"For the month of March 2010, the city of Topeka will be known as Google, Kansas
." Mayor Bill Bunten says the proclamation is an attempt to stand out from the crowd
, as cities around the United States have until March 26 to tell Google they're interested in participating in the Fiber for Communities
program, part of the company's recently announced plans to build a series of superfast broadband networks across the country [previously on MetaFilter
]. Other cities are trying to get Google's attention, but Duluth, Minnesota, has upped the ante
by pledging to name its firstborn sons "Google Fiber" and its firstborn daughters "Googlette Fiber" in a video [YouTube, 3:34]
spoofing Topeka's efforts.

Last week when I called verizon
to transfer my phone service, they suckered me into ordering this dsl service. What really got me, in addition to what they have listed on the site was the 30 day free trial, and that they supposedly use STATIC ip addresses. I was also told that their modem has a router built in that assigns individual ip addresses to each computer. [I have 3 - Windows server, Linux, and Mac]. Too good to be true, right?
