Google will expand its Fiber Internet and TV service to Olathe, Kan.

The Internet Giant announced the news on Tuesday shortly after the Olathe City Council approved an agreement to bring Google Fiber to the Kansas City-area city.

Google said it still has “a lot of planning and engineering work to do” before Fiber can go live in Olathe, including an announcement on pre-registration and construction timing, but it clarified the expansion will not change Google Fiber’s published construction schedule for eligible homes in Kansas City, Kan. and Central Kansas City, Mo.

“Hopefully, this is the first of several announcements that we’ll be able to make about bringing Google Fiber to additional cities in the KC metro area; so stay tuned,” Google added.
