The service was approved last night, so Google does not yet know when it’ll have the service available to customers.
Google Fiber is making its way to another part of Kansas.
The search giant on Thursday announced that Shawnee, a city right outside of Kansas City, has voted to bring Google Fiber to its residents. Google Fiber is already available in Kansas City, which is quite close to Shawnee.
Google Fiber has been expanding its footprint slowly across the U.S., with the company recently announcing that it’ll be made available to Austin, Tex. residents. Provo, Utah will also receive Fiber service.
Google on Thursday did not say when its service will be available to Shawnee residents, since it still has “a lot of planning and engineering work” to complete before bringing Fiber to the city.
