Google Fiber Names Another City: Raytown, Mo.

Google  (NASDAQ: GOOGL  )  Fiber's reach continues to grow. On Tuesday, city leaders in Raytown, Mo., voted to allow the search giant to expand its super-fast Internet service into the city. The announcement comes on the heels of last week's Gladstone, Mo., announcement .

As with past announcements, the Google Fiber team says it will "need to plan and build" its network in the city before finally making Fiber available to Raytown, so the city will have to wait awhile for connectivity. Since Google is building its service by demand, "fiberhoods" -- neighborhoods of 250-1,500 households -- that meet a pre-registration goal will get Fiber service.

Other cities slated for Google Fiber service include Grandview, Mo.; Shawnee, Kan.; Kansas City, Kan.; Kansas City, Mo.; Austin, Texas; Provo, Utah; and Gladstone, Mo.
