KANSAS CITY, Mo. - The first customer to receive Google’s new Fiber internet service says it is working out just fine for him.
"It's exciting," Devon Teran said Tuesday as Google announced the installation of Fiber into more houses in Teran’s Fiberhood, in the Hanover Heights neighborhood of Kansas City, Kan.
The historic district sits between State Line Road and Rainbow Boulevard to Olathe Boulevard and West 43rd Avenue.
Teran’s home was one of the pre-selected homes that had Google Fiber installed to test the new Internet and television service.
"It's easy to operate and it's definitely faster; I can download movies faster and the quality is much better," he explained.
Teran got the basic package of internet service which costs $25 a month.
"My friends were actually disappointed that we didn't get the full TV and internet package but my wife and I didn't need all of that so we just got the basic service," Teran said.
The full Google package is package is $120 a month.
The next neighborhood to get Google Fiber will be Dubs Dread. Installation there should begin in December. There will eventually be 180 Google Fiberhoods in the Kansas City metro area.
