I was just pinged about this by a coworker.  http://fiber.google.com/about/  My neighborhood isn't eligible. 

But if you are in one of the eligible neighborhoods, have a need for and can afford $120 a month for HDTV and super fast internet, it's a good idea to preregister.   The usual $300 installation fee will be waived if you do sign-up early.


$120 seems pretty reasonable to me. I pay $10 less than that for Time Warner and I hate both my slow internet and crap tv service. Unfortunately I am in an area where it is not available yet.  :-[

The Google "RV" was at Rosedale today and I tried to get pre-reg'd, but the service wasn't working... I told them that it seem very Ironic...

 I'm trying to pre-reg from home, but it keeps telling me It cant find my address...

 At the top in indicates KCK and KCMO, well I live in Roeland Park and I wonder if that's the issue...?

 Is it gonna be available in JUST KCK and KCMO? Anybody know?

I know that feel bro.  I'm in Mission and it didn't recognize my address either.  :(

Yes, currently it is only available in KCK and KCMO.  See the predetermined "fiberhoods" for KCK here:  https://fiber.google.com/cities/kck/#header=check

However, you're not completely out of luck as they have plans to expand out from these areas in their next roll-out phase in early 2013.  They recommended that you fill out the form after it fails to find your address, and attempt to get others in your area to do the same.

Considering I can't even get DSL where I live, I won't get any hopes up for this. Living out in the country on 14 acres has it's perks...but slow internet is not one I wanted HAHA
Where'd my disc go?

There's no way Google is going to actually sell cable without ESPN.  They are still negotiating it, promise.

Also, Ward Parkway North just hit it's pre-reg number!
