    It took a mere month-and-a-half for 180 neighborhoods around the dual Kansas City's to hop on the path to become 'fiberhoods', Google has announced. The company first announced its intention to rollout its jaw-dropping 1Gbit/s Internet service in Kansas City, MO and KS, and the response was staggering right out of the gate. While it'd seem likely that every neighborhood would reach its minimum sign-up goals, only 89% actually had.

    Only reason my town got lucky with FiOS is because we were the test bed for Southern Cali.

    The same thing happened with my town oddly enough when DSL was first hitting the scene. It was awesome being on 3Mbit/s when most people I knew were on 56K or less.
