Fiber in Douglas county?


With all the attention Google is getting with the fiber plans in Kansas City, I thought it was a good idea to share some things I've heard, and see if anyone knows more.

A few years ago, I was sitting in the barbershop. The gentleman next to me was telling us that he'd received a letter from Sunflower/Knology (don't recall which who it was. or exactly how long ago it was) announcing that they would be deploying fiber based internet in his area. He lived southwest of town, somewhere near the Wakarusa school.

A call to Sunflower (or whoever) at the time, and a few inquiries since, have not elicited any more information.

However, there is one more interesting item. About a year ago, I was googling trying to find information about fiber deployments. Somewhere, and I can't find it again now, I saw a map of the Dougas county area that showed fiber deployed in a narrow band north and south of Clinton Lake.

Is there anyone out there with a fiber connection from Knology? Does anyone know anything more?

Yes, I know I haven't posted an IPS photo in a while. Don't give up hope. I haven't.

Pretty sure Knology ran fiber out 40 Highway west of town earlier this year. I live just north of Clinton Lake and they left a flier on my door. They also put a junction box out by the one for the phone company. I haven't signed up for it and don't know of anyone out here that did.
