Google announced the launch of an Early Access program for Google Fiber for Small Business in central Kansas City. It's available immediately in a "handful of fiberhoods" in both Kansas City, KS and Kansas City, MO.

Businesses in the area can sign up for a gigabit connection. These will be the very first businesses to get Google Fiber.

"A super-fast Internet connection can have a big impact on unlocking new possibilities for small businesses," says Carlos Casas, Kansas City Field Team Manager for Google Fiber. "From the start, small business owners have told us that they want Google Fiber to help them move faster, work better together, reach new parts of the world without boarding a plane, and save time for the important things—like growing their business."

"Earlier this year, we started a pilot in Kansas City to learn more about what business owners need," says adds Casas. "We heard from documentary filmmakers, flower shops, web development agencies, and more. All of these small businesses have a lot of ideas on how a faster Internet connection could speed up their entire business — we can’t wait to see what they do with Google Fiber."

Eligible small businesses can check out the website for more details and to register for updates.

Google recently announced that its launching Fiber in Austin in December. The small business program will expand later on.
