Not long after the arrival of Google’s super-fast Internet in Kansas City, more U.S. cities could soon see Internet speeds matching those of Google Fiber. Fast-moving plans in places such as Lawrence, Kan. and Omaha, Neb., and the spread of Google Fiber to Austin, Texas, and Provo, Utah, signal what advocates of speedier broadband say is the remaking of high-tech infrastructures. Four years ago, U.S. broadband speeds ranked 22nd in the world. Now, due largely to marginal upgrades of Internet services sold by cable and telephone companies, the U.S. ranks eighth.
