Watch KC Startup Village get Google Fiber at 1 p.m. (Live stream)

Kansas City November 13, 2012 by Michael Stacy

Google will officially flip the switch on Google Fiber today in Kansas City, Kan., and the occupants of of KC Startup Village, a cluster of startups that has sprung up in a handful of houses along State Line Road in the Hanover Heights neighborhood, are among the first in line to receive Google's one-gigabit internet connection. 

In a post Saturday on the KC Startup Village blog, KCSV organizers announced the news and shared plans of broadcasting their big Fiber moment to the world: 

Then we got to thinking … why should we be the only ones to experience this? There are probably hundreds if not thousands of people who would love to also be a part of this exciting moment.

So, today at 1 p.m., as technicians finalize the Fiber installation process for a house owned by Matthew Marcus and occupied by startups Local Ruckus (co-founded by Marcus and Adam Arredondo), FormZapper and Leap2, Marcus and company will share a live stream of the proceedings.

Check the embed above at 1 for the live stream, and use the hashtag #KCSV to follow the action on Twitter.
