People are making a big deal over the Google announcement this week about their fiber project in Kansas City. But what does it really mean to KCK and KCMO? To the rest of the U.S.?
The Co-Chairs of the Mayor's Bi-State Innovations Team, Michael Burke and Ray Daniels, are key stakeholders assisting the two cities maximize Google's fiber initiative. The Team recently released “Playing to Win in America’s Digital Crossroads,” a report that advises KC stakeholders how to benefit from the highspeed network.
Burke and Daniels help us analyze the Google announcement, and give us insights to what's next in KC's drive for gigabit broadband. They also discuss the previous day's international summit initiated from KC that addressed management issues that can help or hinder broadband initiatives.
