Google wants to bring 1GB download fiber to your neighborhood

The world’s largest search engine wants to bring you fiber to your door! The best part about it? They want to keep it open to all!

If you are a city official or just live in a town and think you should be nominated, then you need to head on over here. While your doing that, watch this video from the announcement:
