Re: better then hotel rates Mostly this illustrates rather starkly just how irrelevant "fiber" is to most consumers.
If you could see me... You would see me rolling my eyes. This is one of the most retarded ideas ever.
"Google Fiber Tourism" - LOL
I do not, have not, and will not work for AT&T/Comcast/Verizon/Charter or similar sized company.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.

Re: If you could see me... It's a goofy idea but even worse is that the location is one of not-so-great areas of KC with little bungalow homes. When it rolls out to the Missouri side next year, there will be much more attractive/active areas that could make it a little more appealing. It might go well in Xroads arts district, Westport or City Market area - not a dilapidated bungalow hood with no amenities.
This is KC on the MO side. Nothing like the bland KS side...

Will Do It Going to Kansas for work in June. So I think I will book this for a weekend.
Re: Will Do It Looks like advertising here works!
Huh? Only geeks care about the Internet speed. The rest of the population can pretty much give a "yawn!".
Not to mention why would I want to sample something I'll probably never get to experience? Just doesn't make sense to be something to want to rent out.

Re: Huh? I think the hope would be that by experiencing it, you would help stir the demand for it. Unfortunately, as has been pointed out numerous times in here, there is very little application developed yet for this speed. That doesn't mean there won't be once the speed is available but this 'tour guide' will hardly be providing a unique experience to WOW his tourists.
Re: compare/contrast Chances are if they spent all the money to be the first major hub for hydrogen fuel, they would simply be out a lot of money. The industry is not willing to embrace hyrdogen fuel and neither is the government.

The host can only charge what people will pay, assuming they will pay anything.
The story, now run a second time, demonstrates that there is more to life than "faster" broadband, contrary to the drumbeat that plays here daily.
KC needs a lot more more than Google Fiber to attract the next wave of startup geeks. Its a matter of inertia. Brilliant minds are more attracted to places already densely populated with intellectual and creative folks.
Re: Greed... double post, delete
Re: Greed... Kansas City is like the dead sea for IT and has been for at last the post 6 years! I don't know where these people get this information.
ToS Wouldn't this technically violate the ToS? This could be considered business use.
Did I miss something? WTF could a single end non-commercial consumer do with a symmetrical 1 Gbps connection for just one day?
