Meanwhile, 180 miles to the north, in Iowa, Google is also getting busy. This week, the company announced plans to build a new $300 million data center in Council Bluffs, Iowa, just outside of Omaha. This facility is expected to continue to do what another Council Bluffs site did when it came online in 2009: host Gmail, Google Maps, Google+, and of course, search.
Given Google’s FCC filing from earlier this year, that Iowa station may also serve as a future IP video facility to be used in conjunction with Kansas City’s fiber service.
