Having set up fiber-optic cables in Kansas City, MO., earlier this month, Google Inc. recently filed an application to bring a video service to Kansas City residents. Google is looking to offer the city Internet service at speeds more than 100 times faster than what is already offered, and at a competitive rate. Time Warner Cable and other cable and satellite companies serving Kansas City may soon be looking at Google as a new competitor, according to The Wall Street Journal.
While their application is still being reviewed by the Missouri Public Service Commission, Google continues to explore all of the products they may offer with “Google Fiber”. Google is also in the process of acquiring Motorola Mobility Holdings, which includes a cable box business that Google may offer its customers so they can use their televisions to surf the Internet and online videos.
