Google is picking select Kansas City companies to test Google Fiber
prototype offerings for business. The business rollout in Kansas City is the first of its kind for the Gigabit Internet service, with Google saying that it is "in the beginning of figuring out what that product could look like, and that's why we're launching this pilot." Small businesses in the area have been emailed to inquire if there was an interest in testing the service, in exchange for feedback. Applicants must respond by April 25 with staff size, network requirements, and the name of its current Internet provider.
