Google is scheduled to begin construction Monday on its long-awaited super-speed Internet service in Kansas City, Kan.

Kevin Lo, the Google executive heading up the project, announced the
start of construction on the company's Google Fiber blog.

Google plans to install the fiber infrastructure first and then connect Google Fiber into homes across Kansas City.

Work to erect a network had been held up over issues about where Google would attach its fiber optic cables on utility poles owned by the Kansas City Board of Public Utilities.

The 1 gigabit-per-second Internet connections is expected to offer steady downloads about 100 times faster than most Americans can get in their homes with existing broadband services.
