Google Fiber Could Get 20% Penetration of Some Kansas City, Mo. Neighborhoods, Quickly

Within just two days, more than 20 percent of the eligible neighborhoods on the Missouri side of Kansas City already have already reached Google’s thresholds for activating home drops. If all those households actually wind up subscribing, Techcrunch reports.


Each neighborhood can have a different threshold, ranging from five percent of homes to 25 percent of homes.


Google Fiber could hit at least 20 percent penetration relatively quickly. In the neighborhood with the highest rate of interest, Google Fiber has reached about 18 percent of homes. 


You can track progress online. 


Things apparently aren’t moving quite as fast in Kansas City, Kansas, though, where the median household income is significantly lower than on the other side of the city.
