I just registered.

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.

Right, because hiring a million workers to get everything installed in two weeks makes perfect business sense.

Instead, building a deployment team that works at a consistent pace over the next year to deploy the service makes much more business sense. After that, they've already posted a list of the next five cities they're going to service (expanding outward from Kansas City), which they will presumably time so that their deployment team can continue working at a consistent pace.

I would expect the size of the team (and rate of deployment) to scale up over time as the service proves itself (the kinks get worked out, procedures get streamlined and refined, etc).

I was luckily number 30 for KCMO. We were the first or second to totally qualify, too. And all the current shops (Mud Pie, Fric & Frac, and the Fiber Space) that currently have it are in my fiberhood. It would makes sense to start in Volker South, where all that is, despite being 30 on the list.

It's a city that doesn't have a highly developed internet network. What do you think?

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.

Those construction speeds are faster than the rate of U-verse build out I've seen in my city, and consistent with many other build outs I've seen.
