My fiberhood (ranked in the 50s because of major registration issues in my hood) will deploy in Fall of 2013.
Taking a year to get 1/3 of the areas wired? This is a PR project and not a business.

KC was one of first metros to have broadband in the mid-90s, has several ISPs and overbuilders, a bunch of sonet rings through the metro and over a dozen long haul providers. KC is probably above average developed. It's just the low income areas that have less broadband users (about 20-25% do not, which is US avg). Google selected the two low income areas of the metro as part of rollout so skews the appearance for whole city/metro.
