KANSAS CITY, Kan. — Google Fiber plans to hook up the first customer to its new ultra-fast, high speed internet service Tuesday afternoon.

The house at 4454 State Line in Kansas City, Kan., is a part of the KC Startup Village, a part of town where dozens of entrepreneurs from across the country have gathered to be the first to experience Google Fiber and apply it to their small businesses.

A utility box has already been installed on the electrical poles out back, but the connection from the box the house will begin at 1 p.m. The event will be streamed live.  You can learn more and get updates on Twitter by typing in #kcsv.

Installation for the rest of Kansas City, Kan., and Kansas City, Mo., is expected to run through the fall of 2013.

Also next year, Google Fiber plans to begin offering high speed internet service to residents who live in the Northland and south Kansas City.
