announcement, Google began construction last week on its long-awaited ultrafast Internet service. While the company says they’re now laying fiber in KCK, they declined to say which neighborhoods they would be working in.

In just a moment, we’ll get an update on the project from Mike Burke and Ray Daniels who are leading the Mayors’ Bi-State Google Innovation Team. But first, we wanted to show you how the Kauffman Foundation is now envisioning what a Google future might mean for Kansas City.
