A network for high-speed Internet was built in North Kansas City in 2005, running high-capacity fiber-optic lines by every address in the city. Now the city has leased the network to DataShack on the condition it gives residents free Internet for at least 10 years. In January 2013, a gigabit of bandwidth was donated to the North Kansas City School District by liNKCity and DataShack.
