KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Google Fiber has expanded its service area into Johnson County, Kan., before even launching its service.
The new internet and television service has reached a tentative agreement with three communities in Johnson County, Kansas’ most populous, according to a post on Friday on the Google Fiber Blog .
The communities are Westwood, Westwood Hills and Mission Woods.
“Pending approval from each of the three City Councils, we plan to include these communities in a future rally for Google Fiber,” Google Access General Manger Kevin Lo wrote in the post.
Google is currently taking pre-registrations in Kansas City, Kan., and central Kansas City, Mo., for its Fiber service, which is set to launch in September in “fiberhoods” that have the most interest. Residents in north and south Kansas City, Mo., will be able to register during a second.
Lo said the new additions to Johnson County do not affect the construction schedule for the previously-scheduled rallies.
