Time Warner has announced that they will be investing $25 million to expand their fiber broadband service to businesses across New York City. This initiative is similar to the one that Google is bringing to Kansas City, Missouri and Kansas City, Kansas.
Google is asking Kansas City residents to sign up for the service with a $300 installation fee. If a majority of certain neighborhoods agree, they will set up fast data speeds in the neighboring areas for a small cost. Time Warner is targeting specific businesses instead of consumers.
?We are very pleased to work with the City of New York to make significant investments to ensure that this city has the technology infrastructure to successfully compete in a worldwide marketplace,? stated Time Warner Cable Business Class, East Region President Ken Fitzpatrick.
