KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Google says its long-awaited ultra-fast Internet service in Kansas City, intended as a showcase for the future, will cost $70 per month.

Google Inc. says it will offer three packages to Kansas City metro area residents, including "gigabit" Internet service - about 100 times faster than cable Internet - for $70 a month and a package with Internet and cable-TV for $120 a month.

Google has been adding optical fiber in the two-state Kansas City region for several months, after saying last year that the metro area would be the first in the nation to get its "Fiber for Communities" broadband service.

Google says it will offer a slower Internet option with no monthly fee for subscribers who pay a $300 installation fee.
