Letter to the Editor about Google Fiber

I am a Raytown resident that signed up for advance notifications from Google

Fiber. The initial hoo ha I saw was that Raytown was the third city to get Google fiber service and that it was available in march. Today I finally got an email from them saying it was finally time to sign up.

Their website shows the map how they divvied up Raytown. My home is in #12 I believe.

Anyway…my KC friends are saying it is faster and more reliable than everything we have now. Most people will take a monthly plan, but if you read the fine print, there is this oddball option that if you pay a one time fee, it is free internet for 10 years! OK. It’s a chunk of money, but 10 years?

I called city hall. They have no one “coordinating” with Google fiber. I asked them to please update the city’s website. I had to leave a voice mail.

Oh, and no, I do not work for Google. I am a resident that lives at 59th and Sterling. All the current internet options stink and Raytown being home of the first few cities to get Google fiber kind of helps put Raytown on the map and show we are not a little podunk town, we are looking forward.

You may contact me if you wish. Or not. Thank you.
