Google Fiber Space Opens Tomorrow

Are you Fiber-ready? Starting tomorrow, Kansas Citians can experience the possibilities of Fiber speeds firsthand in the Google Fiber Space: 1814 Westport Road, Kansas City, MO. While not mandatory, we strongly encourage visitors to make an appointment. Reservations can be made on the Fiber Space webpage and selecting the day you want to come on the calendar. Please note that parking at the Fiber Space is limited.

Here’s a little bit about the Fiber Space

Google Fiber is Internet 100 times faster than what most Americans have today. Those speeds can be hard to imagine. The Fiber Space is designed to help you experience the benefits of super fast Internet in entertainment, healthcare, and education. Your everyday activities from watching TV to gaming are enhanced and enriched using Google Fiber.

Keep an eye out for upcoming events. The Fiber Space Lounge will serve as an event space where we’ll host local speakers, talks, viewing parties, and other community gatherings. Visit the online events calendar to see a full line-up of what’s ahead. You can also check back here on the blog for regular updates.


Top off your trip to the Fiber Space with tasty treats from The Fiber CafĂ©. The menu features baked goods and coffee drinks from our neighbors such as Mud Pie Vegan Bakery & Coffeehouse. While you’re in the neighborhood, check out some of our friends: Cupini’s, Fric & Frac, Pilates 1901, and Room 39, and see the cool experiences they’ve created with Google Fiber.

Local art

The Fiber Space will regularly feature work from different KC artists. Currently on display we have Nerdbots, custom designed robots built from pieces found in antique and thrift stores by artists Nicholas and Angela. These robots don’t like to be touched, but they’d love to meet you just the same. Look out for Spencer who enjoys advanced Linux programming and Swifty who is serious about data mapping and medical magazines.

Can you help us find them?

During the construction of the Fiber Space, our crew carefully hid three miniature rabbit figurines throughout the site for safekeeping. They were so carefully hidden, now we can’t seem to find them. Let us know if you spot them during your visit!
