Regulatory Filings Confirm Company's Plan

Google's 1 Gbps residential fiber service is officially underway in Kansas City
, with consumers expected to be up and running sometime in the second half of the year. Building on earlier rumors
that Google was planning to add an IPTV service into the mix, the company is reported to have applied for an FCC license back in December
allowing them to run the antenna farm necessary to get into delivering television. Additional evidence has been obtained this week
in the form of requests with the Missouri Public Service Commission and soon with officials in Kansas City, Kansas. Again, this is an interesting move given Google would control the network, the content, and even the set top box from end to end.
